Cortizza Monaco Handbag Review and Giveaway

I've always enjoyed filling my home and closet with unique treasures not seen everywhere. So when the owner of Cortizza contacted me, I was all ears. Cortizza makes a line of handbags and accessories. I know you're thinking "What's so unique about that?" Well, these are not your average handbags, they are made of cork! Checkout the Monaco Handbag we received ~

I can't believe how soft and smooth this bag is. Dark brown leather straps are a striking contrast to the natural cork. The interior is lined in dark brown fabric and has a cell phone holder and zippered pocket. The Monaco Handbag retails for $180.



I've never given much thought to how cork is made but I found the story fascinating. Cork Oak Trees are not damaged or cut down in the harvesting of cork. The average Cork Oak Tree lasts 200 years. Cork is hypo-allergenic and dirt, water, fade and stain-resistant. Cork Oak Forests support 25,000 species including endangered birds, plants and wildcats. I learned something new, thanks Cortizza!



This is one of their newest designs the Porto Satchel {LOVE} ~
They also just debuted a pretty line of cork jewelry. 



Cortizza also makes cork business accessories, wine totes, luggage tags, they even sell cork fabric by the yard! Cortizza is offering Chic Luxuries' readers free shipping through August 31 with code ChicSummer at checkout.



Chic Giveaway! ~ Pop the cork, Cortizza is gifting one lucky winner the Monaco bag!

The Valencia Cork Handbag is spectacular. Beautiful, stylist and fantastic that Cotizza utilizes unusual materials together like cork and leather. Very original and gorgeous designs. Also love the bracelet with the chunky semi precious stones. xox
