Shimi is currently waiting impatiently to get our hands on Bo Belle Londons beautiful ethically made Eel Skin Handbags, Wallets and Purses. We have blogged about these gorgeous products before, but we are rather entranced by them.
Bo Belle products are made from stunning Eel Skin Leather, a by-product of the food industry in Asia. Eel is a preferred choice on nutrition in Asian countries and thus is a viable alternative over other exotic skins such as snakeskin. Bo Belle London provide beautiful products that are also affordable, and are made from sustainable leather, so the animal is not being destroyed purely for fashion.
Bo Belle has had some wonderful press recently, and just last week Claire Watt-Smith - the founder of Bo Belle London won second price in the Red's Hot Women Awards : http://www.redmagazine.co.uk/redAwards2010/redhotwomenawards2010_hotlist.php .
We will have these great designs in store very soon at http://www.shimi.com.au/
