Cornucopia Bag

Difficulty: Easy

The Cornucopia, like the iconic horn of plenty from whence it gets its name, evokes the autumnal harvest with its voluptuous shape. It's body is scored with color and texture, just like the great squashes that are ever present at the fest table.

It is a unique bag: it has a slim side profile and soft body that makes it easy to wear and carry because it is so soft against the body, fitting into a woman's curves effortlessly. It's voluminous width allows you to carry everything you need: Each bag is an ideal every-day purse. The small bag is for those ladies who travel light and want a light bag. The medium size will take you from the office to a gathering with friends, and the large size is for those who like to be prepared for all sorts of adventures at any moment . . . from the urban trek to a spur-of-the-moment weekend away.
