Salvatore Ferragamo’s commitment to sustainability is highlighted through the new Earth Top Handle Bag.
Presented in just 500 exclusive pieces this new interpretation of the iconic Top Handle Bag created by Fiamma Ferragamo in the nineties, honours the bond between the brand and the Made In Italy Tradition, as well as the House’s commitment to using low impact materials. The Earth Top Handle Bag is made of FSC certified cork which is a natural and renewable resource that causes no harm to the trees when harvested. In addition, the lining is crafted from pure linen, a natural and biodegradable material; zipper tape and thread are made of 100% recycled and certified polyester, and the bag’s colour is finished with water-based treatments.
CEO Micaela le Divelec Lemmi says: “Authentic craftsmanship, creativity and innovation are Salvatore Ferragamo’s core values. So is sustainability. Salvatore Ferragamo, during his years of activity, was never afraid to innovate and use new materials. Today we continue to do so, with a look at the present. The experimental spirit, the Italian inventiveness, the sense of beauty and refinement, the connection between our feelings and social and environmental responsibility, are essential characteristics of our collections”.
Ferragamo has long chosen to adopt a social responsibility strategy that, in line with the Founder’s values, pursues objectives of economic growth while taking into account the social and environmental impact. The Earth Top Handle bag has obtained the ISO 14067 – Product Carbon Footprint certification, by virtue of which it is possible to quantify the emissions due to its manufacturing and compensate them, making the project “carbon neutral”.
The Earth Top Handle bag was launched as part of the prestigious Ferragamo’s Creations collection, a limited-edition series of numbered replicas of men’s and women’s designs from the archive that have made the history of fashion and are now available again.
