Vince the Black Cat Bag | Wicker Darling

This product is no longer available

Vince the Cat: a spooky kooky brother for Orangey the Cat, and vegan-friendly too! Our newest wicker cat bag is a Halloween-friendly black cat accessory featuring green eyes, and a delightfully playful orange and white pin dot lining. Every part of of Vince is vegan-friendly: cotton webbing handles, satin logo label inside, and Vince's nose, eyes, and fastening are all plant materials. 

Lovely Vince was named for a family cat we brought home when I was five years old, who lived to be twenty years old (he lived long enough to see my own son brought home!) - there's nothing unlucky about this black cat bag!

Handmade to Order

Our handbags are designed in Australia and lovingly crafted by hand by our weavers in the Philippines. As such, each and every bag will have minor differences, whether it's in the wicker, leather work, or placement of other finishings. These are not faults, but rather a signature of hand craftsmanship from natural materials, and we consider these minor differences to be what makes every bag a unique piece of art. While every effort is made to photograph the true colour of our designs, monitors may display colours differently.

Due to our bags being made-to-order, upon occasion our ateliers may need to substitute materials used in the sample designs with different materials due to supply shortages. Where this occurs, the ateliers will do their best to find the closest possible substitute, and ensure the overall design remains consistent with the sample.

Our Ethics

Wicker Darling bags are woven from sustainably, ethically harvested rattan. Our ateliers source rattan from local co-ops and farms to support their communities and to minimise the distance the materials travel. Rattan is sustainably grown, harvested by hand, and by-products are composted. 

Bags are handmade by traditional artisans, providing employment with a focus on marginalised communities and nurturing traditional skills and handicrafts, and fostering micro-businesses and individual artisans. 

The overall aim is to reduce our environmental footprint as much as possible, and to provide meaningful, fairly paid employment opportunities to our Filipino artisans.
