Flamingo (Monty!) Montoya Flamingo Handbag | Wicker Darling

This product is no longer available

Flamingo Montoya is our latest bespoke design, designed by Jasmine in Melbourne, and handmade using traditional weaving techniques by our artisans in the Philippines - Monty's primary materials are sustainably farmed and harvested rattan, leather, and linen for his lining. 

A vigorous and healthy group discussion on Instagram led to a consensus that Monty (MONTY!!) is a beautiful shade of fuchsia pink, with feathery white over pink on his wings, and a white, black and pink beak. 

Product Details

Monty's body is 10 inches from neck to tail, 7 inches crosswise, has a circumference of 24 inches, and is 15 inches from base to the tip of his head.

Flamingo Montoya weighs in at under 500 grams (what he weighs after you've deposited your shrapnel filled purse and 50 different red lipsticks inside him is entirely your business).

Gold hardware attaches the two leather handles; a bonus 52 inch leather strap (adjustable; can be shortened to 47 inches) can be clipped onto the hardware at the handles to allow for shoulder or crossbody wear of the bag. The handles are 22 inches long end to end, comparable with our other designs.

Lining: loose lining to take advantage of the internal shape of the bag.

As always, your Wicker Darling bag will be delivered with a soft, branded pink dustbag for storage, a gold logo pendant, and a hand-numbered and signed collector card.

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.
