Convert Bag | Seafoam

Convert Bag | Seafoam


This little Convert Bag is very special because I incorporated a small corner of an artist friend's paint-splattered dropcloth. I love the idea of collaborating with a different material and different artist in this way. The leather is a very soft perforated cowhide -- very different than any other leather I've worked with before. I had just a small amount so I decided to dye it with indigo and transform it into this versatile little design. 




Every Maven design is versatile, but the Convert Bag is our *most* versatile. Thanks to our signature Convert Strap design, this foldover leather purse can be your classic crossbody, a hip bag, a chest bag and it can even be worn with no strap at all --- just clip the strap off and attach the Convert directly to your belt loops for ultimate hands-free freedom. Did we mention it's a clutch, too? 


P.S.: There are two card slips and a pocket on the interior so you can ditch your bulky wallet and feel the power of weightlessness. What more do you need?
