Says Brazilian artisan Tacy, "What I do brings me great joy and pleasure, and what I do is create things that are different." He designs this creative sling handbag, crafted by hand to resemble the fierce face of an alligator. Tacy works with brown leather that features a hexagonal textured pattern, carefully cut with a flap that folds down to form the nose. Plastic and brass accents create the eyes and nostrils. Slung over the shoulder on an adjustable strap, this accessory opens at the top with a zipper to an animal print cotton blend lining.
