Canopy Verde was founded in Fall 2008 by designer Linda Wong. The line uses organic cotton and bamboo fabrics, chrome-free leather, Oeko Tex-certified dyes, and chemical-free embroidery to make stylish, practical bags for women who want to look good without harming the earth.

“In creating Canopy Verde, I wanted to be very thoughtful about any component that was put into the bag as well as the construction methods,” explains Wong. “Special attention was paid to everything down to the lining and the dyeing process.”
