Spring is a time for new beginnings and no one knows that better than Linda Wong, who is relaunching her Canopy Verde accessories label with a completely cruelty-free collection of totes and clutches. Inspired by the Brooklyn designer’s Prospect Park neighborhood, mid-century Danish design, and her two toddlers, the carryalls feature organic cotton, Oeko Tex-certified dyes, chemical-free embroidery, and polyurethane pleather accents. “My bags are designed to meet the needs of a working professional, busy mom on the go, or a group of girlfriends planning a weekend out of town,” Wong tells Ecouterre. To toast the arrival of warmer temperatures, we’re giving away one of Canopy Verde’s brand-spanking-new Cassia Mini bags in your choice of violet or slate. Feeling lucky? Enter now to win!
