Life After Death – Im:Mortal Handbags

November 10, 2010

A Eulogy for Purses Bought on Impulse

Let it be known these one-wear wonders went peacefully and are in a better place, no longer crushed at the bottom of the closet.

The purses are survived by Im:mortal, a versatile line of handbags that won’t expire. Handmade by a Portland duo, they’re designed to be sacred artifacts, not fleeting fads.

The earthy, Navajo-inspired collection includes notched leather pouches, laser-cut circle bags, fringed sling purses, and wool Southwestern backpacks. Some even contain quartz talismans in secret compartments.

And because each bag is crafted from the finest materials (organic cotton, supple leather, smooth ultrasuede), they’ve got plenty of life in them.

May the others rest in peace.

Available at Magpie & Rye, at Prairie Collective, 262 Divisadero Street, at Haight Street (415-701-8701 or, $64-$436. To see styles, go to
