This fall, we are ready for some oceanic inspired accessories to make their way into our handbag collection. Heidi Mottram combines textures from the sea with deep and luxurious hues to create handbags that are bound to grab some much deserved attention this season. These bags are not only fashionable, but they are also eco-conscious, using sustainable leathers in the most expert way.
While we know that no mom is going to turn down a sentimental card and fresh bouquet of flowers on Mother's Day, we also know that every mother has an inner bagista waiting to be treated to a beautiful handbag. This year, it might be a thoughtful gesture to pick up a complimentary handbag to go with her all-time favorite sundress or to pick a sleek leather piece to show her how much you love her classic style. The Handbago team has selected a few of our favorite picks for mom to help our readers think outside the Mother's Day bouquet.

Elemental Threads is not your ordinary handbag brand. It's actually a company that makes custom handbags and pouches. Jessica designed a pouch that she could use as a makeup pouch or small bag that she could carry into a store without bringing her entire handbag. Made from a printed cotton resembling a wood grain with antique brass hardware, this straight wristlet is absolutely adorable and picture perfect for travel.
