‘Ignes Bags is a stunning range of accessories from Uruguay, founded by sister and brother team – Maria and Ignacio Estrada, which fuses together the cosmopolitan styling of Europe with unique quality-led South American leathers and a social responsibility edge.’
So says the press release…I also think they’re lovely bags! Ignes was selected as winner of the ‘Most Socially Responsible brand’ at the Handbag Designer Awards in New York in 2007, for their strong commitment to craftsmen and women who work at the Ignes production facility. The brand also supports a children’s charity in Uruguay that houses kids up to 8 years old who suffer abandonment, mistreatment or illness.
