Cache and Carry
With a discerning eye for style and current trends, Allison Teich McGowan’s line of consciously produced, chic handbags “align your love of fashion with your love of the planet.”
Made in Brooklyn, the TEICH line features a variety of stylish materials that tread lightly on the earth. Past collections have included everything from organic cotton, vegetable-tanned leather, hemp canvas and linen to repurposed and reused fabrics diverted from a life in the landfill. For a carryall that’s still small enough to tuck under the arm, check out the scallop clutch with its strong lines and feminine details ($185). Traveling couldn’t get more trendy with the TEICH zippered pouch – ready to go from daytime cosmetics bag to night on the town ($45).
A retail location (East Village, NY) and a full selection of handbags online makes selecting the perfect TEICH bag a cinch, plus it’s likely you may walk away with a bonus piece of one-of-a-kind jewelry, thanks to owner Allison’s discerning taste.
