What to buy here: BeckSöndergaard accessories.

Accessorize your outfit with a colorful eel skin bag or purse by Danish designers BeckSöndergaard. The bags and purses are extremely popular and have for many Copenhageners become the very trademark of BeckSöndergaard. The eel skin purses cost $60. Bags are a little more expensive, but affordable. The eel skin derives from Alaskan deep sea eels, which are eaten. Thus the skin is a bi-product. Eel skin leather is very soft and strong at the same time and has unique bites and scratches. Also it is meant to bring you good luck. Besides from the bags and purses BeckSöndergaard designs other types of accessories, like scarfs for instance. Organic cotton is a growing part of the collections and is certified with GOTS, Global Organic Textile Standard, which looks at production, processing, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, exportation, importation and distribution. Danish designers Lis Beck and Anna Søndergaard are the creative forces behind the design company BeckSöndergaard and known for their love of eel skin leather, bright colors and Scandinavian simplicity.
