GIVE GIRLS A CHANCE TO BETTER THEIR FUTURES
Evil Eye Envie donates a portion of our profits to ÇYDD, an NGO that supports primary and secondary school education for girls in rural Turkey.
Modern and authentic, Evil Eye Envie handbags are made with perfection of craftsmanship from renowned Turkish leather. Each Evil Eye Envie bag is made by hand and given individual attention at every step of the production process. All leather products are waterproofed. To clean stains, apply petroleum jelly to the affected area, then wipe away gently. To best treat your leather, store your Evil Eye Envie bag in its original dustbag.

All of Evil Eye Envie's products are handmade from top quality leather in an artisan workshop in Istanbul.
