Bonnie and Sarah Gemmell are the mother-daughter team behind Spicer Bags. When their friend Sally Spicer Rankine was diagnosed with cancer, Bonnie and Sarah bought the company rather than allow it to close. Today, they continue to build the company—and Sally’s legacy—in a way that would make her proud.
Their earthy, eye-catching Cork Collection is made from cork that is harvested sustainably in Portugal—home to 50% of the world’s Cork Oak trees—yet Spicer uses other American components whenever possible (canvas woven in New Jersey, for example).
When you carry a Spicer bag, you’re not only making a fashion statement, you’re stating your support for environmentally minded, American manufacturing.
