Conservation is The Key
By sourcing python from the Florida Everglades, our collaboration with brave local python hunters like Amy Siewe helps to restore the delicate ecosystem by eradicating the invasive python species.
Conservation is the key
Our Sustainable Partnership
BSWANKY has partnered with the South Florida National Parks Trust and Everglades python hunters like Amy Siewe to create an international product line of exotic luxury handbags for a local cause. The Burmese Python, an invasive species, has caused devastation in the fragile Florida Everglades ecosystem, driving some native mammal populations to the brink of extinction. Pythons’ rapid rate of reproduction has brought their population to an unsustainable and overpopulated number: over 300,000. Because of the introduction of several different python species being recklessly released into the Everglades, there are no two Florida pythons that look the same, so each bag becomes an exclusive limited edition accessory. We will be giving 5% of sales on all python handbags and 100% of sales from python keychains back to the South Florida National Parks Trust because we believe Conservation is The Key!
All of our designs and production will be sourced from the Everglades and handcrafted in our atelier in Sarasota, Florida.
Our Blue Butterfly Give back
Compassion, It's In The Bag
The Sofita Mariposa is not only a lifelong investment in style, it is an investment in our community. Much like its butterfly namesake, the Sofita Mariposa a symbol of hope and life, with 15% of the total sale of each Mariposa handbag and 100% of sales from each Sapphire Mariposa Keychain going directly to support Tidewell Foundation and Blue Butterfly Family Grief Center.
BSWANKY is proud to share a brand partnership with the Tidewell Foundation, Inc. an organization dedicated to advancing the health of our community by supporting the programs of Tidewell Hospice. The Sofita Mariposa luxury handcrafted handbag was inspired by Tidewell’s Blue Butterfly Family Grief Center, a free grief support program offered to children and families who have experienced the death of a family member. Supported 100% by the Tidewell Foundation, this evidence-based program inspired BSWANKY to create the Sofita Mariposa in recognition of Blue Butterfly’s mission that no child should grieve alone. With each Sofita Mariposa bag purchased, you salute these children and their families on their healing journey.

Each honey-colored heritage leather handbag is hand painted by Dallas-based artist Cherie Fruehan, truly making these accessories inspirational and iconic pieces of art. Historic Bethlehem Museum, located outside of Philadelphia, and Florida’s Coral Gables Museum will be including the Mariposa Handbag in exhibits this fall. We hope that with the sale of these limited edition luxury handbags we can help empowered women and children alike to spread their wings.
In representation of the Unreal courage and strength of those affected by breast cancer, our Unreal Pink Collection takes on a fearless and tenacious persona. We wanted to embody and honor these women and those who support them with their own line of symbolic leather goods. The Unreal Pink Collection of handbags is devoted to raising Breast Cancer awareness.
