At Mama’s Got a Brand New Bag, we are sincere in our mission to assist in helping heal the world by preventing further damage from being created by invasive species such as the Dragonfin and the invasive Lionfish. We also use the leathers that lay dormant in warehouses to show that we already have more than enough and should use what is already in existence. Through this process, several thousand jobs have been created in the fields of fishing and treating these invasive skins and by using existing cow leather we stop the carnage of further production.
Mama’s Got a Brand New Bag cares—we care about women entrepreneurs, we care about Mother Earth, and we care about you. We promise to provide the best possible customer service as well as the best possible quality handbags. We may not be the most prominent luxury handbag manufacturer, but we are confident that we have the biggest heart. They are more than bags to us; they are agents of change. Our company is more than just fashion; we want to make this world better, one bag at a time.
Each bag tells a story, and by using the invasive Lionfish and Dragonfin leather, we are helping restore the coral reef ecosystems in the Gulf of Mexico and to assist in restoring its natural flora and fauna.
In less than forty years, the invasive Lionfish is responsible for destroying the native fish population and coral reefs from Brazil to Boston to Barcelona. Over 42 million of these invasive Lionfish make their living in the coral reef and kill over 79% of native fish babies and eat over 70,000 grown native fish a year.
The invasive Dragonfin was brought from Southeast Asia in the 1970s to manage ponds in the United States; however, with massive flooding in the 1990s, these fish managed to escape and infiltrate the Mississippi River. These fish have wreaked havoc on the native fish of the Mississippi River and the inhabitants along the river, whose livelihoods depend on the 150 native fish that this predator threatens.
