The Center for Family Services is proud to debut our 2023 IT BAG, created by the internationally famed designer, Jennifer Tattanelli. The bag will be available for purchase at the Old Bags Luncheon which will take place on February 22, 2023, at The Breakers Palm Beach. This one of a kind beauty is the balance of tradition, handcraft and art. The bag’s body is made of natural wood, handwoven by artisans and follows the Italian ancient basket weaving tradition. Jennifer comes from a family of artisans. Her Italian grandmother was a basket weaver in the little village of Tosi, located on the outskirts of Florence, Italy and her American grandmother was an artist and folk art collector.

The interior and exterior flap, base of the bag, handle and shoulder strap are made of naturally tanned Red tone high quality Crocodile. The bag’s interior is lined with soft natural suede leather. The bag’s base is flat so that it can sit on any surface. The clean modern lines of this year’s IT BAG are the perfect combination. The unique design is timeless. Retail Value $5,890.
