French luxury brand Coperni unveils their latest limited edition purse made of meteorites.

According to Coperni, the meteorite pieces will be individually sourced per order and can come from different locations.
The piece featured in the promotional image is from a meteorite that fell on Earth around 55,000 years ago. It has been certified 100% authentic by Theatrum Mundi.
The unique purse “subtly combines archeology, design, and classical and primitive art.”
It is handcrafted by the Italian factory Semar and can take around six weeks to arrive upon ordering. As each piece is entirely handmade, they may slightly differ in shape.
Standing at around 23 cm in height and weighing 1.8 kg, the Meteorite Swipe bag comes with a certificate of authenticity. The bag also features an embossed Coperni logo.
Just a week after the brand unveiled the out of this world purse, their Instagram post has reached over 13,000 likes with many commenting that it’s a work of art.
