1420 Red Sequin, Skull Flask, Gasparilla, Cigar Box Purse
Where do I even start? This red Camacho, Triple Maduro cigar box is something to talk about all by itself before I even get to the up cycling! These cigar boxes have what they call a piano finish- 16 layers of lacquer! They are heavily hinged and come with a black velvet back and the Camacho scorpion logo on the inner lid. I decoupaged a red and hot pink sequin image onto the front of this cigar box purse and attached (bolted on) a black vegan leather holster containing a fully functional skull flask. This would be perfect for Gasparilla, here in Tampa, for Halloween, for anyone who loves skull and crossbones, pirates, or for anyone who just loves collecting unusual handbags! I guarantee compliments! Gasparilla is Tampa’s version of Mardi Gras. Pirates invade the city from the bay on flotillas and there are parades and beads for days! Four crystals and four metal skull and crossbones charms frame the corners. The box has been flipped so that the opening is on the top and given a heavy silver lock for security. The back has been left in it’s original state. Eight silver purse feet have been added to the back and bottom of the cigar box bag for more protection. Silver hardware has been attached to the sides so that you may add a strap that you already own. This makes these little cigar box purses of mine versatile in that they can be worn by the handle, over the shoulder or cross- body. I sell straps and gold and silver cross body chains too. The chain in the last photo is available, but not included. The handle is made up of pink, silver and skull with pink crystal eyed beads. The interior has been adorned with padded zebra fabric and hot pink trim. 7 x 9.5 x 2.5″ **Because of the weight of the flask , this cigar box purse is top heavy and does not stand up on it’s own. THIS IS AN AUTHENTIC CIGAR BOX PURSE, SO SMALL FLAWS INFLICTED BY THE SMOKERS OF THE CIGARS ARE TO BE EXPECTED! Large flaws will be noted in the description. If you don’t like what you see, I can do custom cigar box purses and can include anything you like!- pictures of family members, pets, places- you name it! I always ship insured.

History: Originally from Cuba, Simon Camacho was exiled and relocated to Miami, Florida, which is where he first started manufacturing cigars in 1961. An avid tobacco enthusiast himself, Camacho knew that he could obtain the finest tobaccos in Central America to make his signature smokes. He opened up his own tobacco factory in Miami and began having excellent tobaccos imported. As the business started taking off, Camacho set his eyes on Nicaragua as a place where he could manufacture his cigars. After relocating his facility, his business took off more than ever before. Before long, his cigars were beloved by famous smokers like Winston Churchill. Camacho eventually passed away in 1990. Five years later, the Eiroa family acquired the brand with the determination to continue his legacy. This was when the manufacturing facility was relocated to Honduras, another country known for its exceptional tobaccos. Julio Eiroa and Simon Camacho had a lot in common. Both of them were originally from Cuba but were transported to Florida during the revolution. Eiroa’s father had been a tobacco farmer since the early 1900s and had passed down his knowledge to his son. Shortly after the time of the brand’s acquisition, Julio’s son Christian took over. Julio had done well for himself and his family, acquiring massive plantations in Honduras where his signature tobacco could be cultivated. Christian was able to take the Camacho name to the next level by developing exceptional cigar products that became highly popular within the United States and around the world. By the late 1990s, about three million Camacho cigars were being produced annually, which shows how popular the name had become after the Eiroa family took over. In 2008, the Camacho brand and manufacturing facility were acquired by the Davidoff family. The Davidoff family was able to develop new branding and marketing strategies that have allowed the name to see success like never before. And, under the Davidoff family’s guidance, the name began to adhere to far more strict environmental guidelines.
