1608 Breakfast at Tiffany’s Cigar Box Purse
This little Audrey Humadorable cigar box purse has been so very popular so I decided to bring her back! She gets scooped before I can blink! This oh so cute image of Audrey with her coffee to go and blowing a bubble gawking at the jewelry in the Tiffany’s window has been embellished with pearls and crystals. I used a beautiful teal (tiffy) blue and black, wooden Camacho Ecuador cigar box. These cigar boxes come with what they call a baby grand piano finish- 16 layers of lacquer! They are hard to find and expensive to purchase. The beaded handle is made up of gold, black, pearl and gold beads and a light blue vegan leather tassel. I lined the inside with black velvet and black lace trim on the sides. The back of the upcycled cigar box purse has the original back velvet and the authentic Camacho scorpion logo remains on the inner lid. I flipped the cigar box so that the opening is now on the top and it has been given a gold three ball lock for security. Eight gold purse feet have been added to the back and bottom for protection. Gold corner protectors have also been added. Gold 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. 6.75x 10 x 2.5” ** sizes will vary slightly. THIS IS AN AUTHENTIC CIGAR BOX PURSE, SO SMALL FLAWS INFLICTED BY THE SMOKERS OF THE CIGARS ARE TO BE EXPECTED! They only add character and charm! 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.
