FAQs + Commonly Asked Questions
What is Model M. made of?
Fashion-Flex—a proprietary polymer—is a hybrid EVA-closed cell material. EVA stands for ethylene-vinyl acetate, but there is more to Model M. than just this. Our process is proprietary, which makes Fashion-Flex so great for your #greatbag.
What is EVA?
EVA stands for ethylene-vinyl acetate and is a cross-linkable and -expandable material based on polyolefin. It’s also commonly known as “blown EVA.”
Is silicone used in making the bag?
No silicone is used—in fact, there are no other chemicals used to produce Model M. except for Fashion-Flex.
Is Fashion-Flex safe?
Fashion-Flex is lead- and phthalates-free. As mentioned before, no silicone is used in our manufacturing processes.

Fashion-Flex is recyclable, but not bio-degradable.
What is the carbon footprint for Model M. production?
Extremely low. Immediately from Fashion-Flex pellet to final sculpture, Great Bag Co. fabricates Model M. with an extremely low carbon footprint--lower than any other handbag in the accessories industry. A study is currently being done where we can later share an exact measurement.
Will Model M. melt if I leave it in the sun at the beach or in my car?
Model M. will not melt if left in the sun or in the car. However, she may soften while in the heat. But definitely not damage. It would take a source of direct heat in order to deform or damage the bag. For example, if you were to take a hair dryer and blow the hot air directly on the bag at the same spot for a prolonged time.
What about fading? Will Model M. fade if I leave it in the sun?
Model M. will not fade, no. Like you, we love vivid color too much.

1.40 lb. or .64 kg., if you're into the metric system.
