  1. So much that is so wrong with this.
    Like, what species of armadillo (there are 21 living) is this?
    What is the sourcing (some of the Central American species are “at risk”)?

    Then, the fundamental problem of that armadillo hide does not “tan” into proper “leather” (it’s more taxidermy, stabilization, not tanning).

    Then, of course, is the squick of using a hollowed-out mammal as a clutch.

  2. Dasypus novemcintus, nine bands, few natural predators, just more kitsch.

    Sigh, so, maybe Armadillo Purse is the Indie-punk Seatbelts cover band?

    “I want to ho home to the nine-banded purse” is not going to improve the lyrics to London Homesick Blues.
