BAGS FROM RECYCLED LEATHER

design squish blog

Recently I started making my own bags from recycled leather and reused materials. Image above is the first bag I made out of small ripped leather purse and old leather skirt.  I added leather material from old skirt to the bottom of the purse.  The image below is a bag I made from ripped fake leather bag I actually found in the garbage. I fixed the bag I found in the garbage and sewed on white silk flowers that came from old jacket.

Thanks for sharing. I love these bags, especially the green one, and the prices are incredibly fair, given how outrageous bag prices have become... Human Growth Hormone control panel enclosures

Wow! I am really digging these gorgeous handmade recycled leather bags from Valhalla Brooklyn's Etsy store! I particularly love the red one above...a perfect carry-on bag for weekenders. Love. offshorejobs, hvidevarer

A lot of people have asked me for my take on leather goods, so I just thought I would share. I had bought a used, designer suede bag from a thrift store a few years back, but every time I went to wore it, I felt really bad about it. So, I gave it away. Horoskop Pashmina
