old bag

Shannon South is brilliant! She makes lovely handbags out of recycled leather jackets and lines them with old scarves.

Not only is this a great idea in terms of being responsible and green, it's also wonderful because the bags have that soft, broken-in feel of old leather.

Sadly, all of the one of a kind bags seem to be sold out at the moment, but if you write to her, she'll let you know when a similar one becomes available.
check them out at reMade USA.
