Recycled Leather


Leather apparel sourced from a charitable thrift shop was deconstructed and then given a second life in my studio, transformed into this one-of-a-kind satchel.  


I'll be keeping my eye out for leather treasures to repurpose on my future excursions to thrift shops and consignment shops!

This is such a good idea and very nice looking. I love your designs.

I can't help but wonder how much Anni "helps". :)

Lucy- When I first started sewing on a regular basis Anni like to help in the studio alot. She especially loved rearranging the spools of thread.
Now she is just an consultant. She comes by occasionally just to check on things and make sure all is going smoothly and then returns to her favorite napping spot. :)

Great work, I love the colour of this leather and seam in the back gives the charm of repurposed material.
Hugs to Anni :)
