Three new bags were added to the shop today made from leather apparel that was deconstructed and given a second life in my studio. These bags are actually all made from one coat I purchased at a thrift store back in New York. I enjoyed taking it apart and piecing it back together like a puzzle.
For future projects I plan to experiment even more on incorporating pockets and other features already on the apparel to my bag designs. I already have plans for another two jackets that I scored today. Can't wait to get started!
