Medium sized boho slouchy leather bag made from a vintage jacket... Amazing color on this bag! This leather is glossy and durable. There are two slip in front pockets from the original jacket that are more for decoration than actual use, but a back zipper pocket is great for quick storage of your keys, cell phone, etc. Comes with a cute detachable tassel. It's a great bag to tote around your essentials.

► The bag has a denim lining with 2 inside pockets (one patch and one zipper pocket) to keep your small items organized.

► Two strap length options: 23" and 41". Both are detachable. I always like to use the shorter one and have the longer one dangle down. The longer one can be worn messenger style. Be sure to check measurements to make sure it'll fit your body type.

► This bag is ONE OF A KIND. Because each bag uses vintage leather, I can only recreate the style with different material. Because of this you are getting a bag that is uniquely yours :)

► The process of making each bag first starts with sourcing the materials. I visit several different places on a weekly basis to find the right jackets and other materials used to create each bag. Then, the vintage leather jackets are cut apart and pieced together in such a way to salvage great original details in to new Hoakon/Helga bag designs.

► I try to use as many upcycled components as I can in each bag, including the linings, and any exterior fabrics used. Every bag is One-of-a-kind because of the vintage materials used. You may see small imperfections and wearing caused from the original jacket. This is part of the charm of the designs and adds to the fact that your bag has a history previous to you owning it! It's a great way to help to support sustainable approaches.

► Every bag is handmade by me, in my studio, in Alberta, Canada :)

► All purchases are sent out on Mondays.

► All shipping is done through Canada Post with a standard delivery. This means that it will take approximately 6 -18 business days within North America (depending on where you are from) but can sometimes take longer getting stuck in customs. I tend to get lots of emails saying that the parcel is taking longer than the 12 days... so expect it to take an extra week or two. All bag purchases to Canada and the USA are sent with a tracking number which can be tracked through canadapost.ca. Parcels sent to anywhere else do not have a tracking number can take 4-6 weeks to arrive. Hoakon/Helga is not responsible for any lost or damaged items in the mail.
