► A brand new style for spring! The Letter Carrier is similar to The Market Tote but comes with a long messenger strap! A lovely leather tote bag made from a vintage leather jacket. This leather is lovely and glossy with great seam details. You get two deep front pockets that zipper closed along with a smaller snap pocket for your little things like lip balm on the front. Lots of room for quick access to keys, train pass etc. This is a great bag to tote around your everyday essentials. A classic tote style with a unique one-of-a-kind twist, not to mention that it hangs beautifully. It has the perfect slouch!

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

► 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 :)
