Announcement   CHA CHA, derived from a childhood nickname, is a small company making handbags and accessories out of canvas and recycled leather.

For the past 10 years cha cha has produced thousands of lovingly designed, durable, one of a kinds handbags that have sold all over the world. Out of a small home studio handbags are designed, sewn, photographed and shipped by company owner and designer- Lori.
Amidst a world of mass produced everything, at CHA CHA I focus on working with what we already have by re-purposing some of the quality materials that are collecting dust in our closets. Working with what I have has been a practice my whole life, often out of necessity, but I have come to realize that it forces me to be a more creative designer. Every day at CHA CHA what first appears to be an out of date jacket gets transformed into a modern, fully functional handbags. Leather from CHA CHA handbags has been salvaged from old jackets, furniture and every now and them from a funky pair of 80’s leather pants. I enjoy the challenge of taking something old and making it new again, knowing that I am saving one more garment from joining our overflowing landfills. And just as importantly, I enjoy creating a designer quality handbag that you can feel good about.
Cha Cha is made in Canada.

Each cha cha bag is made up repurposed materials which means the odd scuff mark may appear. These are not imperfections but proof of a previous life. If there were to be a large scratch or mark I will state it in the description.
