Modern and vintage, brought together by whimsy and the near-obsessive love of cutting obsolete things into a bunch of pieces and making something beautiful, useful and on-trend – fondly known around here as upcycling. Just when it seems like that old leather garment is a goner - destined for the trash heap or the black hole where the Salvation Army sends things they can’t sell - we bring it back to life!

Payment
Payment via Paypal only at this time.
Shipping
Our bags are sent by first class mail. We include delivery confirmation but if you’d like to insure it, upgrade to priority or send it via something other than the USPS, please convo me before you buy so I can tell you the cost of the upgraded delivery and add the additional costs to the listing.
Refunds and Exchanges
Because our bags are custom and one of a kind, for now all sales are final. Our bags are made from recycled and upcycled materials and therefore may lack that “brand new” look and smell you enjoy when you buy something from Neiman Marcus (we do, on the other hand, offer things at accessible prices). Please note that if a bag that we have listed has defects, we will note that in the listing and the price will reflect that defect.
Additional policies and FAQs
GENERAL INFO and FAQs

GENERAL

-> Why do your purses all look different?
Put simply, we let the original garment dictate the size, orientation, zipper, interior and exterior pockets and details. We strive to make the biggest, most fabulous and original bags we can from everything we can get our hands on.

-> I ordered two bags at the same time and was surprised to see that they were not at all the same as each other. I bought them as gifts as was hoping they would be similar to each other .
Every single one of these babies is made by hand from totally different and random garments and surplus fabrics. Like snowflakes, no two will ever be alike, ever.

-> Do you have another method of payment besides Paypal?
Not at this time.

-> Why do you call your bags “up-cycled”?
Because every bit of the materials used to make your bag is reused or repurposed in some way. Some of the trim may be new or almost new (from our stash!) but a huge percentage is being up-cycled…. Made better vs. simply reused or recycled or repurposed.

-> Where do you get material for the clutches?
When we started, it was all from the archive of clothes we’d been storing away. Now, we buy locally. Sometimes people give us things they don’t need anymore. In other words, it’s a work in progress.
-> Do you gift wrap?
Absolutely. Our signature gift wrap is complimentary.

-> How are your bags packaged?
Our bags are packaged in a padded mailer and sent using USPS first class mail with delivery confirmation. If you buy more than one bag, I will usually ship them separately.

-> Do you insure your shipments.
Insurance is not included. If you would like to add this, please let me know so I can accommodate you and adjust the price to reflect additional service.

-> How big are your bags?
Every bag is a different size. Every single one. Check the listing to see the exact size of the bag you want to purchase.

➢ Do you make custom bags?
