I have several bags Sandy has made. Each one is beautiful, useful and wears well. In addition, Sandy is always friendly and great to work with. I rarely post reviews but I did in this case because I highly recommend Sandy and her work and shop.

I absolutely love this tote. It’s big and roomy and the fabric is thick enough that it holds lots of stuff. It’s made really beautifully!

I am impressed with how carefully this bag was made. Excellent work! The bag has a nice stiff base/bottom to it which is a nice touch, prevents the bag from sagging and losing form when carrying items. The leather is very nice and soft, making it comfortable to use. Thanks for taking the time out to recycle all these great materials and your meticulous work. Your pride in your craftsmanship shows.

Another gorgeous bag from Sandy!! Made to last a lifetime and when I told her I needed it in one day because it was a gift for my daughter-she got it to me!! I couldn't be happier!!

This is terrific! It is not, however, as terrific as Sandy!!! She's now working on making me a custom bag - a task I would trust with no one else.

This BAG!!! I literally searched for months to find the bag that would fit my body and my lifestyle and this is definitely the one! It's roomy, it's soft, the suede is thick and it looks incredible. It holds everything I need which is a lot -laptop, notebooks, pair of flip flops, my lunch, etc! Sometimes I put my purse inside and there is still room! My bag arrived quickly and the craftsmanship is impeccable and durable, which is great because I want it to last forever and I know it will. I guarantee if you ever run it to me, this bag will be draped across my shoulder. Get one...it's so worth the investment.

Handcrafted Leather and Canvas Bags
Uptown Redesigns is an individually owned and operated design studio based in Florida that produces high-quality handcrafted bags with select vintage and new materials. Owner and designer Sandy Philpott draws on inspirations from the past and present, including life at the beach in Florida to design and develop each unique piece.
Originally established as an outlet to bring her creative visions to life by utilizing only existing materials (due to limited start-up funding and self-taught leatherworking skills), the business slowly and organically grew as clients discovered Sandy’s unique talents to transform vintage garments into new bags to suit their current needs. Clients enjoy shopping Sandy’s continually rotating boutique collection of original designs, and also submit their own discarded garments for specially-ordered custom designs.
After more than 10 years of designing and developing upcycled leather bags from outdated leather garments, Sandy recently expanded her line to also include small, limited-edition batches of durable waxed and stone-washed canvas bags.
Bags created with used/upcycled materials may show signs of distress and wear. These elements were carefully integrated to add character to the finished piece and should not detract from the overall quality or durability of the bag. Please note that these bags may have imperfections and irregularities, as they are all individually designed and created one at a time.
Bags created with canvas are composed of all new materials. However, such materials were carefully selected to mimic the look and feel of vintage leathers, and such will also age and show distress, wear, and patina over time. In particular, the waxed canvas is designed to show such distressing and will continue to age with character and soul with continued use. These bags are also designed and handmade by Uptown Redesigns.
Clients should carefully review all photos and descriptions about such details related to the condition of the materials before making a purchase to ensure understanding of the final product.
