I am one maker making one item at a time with my own two hands

Recycling is a very important part of my design philosophy and my life. I'm committed to using no new animal products, so all of the leather and fur I use has lived a previous life as another garment, whether it be a coat, skirt or pair of pants. I enjoy sourcing the materials and deciding which details from the original garment to keep as much as I enjoy actually making each bag. Because each bag is made from recycled materials it's already got a lot of character and is totally unique. All items are handmade solely by me in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
