Old, used things are not neccessarily useless.

My mom taught me to take a good care about the animals and environment. She told me not to waste water, energy and food. She told that all the food can be eaten by hungry animals and that we can keep bread crumbs to give it to the birds during the winther time.
There have always been animals aroud me, a homeless cat or a dog, or even small birds, could find some food and a shelter at our home and become a member of our family.
When I came to Denmark I was shocked about all the waste. I could see people changing clothes, toys and other goods as often as I never experienced before in my life. So I decided to focus on the way I live and show my family, friends and everybody else, that all those "old" things are not useless. I began to sew shopping bags out of old bedsheets, so that we could use them in stead of buying and throwing all those plastic bags. After a while my bags changed to be sewn out of old denim trousers and some of them became real art pieces.
One day I saw a cheap suede jacket at the local second hand shop and I bought it. I wanted to try to make a bag out of it. I made a huge shopper bag and linned it with an old vintage table cloth. It was a hit! :-D Everyone wanted my bag :-) and they loved the idea of reusing an old jacket :-)
Today I still sew my bags :-) and I love it! I feel I have so many ideas that I wonder if I ever can make them come true :-)
And I still help animals, I have given to homeless cats a home and feed birds during the winther. I do not throw food. And I hope that we can save a lot of innocent animals from being killed for leather, fur and meat.

    I love to sew bags, I love to create things out of something that's no longer in use. All my bags are unique as I never make two that looks same. You can be sure that no one in the world owns a bag like yours. Enjoy!

Welcome to my shop! I am really glad you are here.

Please take a look at my bags.
They are all handmade with love and are sustainable and environment friendly.

Each bag have a history, each is unique and unrepeatable.

Each one is made by me, I do not have any emplyees.

I pick jackets, fabrics and all accessories by myself. And then I sew each bag taking care for all those details I want to keep.
I sew my bags on the professional sewing mashine for leather. I use strong threads and quality hardware.
I try to make each bag as much recycled as possible, that's why I always try to reuse zippers if possible.

The fabric I use for linning are small remnants not longer for sale. If I use a pair of jeans trousers, a jacket or another piece of cloths, they are always in mint condition but usually outdated.

It makes each bag totally unik and unrepeatable.

Should you have a jacket by yourself which you would like to transform to a unique bag, just drop me a line.

Should you have any other question just drop me a message and I will gladly answer.
