ABSOLUTELY breathtaking! Hard to believe this handbag is made from a recycled leather jacket! The interior of this bag is the star of the show with TONS of pockets and a secure place for every little thing. Kortes Handbags left no stone unturned when designing and constructing this bag. The attention to detail is remarkable! Thank you.

Additional policies and FAQs
We use recycled materials on many of our handbags that may show some wear and adds character. Denise Kortes chooses leather that has good texture and color and spends multiple hours deconstructing, designing, sewing and finishing her creations.
All of Denise's upcycled bags are one of a kind and totally unique. She does NOT use a pattern for any of her upcycled leather bags. No one bag can ever be recreated exactly.
