I purchased this bag as a gift for my husband who is a "car guy" looking to carry around a new work laptop. He loves the red stitching and the small details, especially the tag inside the bag showing the make/model/VIN of the vehicle that the materials came from. Gorgeous product.

Fantastic bag! I've received so many compliments already and everyone loves that it's made of materials that would have potentially otherwise gone to landfill (as do I). The workmanship is beautiful and the bag looks like it's been made to last a lifetime. So glad I made this purchase!

Really lovely item. Thank you!
One of a kind pieces handmade from recycled materials in Canada
We are an independent Canadian design studio making bags and accessories from recycled materials since 2008. All the bags and accessories are made by us in our studio on the Mississippi River in Canada!
We are working mainly with reclaimed automotive materials like car seat leather, seat belts and buckles. We source all the materials in car wrecking yards in Ontario and NY. (You can not imagine how much fun it is ;-) Than the material gets cleaned before we finally can sew with it. Because of the nature of the material, all our pieces appear a little different - they are one offs.
We also have created a bag line working with reused leather airplane seat covers from Alaska Airlines. Whatever project comes and includes recycled materials, we are up to.
How it all started? That's a long story. Ok, it was a very hot night in Campeche - Mexico during the municipal election period in 2007. At one point I ended up with one of the vinyl election banners in my hand .... and so on ;-)
