|Shannon South is multi-disciplinary designer making leather handbags rooted in the principles of environmental mindfulness and ethical manufacturing. Her eponymous line, that is manufactured in NYC, uses remnant luxury leather from the furniture industry. She also offers a custom ‘leather jacket-to-bag’ transformation service under the name Remade USA, where she hand-makes special order bags in her Brooklyn Navy Yard studio.
Striving to craft beautiful leather handbags by obsessing about their quality and durability, Shannon’s bags are well designed and functional, focusing on simple, clean, classic design that can be used every day and stand the test of time. She wishes for her designs to become wardrobe staples for her customers- something they will continue to use season after season, year round.
*Shannon’s bags have sold at Barneys NY and other stores around the US. She has shown at Capsule, Designers & Agents, at the NY International Gift Fair and has also been part of The Green Shows presentation at Lincoln Center Fashion Week. Shannon has been written up in Fast Company, LA Times, Style.com, Treehugger, and others. She also has won Daily Candy’s Sweetest Thing award.
We are always looking for great interns to work in the studio. Please contact us with your resume if you are interested.
