I split my time working both in my studio and at home, always carrying a lot of stuff back an forth – in several bags. What I really needed was a giant bag to transport everything, so I came up with this tote. Inspired by a painter I saw on the street whose jeans were covered with smears and drippings, I decided to experiment. This is the result and it turned out to be the perfect beach bag and farmers market tote. I use this bag all the time.
This canvas bag has one interior pocket and sturdy leather straps attached with super strong copper rivets.
I just wanted to post a note that yes, I am still making custom leather bags from used leather jackets! I’ve been pretty busy lately working on custom orders and have not been able to get to all of my emails. Please be patient if that is you – I will get back to you very soon!
Remade USA is my leather jacket to bag transformation service. These bags are handmade by me, and made to order using the jackets that my customers send me. These leather jackets usually have special meaning to them and I create beautiful, new and useful bags from them.
These bags make beautiful gifts and keepsakes that that will be cherished. (I was super busy during the holidays!) They are awesome gifts with meaning for the person who appreciates more thoughtful things that they will want to hold on to.
If you are interested in this service, please send me a note, along with a photo of your jacket to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you more info – such as prices and timing.
I’ll be selling bags at the Textile Art Center’s Holiday Market. Please stop by!
