Oh wow oh wow. How amazing are these leather bags created by Shannon South for reMade USA? Wanna know a little secret? These lovely gems were all made from second hand leather jackets and lined with recycled cotton! Shannon believes in designing products that reuse materials and are locally made. As she says, "why create yet another product to add to the gazillion already on this planet!" Yes! Yes! Wanna know another secret? If you so happen to have an old leather jacket lying around your house or found one of your mom's old leather bombers circa 1978...you know, the shoulder pads, the elastic waist bottoms, don't forget the lovely patchwork design...you can send it in to reMade USA and choose the style you like and da da da DAAAA, a fabulous new/old upcycled leather bag just for you! Give your dusty old jackets a second chance and head over to reMade USA for more info. Happy Thursday everyone!
