The concept of a recycled leather handbag was first introduced to me when I wrote about the Novella Royal Mister Stud Bowler Bag back in August.
It was this LA-based designer that made me think of eco-friendly handbags in a whole new (and insanely creative) way. So I suppose it shouldn’t have come as a surprise to me that there would be other companies wishing to jump on the recycled leather bandwagon. Novella Royale may not have been the first designer to think of this wonderful idea, but they certainly will not be the last!
Now the only question left to ask is: Which company will it be? Well in case you haven’t guessed already, the latest company to get in on the recycled leather trend is Free People.
Introducing the Free People Recycled Leather Satchel! This lovely leather satchel is perfect for everyday use, whether you’re out shopping for the day or off to the office. I really love the clean lines and simple flap closure. Each bag in made in Canada from recycled vintage leather jackets and features hemp twill lining. I guess that means this bag is eco-friendly inside AND out! So if you’re looking for a handbag that will bring a little good karma your way, then I definitely recommend giving this beautiful handbag a second look!
The Free People Recycled Leather Satchel was designed for Free People by Ashley Watson. It measures 17″ x 17″ x 6″ and it is currently available in either Black or Cognac. Check it out at: Freepeople.com!
