Designer - Ashley Watson

Once upon a time, there was a little sewing machine toting fairy named ashley watson that would turn monstrosities that I can only imagine look like this:

into perfect purses and bags like these:

Each bag is handcrafted and one-of-a-kind, made from the recycled leather of gently worn jackets purchased from charity thrift stores. I love that the bags carry so many of the details from the jackets they once were! (I just want to know what they do with all the leftover shoulderpads once they rip them from the jackets.)

San Francsicans can get their hands on one at the Candystore Collective.
