Re-using a leather jacket is a great way to give new purpose for a piece you already have, but no longer wear. You would also same some cash on raw materials - as you already have the leather, possibly zipper too, etc...
If you have a jacket - men's or women's, old or kind of old, torn, discoloured - anything - but are not quite ready to get rid of it (cos its leather!) - drop us a line. Perhaps we could build a bag that you will love and wear again. Our design or yours - the design will have to be assessed based on the characteristics of your leather, and the size of the coat.
Below are the "Befores" - the pictures of the designer, adorned in some seriously 80's and 90's leathers and an odd fur coat... Check back in a few weeks for the "Afters"...
|Lime green ultrasuede|
|Beige - can almost button it up!|
|Fur - wears me well... but the sleeves are 2.5/4 unfortunately|
|Ultra poofy - will fit two of me in one jacket!|
|The sleeves are cut for petite... man|
|Now, that's a power shoulder! - but its Lambskin!!!|
|Bomber - but it came in an amazing grey shade...|
|More bombers - amazing unfinished Calf skin...|
|Details can be fab!..|
|Yep, those were the times....|
