Ashley Watson Recycled Leather Bags

Ashley Watson is a Vancouver based designer that handcrafts leather bags and accessories using only recycled material. She searches through thrift stores for soft and supple leather, especially old leather jackets which will be transformed by her skilful hands into chic accessories. Every design is one of a kind, sophisticated and innovative, as Ashley is adding into each bag or wallet original details such as pockets, buttons and seams.
