Ashley Watson Bags are in!

For those of you not familiar with these increasingly hard-to-come-by handbags, Vancouver B.C.-based Ashley Watson, herself, reconstructs these handbags from vintage leather jackets. Each one is one of a kind (Ashley incorporates the jacket's pockets and seams into the new bag) and made of buttery soft, guilt-free leather. We were pretty impressed both by the quality and the environmentally sound logic behind these bags. And equally important, they're just pretty.

We will post pictures and prices on the blog soon while our website is being completed. Get in touch with us if you'd like to pre-purchase one! We received the Warbler bag ($310), pictured first, in a rich cobalt blue and the Junco bag ($310), also pictured, in a gorgeous dark reddish-brown hue. Oh, and we have a few wallets, too.
