The inspiration for the vintage creation artisan range of bags is drawn from maker grandparents. Cecil, who was a boot mender, stored his leather off-cuts to use them on smaller jobs; while Jenny, a dress- and pattern-maker, put every piece of leftover fabric aside to use later.
Vintage creation bags follow in the footsteps of Cecil and Jenny's 'save and reuse' ethos. Italian leather is cut and joined to make unique leather bags, with both colour and grain variations turned into distinctive features. Saved fabric and leather off-cuts are incorporated into other bags and their linings, supporting sustainability of natural leather resources coupled with minimal wastage.
Vintage creation bags are friendly to both their owners and the environment. Italian upholstery leather that complies with the EU's strict regulations concerning dyes and tanning processes is used to create the bag. Fabric components for all inside pockets are sewn from 100% waterproof canvas. The durable Italian leather is complemented with a range of interchangeable vibrant fabric and leather panels.
Vintage creation's range of highly original, convertible leather bags are crafted by hand in the Blue Mountains NSW. Every bag is unique and can be worn as a shoulder bag, sling bag, backpack, long handbag or short handbag. With a range of leather and contrasting fabric panels, one bag becomes many bags, each with its own unique appearance.
