My Paper Bag

February 25, 2009

I’m completely smitten with Ramon Middelkoop leather bag that was designed to look like a paper bag. It can be purchased through goodforall …. which unfortunantly is not in Eenglish.

Vintage Belt Floor Mat

September 2, 2008

This handsome, handmade floor mat, by Inghua Ting, is made of artfully assembled vintage leather belts that have been rescued on their way from waist to waste. Its rich tones, textures, and tread-friendly patina evoke the look of a wonderfully worn wood floor, albeit with a decidedly warmer under-foot feel. Each Vintage Belt Floor Mat is a one-of-a-kind creation, and as such, colors and characteristics will vary slightly from those pictured.

MAKR

July 14, 2008

 

These wallets by Makr, a small carry goods company founded and run by designer Jason Gregory, are laser-etched on leather, yet hand sewn. They are all limited edition

Their initial offering of carry goods includes wallets, cardholders and pouches. Expect in the coming months, a variety of bags, totes and camera cases.

These gorgeous leather jackets are lined with salvaged leathers and fabrics from vintage car seats. The Platinum Dirt VIN Jackets are made to order and custom-fit by Dustin Page, a passionate connoisseur of cars himself. He has used the old leathers to create brand new, retro-cut, distressed leather jackets and gathered hood-ornaments to act as zipper pulls.
