We are so excited to launch the second part of our Sustainable Vintage Collection. These convertible belt bags are our most sustainable bags ever and as always, are completely vegan and made locally and sustainably in Los Angeles.
What exactly makes a bag sustainable? Well, when designing our bags with regard to sustainability, we took three things into consideration: the materials we sourced, it's functionality (aka how many times you can wear it), and where it's made.
WHAT IS IT MADE OF?
All three of our new convertible belt bags that are part of this collection are made with an eco-suede composed of 88% recycled plastic bottles and upcycled, vintage hand-embroidered hemp. They are also lined with organic cotton.
HOW MANY WEARS?
Many sustainability experts contend that you should curate your closet based on the idea of cost-per-wear. Cost-per-wear essentially measures the cost of a garment based on the amount of times you wear it. Essentially, the idea is that the value of an article of clothing or accessory is inherently more valuable the longer it lasts (which means higher quality) and the more times you are able to wear it.
Our convertible belt bags are designed to be your go-to bag, perfect for all and any occasions. They come with both a belt and crossbody chain, so you can wear them one of three ways: as a fanny pack, crossbody bag, or remove the belt/chain entirely to wear as a clutch. If you're like me and wear yours everyday, the cost of the bag is much less than $1 a day, depending on which style you purchase.
WHERE IS IT MADE?
As always, all of our bags are made locally and sustainably in Los Angeles by local craftsmen who are really amazing and skilled at their craft. We are so proud to have our bags made locally and to have the honor of knowing the craftspeople that spend so much time with our bags.
Our new convertible belt bags come in three different colors: biscuit, saddle, and pomegranate. In honor of our new launch, these bags will be on pre-sale through Sunday for 20% off. Since these bags are made with limited edition vintage fabrics, we only have a select number of each style until they're sold out.
