Recycled


Remade USA

Shannon South founded reMade on the idea that making new and exciting accessories did not necessarily mean they had to be made of new materials. She has stayed true to her mission by fashioning used leather clothing and scraps into original accessories that give new life to what would have been waste. Using upcycled leathers ensures that each bag is a true original and although its design is structurally alike no two are the same. Each with their own serial number, purchasing a reMade USA piece is a one and only (Shannon will even use your won jacket to add to the eclusivity of the design of your choice). Sonoma, leather jacket scraps inside and out with gold zipper, $450, www.remadeusa.com
