It’s in the Bag


Whoever said being eco meant sacrificing style never saw Ashley Watson’s line of handcrafted bags. The Vancouver-based designer uses leather purchased from thrift stores to craft soft and sturdy sacks that utilize the original seams and pockets, and pay homage to their origins as now-passé jackets and pants. Chic-yet-casual mid-sized purses work well for a night on the town or a day of shopping, and wallets are the perfect blend of panache and professionalism. Since every tote is a one-of-a-kind creation, you can be sure that your style stays truly original. –Sarah Parsons
