Vintage collector and designer Judy Augur crafted an impeccable line of vintage bags and accessories. The 2015 collection is titled 'Als Ich Kan,' which means "best I can" in Dutch.

The extensive collection uses authentic vintage fabrics from 1930s boro, Malian Dogon indigo and pre WWII military canvases. The line also boasts Chinese brocade, Guatemalan loomed cotton and Navajo weaving constructions. These materials are upcycled to create the collection's tote, scarf, cushion and bag accessories. By using unique fabrics, Judy Augur creates vintage bags and accessories with one-of-a-kind patterns. The designer's mixed color schemes create visually interesting and artistically pleasing pieces.

These items are created under the J. Augur label, Judy Augur's 14-year-old company. Augur enjoys working with vintage materials because she believes they highlight the "timeless influence of the environment on artisans and craftspeople."
