Retro Repurposed Purses

The Original Flea Bag is Made Up of Old Leather Material for a Mod Look

— November 5, 2013 — Eco
There is a more responsible approach to wearing leather, and the Original Flea Bag is it. Parts of this sophisticated handbag have been made with repurposed leather, giving the chic and contemporary accessory a vintage and more ethical identity. The Grey Felt Fleabag has been carefully fashioned with heather felted sheep's wool, Italian black leather and accents of bright blue animal hide to buckle it shut.

The classic shoulder bag gently flares in width towards the top; meanwhile, gently narrowing in depth. Its predominantly pale appearance makes it perfect for casual and formal occasions, and it really highlights the hand-written label on the front that indicates the edition number. The Original Flea Bag in grey further impresses with plenty of practical pockets inside of it.
Trend Themes
1. Sustainable Fashion - Creating accessories with repurposed leather presents an opportunity for the fashion industry to promote sustainability and ethical practices.
2. Vintage-inspired Design - The use of repurposed materials in creating retro-style purses opens up a trend for vintage-inspired designs with a modern twist.
3. Socially Conscious Accessories - The Original Flea Bag showcases the trend of consumers seeking accessories that reflect their desire for ethical, responsible fashion choices.
Industry Implications
1. Fashion - The fashion industry can capitalize on the demand for sustainable and vintage-inspired accessories by incorporating repurposed materials and retro designs into their product lines.
2. Sustainability - The trend of repurposing materials, like leather, for fashion accessories offers an opportunity for the sustainability industry to promote circular economy practices and waste reduction.
3. Ethical Fashion - The emergence of socially conscious accessories creates a market for ethical fashion brands to offer consumers products that align with their values and promote responsible consumption.
