BEEN is a brand that is currently being funded on Kickstarter and one that offers gorgeous collections of fully recycled leather handbags. Each fashion-forward accessory is crafted in a small workshop in East London by artisans who pay extreme attention to detail and style, as well as harbor a deep passion for environmental sustainability.

The materials used to make the recycled leather handbags are ones "that would otherwise end up in a landfill." The exterior of the product transitions from leather offcuts to fine useable fibers to recycled leather, while the interior lining begins with used bottles that are transformed into plastic flakes to make recycled polyester.

With a well-meaning business model that is dedicated to reducing waste and carbon footprints, BEEN's recycled leather handbags are fully funded with just under two more weeks to go.
