Olivia Upcycled Leather Basket Bag
The Olivia Upcycled Leather Basket Bag has been a labour of love from the moment we found the sides in a thrift store a few months ago. The sides are made from vintage placemats that are about half an inch thick and very sturdy. The base is a piece of shiny black recycled leather taken from a skirt we thrifted and upcycled. This bag is entirely hand sewn with an extra thick upholstery thread to ensure it lives for a very long time. The handles have a drop of about 13 inches and will fit comfortably on even larger arms (it fits mine and and I wear a 5x) but still looks cute when carried by hand. We chose to use a double layered cotton twill tape for the handles to eliminate the use of polyester and also provide extra strength. The cotton also helps the handles stay in place so the bag is not slipping off your shoulders all the time.
