Recycled Leather Jacket into Bag - Elvis & Kresse

The Story of One Leather Jacket

March 23, 2018

This is a story of second chances. And it is a joy to share because everything worked out for the best. If you want to know why we do what we do, and why we treasure each tiny scrap of material that we rescue, watch this video.

 

 

This wasn't a commission, this became a really wonderful set of Christmas presents for our entire family. We are sharing this story because we hope it gives you the idea that, once anything has been created and has lived their first full life, materials have a lot more to give before they are pulped, down-cycled, landfilled or incinterated.

When we shared this video with Kresse's brother, the hero of this story, his comments were as follows, 'if this doesn't make people recycle, nothing will.' We hope it works.

Love, 

Elvis & Kresse
