Bag from recycled leather
Choosing between what is good for the animals vs what is good for the enviroment can be tricky. Fake leather is great cus it means no animal got killed for it but it is made from unnatural chemicals and therefor takes time to be made into compost the day it breaks or you no longer want to use it. Leater however is long lasting and looks better after long use. It does not harm the enviroment but of corse the animal.
So this is my inbetween solution!
Recycled and reused leather bought secondhand!
I really hate the fur industry and would never go out and buy a new fur coat for myself. However I have a coat from my mother that she bought when she was in her 30´s. I have not used it yet but I consider re-desiging it to stop it going to waste in the attic.
I saved the pockets that was on the coat and lined the bag with blue velvet. There is also enough leather still to make 2 more bags in a slightly smaller size :)
