Remade USA makes recycled leather handbags from vintage jackets and other waste materials. The company was founded in 2009 by Shannon South, a product designer by training and a minimalist at heart. She had never been a big consumer of products and found herself conflicted by the idea of adding new ones to a world that was already overflowing with stuff. After moving around several times, she started noticing the only things she was hanging on to were the ones that had meaning for her – memories of certain events, experiences or people.
All bags are made using materials sourced from the waste stream. They only make bags from discarded or no-longer-in-use materials and have three collections. Their Remade Readymade collection consists of recycled leather bags made from vintage leather that we source ourselves and studio remnants from previous projects. Their Remade to Order collection is an upcycling service where we use leather sent to us by our customers to repurpose their personal jackets into bags. These bags often carry a strong sentimental value – connected to a time, place, history, or a loved one. Lastly, their Shannon South collection is made from new leather hides that have been rejected from the furniture industry.
