Two Local Artists Create Stunning Upcycled Leather Bags
Including: Clutches, Purses, Pouches, Totes, & Innovative Wrist Wallets …all available at k2 Studio!
Bonjour loyal followers! This is Lorna, resident writer & blogger for the k2 crew. This week our Mountain Chic Feature highlights local leather craftsmen. k2 Studio is home to not just one, but two designers who use upcycled leather to create gorgeous handbags, totes, clutches, wallets, & more.
Both artists show individualistic and innovative designs, with signatures featured on the interiors of their work. The upcycled leathers chosen by each craftsman are unique, varying in color, texture, and origin. Individual work includes eclectic stitching, gorgeous chain, as well as beautiful hand-selected pieces of crocodile, buffalo, and filagree leathers. The true beauty of these accessories is that they are guilt-free! The materials used are recycled; each artist creates their work by salvaging high-grade leather from larger-scale manufacturing in the area.
My personal favorite item is featured below. It’s not exactly a clutch, more what I’d call a “wrist wallet,” and it’s perfect for the modern girl-on-the-go. This designer used her creativity to design this innovative purse for a friend who hates carrying large bags, but is always losing her wallet.
Come by k2 Studio to get your next fabulous accessory, and view these beautiful locally-crafted leather bags for yourself.
