About vintagecreationbags and Leather Bags

Date Posted:21 February 2019 



My journey to designing and creating leather bags was inspired by my maker grandparents: Cecil, a boot mender and Jenny, a dress and pattern-maker. They both worked from a home with a shop front, earning an income through the depression years. Today, my products are totally hand made in Australia, sewn from start to finish by just one person in my solar powered studio.

Sustainable Leather Bags

I support initiatives to minimise carbon waste through the use of carbon neutral power produced by solar panels in my studio. I use all leather off-cuts in my bags to produce distinctive and individual leather bags, leather/canvas satchels, purses and cross body sling bags, while supporting sustainability of natural leather resources with minimal wastage.

Versatile Leather Bags

All linings and pockets are sewn from canvas and water resistant polyester. The leather satchels, totes, cross body and backpack bags can be worn as shoulder bag, cross body bag and backpack with a range of interchangeable vibrant fabric panels for colour and pattern, as well as leather panels for a sophisticated look.

Convertible Leather Bags 

Vintage creation's range of convertible leather bags are hand cut and sewn in Australia in my studio from responsibly processed leather. Every leather bag design can be worn as a leather shoulder bag, sling bag, backpack, tote or hand bag.

Unique Leather Bags

With a range of leather and contrasting fabric panels, one bag becomes many bags, each with its own unique appearance. I print my own fabric from digital images and make fabric panels for each bag, providing a range of panel choices that ensure you get a bag that looks like no other.
