Designer Creates Bags From Recycled Leather Jackets
Globe-trotter, former design student, and now eco-friendly designer- you could say San Francisco dweller Shannon South has worn a lot of hats. This one-time New Yorker is the creative mastermind behind reMade USA, a new line of bags and accessories made entirely from unusual recycled materials like leather jackets and is inspired by “a deep appreciation for things have been cultivated by hand– be it tomatoes from a garden, a piece of wood from a salvage yard…”
The best part about reMade USA is that each product is one of a kind and comes with the warning:
“There are no others like it. There never will be. If you choose to buy it, you will be the owner of a unique bag, there’s absolutely no chance of you bumping into someone who has the same exact one. However, if you like this bag and it’s no longer available for purchase, please contact us and we will notify you when a similarish model becomes available.”
To move beyond novelty activations and one-time gimmicks, PSFK equips marketers with the insights, templates and analytics to develop high-reach campaigns that meet consumers in the moment, collect and build upon experiential data, and build scale through content creation.
