Profession / role: eco-bag designer/manufacturer
Company / organisation: Lara D’ handcrafted bags
Lara D’ always had an attraction to beautiful textiles, buttons and vintage, rummaging in charity/thrift store and flea markets and car boot sales for the next treasures is one of her favourite past times. With a creative eye , she began to put together upcycled totes/bags from fabric remnants and textiles. Each bag is unique and fully reversible, one bag can be constructed from once a bedspread, a pair of once loved denim jeans, a belt as handles. another can be a reincarnation of a duvet cover, deluxe fabric swatches remnants and exquisite vintage buttons….. Often she painstakingly chosen textiles that complement each other ,other times that totally contrast, depends on the mood of the day…..
Each bag is an ‘one off’ fully reversible and besides being attractive it is practical and versatile and full of uses : Shopper, overnighter, baby bag , gym bag, and the list goes on…
