My name is Stephany Childers and I am an independent designer from Eugene, Oregon who started rebychandbags.com a few years ago on etsy. I wanted my own way of recycling that would end in something tangible and beautiful. Finding old treasures whether it be fabric or notions from a whole other era and creating something new and fresh is awesome. To me just knowing that a grandma's fabric is lining one of my bags is really cool; a walking story. It didn't come from a factory but had a whole life prior to becoming a lining.
So, to make the story short-
I design leather handbags in an environmentally conscious way by using scrap leather as well as fabrics and notions from estate sales and second hand. This makes each bag truly unique and original. And oh so green!!
