VANCOUVER BASED DESIGNER ASHLEY WATSON
and her staff handcraft her one-of-a-kind leather products using exclusively recycled material. She began designing handbags with recycled leather in early 2005, inspired by the original features of soft and gently worn jackets purchased from charity thrift stores. She ultimately incorporates these features, such as pockets and seams, into each unique bag or wallet design.
With an extensive background in studio art, Ashley brings an innovative and environmentally sound approach to fashion design, creating products that are practical, sophisticated, and, above all, distinctive.
Ashley Watson Recycled Leather bags and wallets are sold in stores across North America, and are now available in select stores in Europe, Asia and Australia.
