west village bag - grey snakeskin
Every piece is made from vintage fabrics dating 1930-1999. Ruby, the founder, sources these personally using her lifelong knowledge. These leftover pieces of fabric are so small that other brands would never bother to use them. Ruby, the founder says "I understand why— it's a super time-intensive business model. I am always spending way too much time negotiating prices, inspecting fabrics' condition, and giving my seamstress complex instructions about which remnants are for which styles"
This product is made with upcycled materials, meaning it's creation has transformed by-products, waste materials, useless, or unwanted products into something new, with better quality and higher environmental value
Ethically and locally made in NY by the brand's legendary seamstress Cici
