Gallery: ASHLEY WATSON: Eco-chic bags from recycled leather jackets

    wow, really really lovely. she clearly is an artist with a great eye. judging by the colors and details, it would seem that many of the jackets may never have been fashionably wearable, and extremely dated. as purses designed with an artist’s touch, they will never go out of style, and the already-processed materials won’t be going to waste.
