Shannon South and reMade USA Recycled Leather Handbags
Brooklyn NY 11201
Born in Miami and raised in the couture gown industry, Shannon South designed and constructed her first handbag in 1995. She has been around sewing machines since she was a child, teaching herself to sew by patching scraps of satin together in an effort to make a dress. Throughout college, she was very involved in the club scene, crafting fabulous new outfits weekly.
The characteristics that guide all of Shannon's work is that it be beautiful, soulful, well-crafted, made locally, and have the tiniest footprint possible.
There is so much perfectly usable waste in the United States. The primary material that she uses is discarded leather. It is resilient, it lasts, and the quality beautifully worn leather gives to a newly made bag cannot be replicated. It has a sense of history, yet is still new.
