wicker and recycled Leather

From where do you source your materials?
Art supply, recycled pieces, flea markets and a local hardware store (they produce belts and repair bags, but also sell small leftover pieces)

What is your design inspiration & why is working with green/eco friendly products important to you? Are there Instagram accounts you find inspiring?
My design inspiration was to create a not only eco friendly - but also classic, elegant and timeless everyday crossbody - wicker bag. I love wicker, because it´s such a beautiful and natural,strong material and the recycled leather gives it a timeless and classy finish. I would love to see that everyone cares about our planet, and specially brands have a bigger audience to communicate that, that only if we produce in a sustainable, eco-friendly and fair way we have a better future. I love to create, and grow my own business but i also want to it in a good way. I follow `the basket room`par example - i appreciate there concept and work.
