Bag some eco style!

How amazing are these gorgeous bags?  Designer Ashley Watson constructs bags, wallets and other accessories using the recycled leather from old vintage leather jackets that she finds in thrift stores.  What a chic green idea!

 I especially love the emerald suede messenger-style bag!  I may have to put it on my wish list.

What's your favourite?
