Keepsake Bags

Worn with love -- Re-purposed with love

Before you donate the outdated leather coat that is gathering dust in your closet, consider contacting me about the possibility of having a new bag made from that old coat. ReFind Originals offers a custom-design service on a limited basis. I can transform your garment into a signature accessory for you, or I can create a stunning unique gift for a friend or family member that will be a truly valued keepsake.

ReFind Originals strives to create a beautiful work-of-art handbag by letting the original leather product speak for itself and help shape the new handbag. By creating a personalized handbag for you, I want to keep your leather garment's history alive by refashioning it into a useful piece of art that you will treasure for years to come.

There are inside pockets, and the strap is detachable as well as adjustable. The color of the leather back will vary, but it will coordinate nicely with the front image. Brass hardware completes the look of these stunning bags. Please Contact Anita for Availability and Ordering Time.

About Anita and ReFind Originals

“I love being in the atmosphere of a thrift or vintage store. I feel at home there. The idea of taking an old discarded item from a 'junk' store and giving it new purpose is what really inspires me. I enjoy incorporating pockets, seams, colors, and even the imperfections into each design!" —Anita Hopper

Our Story

ReFind Originals' creator, Anita Hopper, has combined her love of sewing with her interest in upcycling by repurposing outdated leather apparel and upholstery to make environmentally friendly handbags and accessories. Each product is completely unique. The pockets and details on each bag are incorporated from the original garment into the design of the bag. There may (and probably will) be irregularities in the leather due to its secondhand nature, but we believe that this only enhances the character of each piece. You will find a wide variety of colors in our bags and accessories, but we cannot guarantee specific colors due to the fact that we use what we find. We do not dye our leather, so once a leather is gone, it's gone.
