Hoping to limit her participation in throwaway culture, Dana started making recycled leather bags that would last; and she wanted to find balance between family and career at the same time. It seems she's doing a lot more than that, though, as she's also promoting environmentally conscious living. She works from big to small, using the biggest pieces of recycled leather to create bags and smaller ones for the creation of wallets and trimmings. And, since she's using recycled leather, your bag just might've come from something awesome, like a pair of 80s glam rock pants. (We can only hope.)
