Here's one of our first bags made from Vicky's mom's vintage houndstooth. That's how we started, by using our own stashes of fabric 'til we had used it all up and made 'Echoes in the Attic'. Then we got that fateful call, "We're getting rid of about 2,000 pounds of vegan leather and fabric a day", a man said, who was looking for an eco-friendly way to deal with XS textiles in massive quantities from post-manufacturing. And so it goes in life sometimes, many years later, I married that man. Funny how life has a way of putting you right on the path on which you're supposed to be.
