Every bag we make at reMade USA is made by hand. Patterns have to be altered regularly to work with the cut of the jacket. It is a very thoughtful process and it means that every bag made is unique, beyond the jackets details. I often cannot visualize exactly how it will turn out until it is almost done.
Through this extremely edited-down photo journal, I want people to think about the amount of work that goes into making a bag… or a dress or a pair of jeans for that matter. There are many steps, especially if the piece is not mass produced. No two jackets that I find are alike. Each one must be deconstructed and design decisions must be made.
