This is one-of-a-kind piece - a beautiful vanity bag made from a 70s suede jacket and cotton floral pencil skirt (bag is also lined with the floral print you see). The workmanship in this upcycled bag is incredible, and comes from a one-(wo)man shop in Busby, Maryland that goes by the name Lean Mean Sewing Machine or LMSM. And unwearable genuine brown suede jacket was disassembled and pieced together carefully with the salvageable pieces from a gorgeous navy and yellow floral print skirt to create this immaculate, true vintage AND handmade bag. It included an all-metal zipper and sturdy handle with metal D rings. Take this opportunity to own a nostalgic, sustainable bag - to be used for toiletries, cosmetics, an on-the-go "must-haves" travel kit, or whatever purpose you find it best serves!

Bag Dimensions:
8" length
7" height
4.5" width
12" zipper enclosure
