These bags are made from recycled and factory offcut leather that may have otherwise been wasted, which is why each bag is unique in finish and colour. Our offcut bags have less impact on the environment, reduce waste and help create work in the developing world. These bags are created by over 60 skilled families that lost their jobs when the leather shoe trade moved to China. We do not use child or forced labour, all staff are paid fairly and given flexible working hours.

These bags are durable and use timeless designs in protest against our disposable fashion industry.
As our supply of material is ever changing, no two bags are the same colours.

Selling through Discovered creates more income for artisans. They can set the price they want to receive for the products themselves. By cutting out all middlemen, artisans receive at least 20% more for their products. This is what we call fairer trade.
Discovered is dedicated to creating positive impact. Not all artisans work alone. Sometimes they work in groups or collectives, are helped by not for profit organizations or work for social businesses. We select our partners to ensure more artisans have work make at least 10% above average wage.
We are committed to crafts. We encourage artisans to make products using traditional crafts and techniques. Making products mainly by hand or with easy accessible tools or common available machines. We believe this is important to keep alive.
We love handmade. We also feel strongly about preserving the world we live in. That’s why we work with our partners & artisans to stimulate using local materials and natural resources, and paying special attention to packaging & shipping.
