What Daisy Did

What Daisy Did

BAG-7-1-large Did you ever wonder what happens to fabric and leather offcuts when they hit the cutting room floor? Daisy did.

Daisy’s bags are made from recycled and factory off-cut leather that may have otherwise been wasted, which is why each bag is unique in finish and colour.

offcut bags have less impact on the environment, reduce waste and help create work in the developing world. Having worked for years for most of the major UK music festivals as part of recycling incentive schemes, we knew whatever we came up with needed to have a more positive impact on the environment than today’s disposable fashion. where possible we source recycled, natural and wasted materials. Our products are made in developing countries and we maintain a close relationships with the artisans and their families. We discourage child/elderly labour and pay our artisans a fair price. We are big believers in slow fashion and use timeless designs so the bags survive our ever changing fashion. Because our supply of leather is ever changing it means that every single bag is unique in colour.
