Designer Allison Teich scours thrift stores and garage sales for unusual vintage fabrics, buttons,
ties and belts to create her unique line of handbags.
By creatively transforming materials from bygone eras into reliable bags and accessories, these materials are revived into functional and fashionable fits for your everyday life.
"a natural evolution of two loves; the earth & fashion."
Every morning on her way to work, designer Allison Teich would stop for coffee at
her corner deli where she was served a paper cup swathed in a paper bag and topped by
an army of napkins. Always one to stress about the environment, especially the amount of daily
waste, this morning cup put her over the edge. In that instant she decided to make
a difference by starting to design “green” handbags. It seemed a natural evolution
of two loves; the earth and fashion.
