Colourcycle is a small design company started in 2015 which focusses on taking recycled leather offcuts and making them into wearable fashion items.
Our leather comes from tanneries' waste containers, or has been given to us by individuals or companies that have purchased a surplus. We then recycle it to make our unique selection of round handbags, totes and pouches. Each bag is conceived, cut & sewn by Charlotte, in her home studio in Biarritz, France.
The offcuts are paired with natural linen/jute or recycled fabrics, often in opposing two-tones, because of their small surface area.
Differing thicknesses, odd colours and small pieces create more work for us but also interesting combinations, textures and 'collections' for your enjoyment...
