If you live in L.A. you know the beauty that is Dean. Danny Dean Davis established Dean, in 1999 on his coffee table after being unable to find a wide leather watch band with a vintage feel, yet a modern sensibility. Move forward 10+ years and now Dean has not only a store with an atelier in back, located in Silver Lake, but a new online shopping site for those of us not in the area. Operating under the principals; quality, integrity, and good design, his range of recycled bags has caught our eye! This Circular Handle Tote b22 has a detachable latigo shoulder strap and an interior pocket. The perfect laptop shape – it’s 14x14x4.5”. $225.00 USD.
This Circle Bag b21 with its gorgeous bowling bag shape – also with with heavy latigo handle and interior pocket, 19×3”. $175.00 USD. Note: Dean recycled bags are made from vintage jackets so the colors are always different and color varies from bag to bag. You can select either black, brown or tan and they’ll use a vintage jacket from that color range. Handmade in Los Angeles, ships everywhere.
