TING – reclaimed leathers & vintage leather belts
TING is a London and Los Angeles based design company that produces luxury products to sustainable, ethical principles . Inghua Ting established TING in 2000. Following her graduation from the Royal College of Art, Inghua worked in Japan developing innovative, futuristic fabrics. However, working at the forefront of fabric technology led her to considering sustainable issues, and the challenge of designing and producing a desirable, luxury product from reclaimed materials. Inspired by seat belts, old leather belts, vintage leather saddles and a range of salvaged fabrics, Inghua cleverly incorporates these materials into new designs to show them off to their best advantage (see the gorgeous vintage belt floor mat we featured back in 2009).
This black British saddle leather satchel with specially selected vintage belts features vintage buckle fastening, leather adjustable cross-body strap an external sleeve pocket under flap and two internal slot pockets, lined with vintage fabric. Each bag is unique and hand made in England. £205 | $340. Ships everywhere.
