The Pouch Shopping Bag is a design that aims to celebrate the long-lasting qualities of leather as an approach to sustainability. Taking single-use products such as plastic bags, boxes, and envelopes as inspiration, I aimed to create a bag that would not only last a long time but maintain an evergreen quality. To achieve this, I informed my design by one of the main reasons why users change their bags before the outer leather is damaged, the lining. By creating a replaceable organic hemp twill pouch, the user will be able to replace just that part of the design when needed, maintaining the leather shell. This design is thought to be an everyday use handbag with replaceable interior pouches that allow the user to get several different-looking bags within one bag, combating overconsumption. Leather is often ignored and even overlooked when discussing sustainability, however, due to its organic origins and long-lasting qualities it is perfect to create products that last for several generations to use, instead of discardable products made with alternative materials. I believe that smart, high-quality leather products offer a great solution when talking about sustainability in the world of handbags.
