Been London: Using only waste materials to create stylish handmade bags

Been London is turning waste materials – including leather offcuts, recycled leather, recycled polyester and used plastic bottles – into stylish handbags and accessories.

From tote bags to clutch bags, Been London utilise materials that would otherwise end up in landfill to create everyday items.

The brand, which manufactures its products at its east London studio, works with London-based makers and operates within circular practices.

Been London says: “Our firm belief is that ethical products can look beautiful without costing the earth. This is why we search the world for the newest circular technologies and most sustainable solutions.”
