Eco Source Book: Ananas

These incredibly chic handbags and clutches are made from leather and abaca, a natural fiber taken from the trunk of a plant found in the Philippines. Though the line is constantly evolving—and new materials like coconut shells, mother-of-pearl shells, and wood have been added to the mix—the sleek geometric shapes and polished hardware are winningly constant.

Eco Source Book: Ting London

Upon her graduation from the Royal College of Art in London, Inghua Ting was inspired to create a high-end-looking line made from recycled materials like old seat belts, leather belts, and vintage saddles. Her satchels and barrel bags have a cool, industrial feel and are crafted from vegetable-tanned leathers and secondhand materials sourced from Paris, London, and Los Angeles.

Eco Source Book: Ashley Watson

Doing her part to promote recycling, Ashley Watson creates totes, shoulder bags, and clutches from unwanted—but broken-in and buttery-soft—leather jackets. Each style bears the scars of its past incarnation, with exposed stitching and obvious pocket detailing, for an effect that's streety and truly chic.
