The Sample Swatch Bag's story begins in North Carolina, where the fabric swatches are initially sourced. When brands are looking for the right fabric for their design, factories will send them swatches to look through to find what they want. These swatches were then donated from a leather goods brand based in Charlotte NC. Once the swatches are sourced, they are transported to Margret’s studio in North Carolina where the pieces will be reworked to create a new fabric slab. This bag is handmade by Margaret in her studio, embracing the nature of slow fashion as she ensures the utmost quality of each piece. By creating one-of-a-kind items and collecting any scraps or trims, Margaret directly combats waste while producing this jacket. Once your bag is completed, it is packaged in a compostable polybag and dropped off at a shipment center headed straight to you. This bag has lived in 1 country, given new life to discarded fabric, and traveled hundreds of miles to earn a permanent spot in your wardrobe. We hope you love this bag and wear it with pride, knowing that you are embodying fashion and choosing to better the planet with your conscious shopping choice.
