Motorcycle upcycle

I love things that are well made, though I'm definitely no Hipster!

I also like things that are to raise money for charity, especially a charity close to my heart. So, when this overnight bag appeared on a bike forum I frequent and was told it was upcycled from an old set of bike leathers that had been crashed in and donated to the cause, well, I felt duty bound to tell you all about it.

Can you believe it, a set of leathers that would otherwise have probably gone into land fill has become a beautiful and practical object. And on top of which the proceeds will go to a breast cancer charity.

If you wish to buy it, then follow the link to the Etsy shop here - - keep in mind all the hard work that goes into making such a bespoke item.
