Fake Plastic Bags – Made From Real Leather

February 16th 2011

Fakeness is traditionally associated with inferiority; cheap Rolexes that break in two weeks, plastic Christmas trees, leaking silicone breasts, imitation caviar... However, in a society in which everything is a copy of a copy, the 'fake' seems to gain a certain authenticity.

Can you imagine anything more classy and luxurious than these anonymous, brand less, recognizable ‘throw away’ bags re-created in durable, high quality leather by Femke de Vries? Better than the real thing!

I love my little NextNature booklet so I decided to check this site. I am tickled to see one of my designs here! see my husband's and I design gallery website http://www.maus-haus.com and look for leather accesories. Maus Haus was founded in Beirut, lebanon in 2003

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
