It is no secret that I am a sucker for a beautifully crafted handmade bag. Naturally, I was instantly smitten when introduced to the designs of Alice Saunders for Forestbound. Using found and salvaged materials, Saunder’s artisanal bags have a charmingly rustic feel that extends from the sense of history captured in the vintage hardware and textiles, all of which are carefully sourced throughout New England. Each bag is one-of-a-kind and possesses a utilitarian aesthetic and subdued palette that makes her totes perfect for both ladies and gentlemen.
Every piece features an abundance of style, a little piece of history, a nod to eco-awareness and functionality. How can you resist? You can’t?! Well, you can shop online here.
