Our mission - re-inventing the wheel and mindfully saving the planet with styleMission

English Retreads purses, handbags, shoulder bags and messenger bags are eco-conscious, made in the USA, stylish and unique.

Founded on socially and environmentally conscious ideals, English Retreads believes in using only cruelty-free and vegan materials in conjunction with crafty ingenuity. English Retreads founder, Heather English, says her design philosophy is to create classic, one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted accessories that make a high-impact fashion statement and a low impact on the environment.

“Each new design begins with the idea of striving to keep more waste out of the landfill by creating fashionable, yet sturdy items out of recycled materials,” Heather says. “And by turning recycling into a bold fashion statement, we at English Retreads can empower consumers with an ecologically sound alternative to animal products without compromising style or durability. It's a win-win situation for everyone.”
