Ferra bag by Collina Strada

Collina Strada bags Fall 2009 1

Collina Strada has created an eco-conscious Fall 2009 collection from printed organic canvases and vegetable dyed leather. I´m glad that she states on her website that Margiela (among others) inspires her as The Ferra bag looks very much like A Margiela. But it´s all good. This is what I´ve been talking about. Find something what you like and make the design your own, in this case from your fav designer bag in eco leather. I´d just love to know if Maison Martin Margiela feels the same way as this designer is not exactly smalltime-Etsy-home crafter...

  1. hi - i love your blog and think you may love my book, "denim revolution" filled with recycled designer denim looks or my blog http://21centurydressmakers.blogspot.com

  2. Thank you so much Nancy! I have your book!! :D I posted about it last July.


  3. I actually think that mentioning Margiela isnt enough if you are going to make what looks like a carbon copy of his bag. Also I think its quite revealing that all her influences are designers.

  4. I want this bag!!! I know is 2013 a few years ahead, but does anyone know how or where I could buy that black and white one? write me: marciaa@gmail.com
