Beautiful bespoke bags and accessories made from up-cycled leather
At Spitalfields Traders Market: Saturday & Sunday
London based bag and accessories designer Yildiz Incedal has been passionately making bags from up-cycled leather and trading at Spitalfields Traders Market for over seven years. The production process begins with Yildiz ethically sourcing vintage leather jackets and other leather items from London based businesses so that she knows exactly where the materials are from.
Yildiz’s design process is organic in that she takes inspiration from the natural texture and aesthetic of vintage leather she is up-cycling. Her love for travel can be seen in the lining of her bags, with African print giving a contemporary and edgy touch. The main characteristics of Yildiz & I bags are the zips and studs, which run beautifully across the bags. The final touch to the bags is to attach a strap, which is either made using an up-cycled leather piece or a vintage belt.
