Kickstart Alert: Rusée – The World’s most innovative eco-friendly bags

13-Jun-2018

Recently we had the wonderful chance to speak with Geraldine – cofounder of Rusee. Rusee is a brand that was started as a movement in the sustainable fashion industry along with meeting the needs of being luxurious and timeless. What they do, is extremely interesting. When I hear of an upcycling project I think of rags to some what decent bags. Rusee is not that – they are a high quality, high fashion brand that is conscious at its core.

They curate scrap leather and hand pick pieces that are high quality and reusable. Then they design and manufacture absolutely stunning bags in their French factory. The dual advantage of using scrap leather is that first, it reduced CO2 emissions by 97% and second, each Rusee piece is unique. The leather colors that you chose, may not be available tomorrow, which means your bag can literally never be replicated.
