Kelly Horton FINALIST'S PROFILE

What is your bag made out of?
Made with old recycled cassette player tape, woven into fabric, Recycled scrap brass, leather scrap pieces and organic bees waxed hemp/cotton blend

Where do you source your materials?
for the fabric I found a lady in Brooklyn who weave the cassette tape and the metal and leather are waste from companies I source my regular materials.

Where are bags sold?
www.madisonkellynyc.com

What is your design inspiration?
The fabric was just so amazing I couldn't resist.. I wanted to design a sustainable bag that a woman would wear on a date... Or a night out with her friends. Its a bag with a cool design history!

Have you worked with cork before?
no

Why would you want to collaborate with Timberland?
I think I would be cool if Timberland could find a way to use this fabric... I could inspire them!
