The Eco Breakdown
I'm pleased to introduce my newest find: Hayden-Harnett. The owners decided to ensure that each part of their collection was locally sourced in the USA, and the bags themselves are beautiful. Check out this video on the story of the collection-- highlight is minute 2:45 when Benjamin Harnett says this:

"A lot of times, people will buy their leather in Italy...then they'll fly it to China to manufacture it, and then fly the products back...that's not good for the environment and that's not good for the economy."
