Margate Dinky Zero-Waste Handbag by LPOL
The Zero-Waste leather handbag handmade in Margate, England from surplus and dead stock materials carefully selected from the LPOL studio and workshop.
Taking its name from the British seaside town in which it is made, the Margate Dinky uses an assortment of five vegetable tanned surplus leathers in an array of vibrant colours from our core collection - mint, lemon yellow, sky blue, navy and red. This new mood-boosting colourway simmers with a low-key confidence, bringing to life the fun, free and creative vibe of Margate.
A true celebration of the LPOL Zero-Waste ethos, Dinky is a reimagining of one of our most popular handbag styles. Born entirely of a re-use and recycling philosophy, this new design incorporates multiple panels utilising textures of offcut surplus leathers collected and archived in our workshop and studio - material that would otherwise end up in landfill. The only element of this bag not upcycled or recycled is the metal hardware (we're working on it!). This circular production method not only gives the material a second life but it is kinder to the environment, saves water and reduces carbon emissions.
A contemporary take on the classic saddle bag, Dinky is perfectly proportioned to hold a refined edit of your daily essentials. Featuring LPOL's signature loop and keeper leather fastening highlighted with a pop of colour, this is a bag that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. An internal zip pocket provides extra security, plus there's a surplus cotton lining for added luxury and a recycled adjustable nylon shoulder strap that can be usefully detached and interchanged.
