Looking to pack your bags and hit the road? How about packing those bags in eco-friendly reclaimed leather...

Waltzing Matilda is a fashion accessory company founded in Pennsylvania that is creating beautiful handmade leather pieces, while keeping its carbon footprint to a minimum. From sandals, bags and belts to wallets, cuff links and even hacky sacks; the products that this company sells are reclaimed, recycled and most impressively, hand-made right here in the United States. The creative thinkers behind Waltzing Matilda travel the country in search of leather and other materials and tools to create their uniquely beautiful pieces.

Inspiration for their designs comes from incredible places. An old worn saddle becomes a hand sewn leather purse, wallet and belt. Leather from an old pair of boots gets recycled into a new pair of sandals. But they don't stop at just leather... They've created a unique set of repurposed buffalo nickel cuff links as well a beautiful hand forged silver bracelet. The company has an admirable mission for reclaiming and recycling, and a passion to maintain the art of handmade goods in the USA. They are dedicated to keeping their business in the US over saving money by importing goods. All the more reason to feel good about purchasing a Waltzing Matilda product. And they're even doing business right here in Maine!

So if you're looking to invest in some new luggage for your future travels, be sure you check out Waltzing Matilda's duffels, carry-on bags, and the St. Christopher backpack. You won't be disappointed by their unique designs and impressive hand stitching. http://www.waltzingmatildausa.com
