Company Description

Our brand turns recycling into a bold fashion statement with eco-chic handbags and accessories handcrafted in Boulder, Colorado. In 2001 Heather English had a predicament; she was searching for a new vegan handbag that was stylish and eco-friendly – a lofty request at the time. While some people get their best ideas in the shower, Heather got hers while floating down Boulder Creek on an inner tube. “It occurred to me that this inner tube could be made into the handbag I’d been dreaming of.

We repurpose inner tubes collected from local truck stops. “We want to provide consumers with an opportunity to make sustainable fashion choices without compromising style or quality.” We strive to continue to deepen our commitment as a Triple Bottom Line company (people, planet, profit) as we provide consumers with fashionable products which have a low impact on the environment.

Founded on socially and environmentally conscious ideals, we  believe in using only cruelty-free and vegan materials in conjunction with crafty ingenuity. English Retreads founder, Heather English, says her design philosophy is to create classic, one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted accessories that make a high-impact fashion statement and a low impact on the environment.

“Each new design begins with the idea of striving to keep more waste out of the landfill by creating fashionable, yet sturdy items out of recycled materials,” Heather says. “And by turning recycling into a bold fashion statement, we at English Retreads can empower consumers with an ecologically sound alternative to animal products without compromising style or durability. It's a win-win situation for everyone.”

Working with Native Energy, we are offsetting 100% of the carbon emissions from our manufacturing operations, shipping and our employees' commutes.
