Precious Skin by Victoria Ledig is a unique collection of handbags made from unusual cow body parts that not only shows how much of each animal is wasted, but also how well-disguised leather products often are. Heads, tails, ears, and lower legs, all of which are unmistakable parts of a dead cow, were used to construct the bags. The upcycled materials help to create value from something that used to be considered waste, while the designs themselves force people to reevaluate their opinion.
