This Vancouver bag designer has gone from a local favourite to a huge international collaboration with Urban Outfitters. Erin Templeton—known for designing and creating beautiful bags made from recycled leather and locally tanned hides in her Chinatown studio since 2007—unveiled her collaboration with Urban Outfitters last month. The Erin Templeton x UO Hobo Bag is available online and in stores all over the world, in black or tan vegan leather. This bag is not only gorgeous with its soft leather slouch, but comes with an eco-friendly tag, too—her first ever 100 per cent vegan product. We love it when a local artisan goes global.
