10. Leather Pouch bags

from $175,

Mark Cocar of Icon Mfg has long been the go-to upholsterer for the best mid-century modern antiques dealers in Vancouver—and his workshop at Parker Street Studios is the equivalent of a candy store for textile lovers. Now he’s taking that skill with the needle to more portable-sized designs with his new Pouch line of bags. Made from upcycled leathers—pillows from said MCM sofas, remnants from larger designs—each bag is unique, from Porsche-red perforated leather satchels to buttery-soft messenger bags. Order direct from Cocar via his Instagram, or head to Parker Street on the first Saturday of every month for its Open Studios days to fall in love with the whole line in person.
