    Corinne sent this over from Chrome yesterday and shot over some nice images of the process today. The Salvage series is essentially using reclaimed materials to create some spiffy looking and unique bags. I can dig it. Heres what came in the press release…

    “Our Salvage Series uses reclaimed materials for the external panels of our Heritage buckle bag to create unique, one-of-a kind bags. Built in Chico, California, each series is limited by the quantity of available material. Each bag is stamped with the lot size and its unique number within the lot. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.”

    “For our first go at it, we’ve re-purposed reclaimed US Army tents. Hunt them down at our Chrome SF, NYC and Chicago shops – limit 40 bags per location – or through select dealers!”
