evon cassier is the oh. so. clever. mind behind cleverscene. her bags are all made out of upcycled thrift suits, and perfectly fit her motto- clever. stylish. functional. she believes that "you've got to give a little to take a little" and so shops at non-profit thrift stores as a way of donating to charity as she does business.
evon believes that every garment is just waiting to begin a new life- and maybe they were always meant to be a handbag! i love that she takes these otherwise unlucky suits, gives them little love and reconstruction, and turns them into beautiful handbags that leaves nothing to be desired. she works in the original pockets, buttons and zippers- which not only give them character, but also allows them to tell a bit of their story. you can also visit her website here."I believe that you can be environmentally conscious without sacrificing style. It just takes a little ingenuity, a great design and a commitment to quality. Each CLEVERSCENE bag is meticulously crafted using only the best upcycled materials from local, nonprofit thrift stores. This ensures that as I endeavor to create stylish and functional bags I'm also supporting a community that has been so wonderful to me. - Evon Cassier"
