'Gorgeous' and 'waste' are not two things that usually go hand in hand.
And yet, Been London, a new socially conscious start up, manage to foster this unlikely partnering by literally 'turning waste into gorgeous things'.
In the heart of East London, this small but powerful company was founded on the premise that beautiful products shouldn't cost the earth (literally). They use off cuts of leather to beautifully craft luxury hand bags and wallets, whilst making use of all the empty plastic bottles we discard by crafting the zips and linings out of this unused material.
Our favourite? The Hoxton clutch. Might as well wear green whilst being green, right?
