B. Pozzitive Bags

My name is Betsy Pozzanghera, (and I am Pozzitive). I have been involved in creative endeavors such as ceramics, sewing, cooking, copper enameling, candle-making, since childhood.

Three (3) Christmases ago my mother-in-law gave me the gift of an online Craftsy.com course of my choice. I chose “Making Leather Bags” ---- the rest, as they say, is history.

After making my first leather bag I wondered if I could make a bag from my old pair of leather boots…yes. Then a jacket I bought at the thrift store, then … then … then…

My process involves the deconstruction of used leather jackets, skirts, boots, etc. Together with used leather belts, horse reins, gifted hair-on hide, and new leather I create one-of-a-kind bags and purses - giving them new and different useful lives.

Most of the leather pieces have natural wear, raw edges, holes, and markings. This contributes to their story.

Each piece I create is unique.

Custom orders from an idea, a beloved jacket, or “Dad’s old boots” are very welcomed.

My hope is that the bag you choose will lift your life.


Betsy
