We attended an art show yesterday after the French Italian car show (photos on my Flickr). We had a full day! It was a lot of fun, too. There were around 250 vendors at the art show. We met this young gentleman, Dameon Washington, who was selling some wonderful bags, wallets, & purses. They were all done with newspaper & laminating. It's just amazing what people come up with. Dameon was a pleasure to talk with & he told us how this project all started. His story was:
What began as a school project for artist Dahli Coles is now an extensive line of accessories known as THE NEWS. Created from recycled newspaper, each unique piece has been cut, sewn & laminated with a durable water resistant finish. Handmade in Los Angeles, California.
Read it today & wear it tomorrow. If you have a moment check out his website at:http://thenewsla.com/.
