Miranda Chance’s aim is to utilize old denim jeans and rework old leather coats into well-designed bags of both strength and style. Each of her bags adhere to her daily environmental practice of recycling, reducing reusing, all while creating an elegant and stylish product. And not only do Miranda’s aptly named “Chance” bags give a second life to unwanted denim, but they’ve been designed to provide everything needed in a bag, with styles that range from a swinging clutch to hold-all! The durability of the denim and the soft leather lends a funky look to each item, creating a unique, one-of-a-kind style.

    Hello Miranda…

    I have the placemat and coasters listed in the competition. From the very beginning of the competition for votes, I told my husband, “if I lose the votes to anyone, I hope it’s the woven denim “chance” bag.” SIMPLY GORGEOUS!!! You can tell just by looking at it the craftmanship is supurb!
