VIP Unlimited Bands: Banding Together
The VIP Unlimited accessory collection not only brings life to style, but they are accessories with a CAUSE. When accessory designer Leigh Ann Barnes began creating her high end clutches for specialty stores in 2010 she realized the amount of leather waste each style produced. The thought was — if her small company was producing this much waste, weren’t others?
I love what Leigh did next. She wanted to create a product that would use the leather remnants and at the same time give women jobs here in the U.S., especially ones who were trying to rebuild their lives. So with that dream, VIP Unlimited Bands were born and debuted this past June at the Atlanta Apparel Mart.
They are small leather cuffs that come in Pure Gold Lambskin, Italian Snakeskin Embossed Calfskin, Metallic Snakeskin, Honey Crocodile Embossed Italian Calfskin, Gunmetal Lambskin, Chestnut Python Embossed Calfskin, Tiger Printed Calf Hair and tons of other incredible luxe remnants. Each stylish cuff is priced at $18 each. The other cool thing about these cuffs is that they convert into a chic ponytail tie. Proudly made in the United States from Los Angeles, California to Athens, Georgia.
VIP Unlimited also creates headbands made out of the same luxe remnants from designer handbag leftovers. Each headband is priced at $40 each. I’m pretty sure that I need every single one! The BIG message behind this collection is truly amazing. Each piece is handmade by survivors of domestic violence. You can take pride in knowing that your unique cuff is helping end the cycle of violence! Order online, or check out the US boutiques that carry the collection.
