Fellow Vancouverite, Erin Templeton recently got featured on NyMag blog! The eco-friendly Erin received her education in shoemaking at Cordwainer's College in London, England, and has been making her leather accessories completely by hand since 2000. Erin uses only leather to make her bags, shoes, and belts. Her creations are available in either new or recycled leather. It would be nice if all her products were from recycled leather to be truly eco-friendly though, wouldn't it?
You can find her leather stuff at 511 Carrall Street, Vancouver (corner of Pender St.), or at one of these other stores in Canada, USA (mainly NYC), and Japan.
