About Me

We are looking for models to shoot our bags and accessories with! Please get in touch if you would like to be one of the faces of our line!

Divina Denuevo - a relatively well kept secret - produces a collection of leather bags and accessories made using antique and vintage hardware and adornments - anything from old skeleton keys, cabinet door handles, keyplates and door knockers find a new life in fashion.

Divina Denuevo's line of leather goods are a perfect fit with local, eco-conscious consumers that appreciate the company's goal of repurposing hardware and adornments that would otherwise be destined for the landfill. With an emphasis on buying local and handmade, Divina Denuevo is an excellent example of an up-and-coming fashion line that offers an alternative to mainstream, mass produced off-shore designer brands.

The company's name, Divina Denuevo, literally means “Divine Again” in Spanish. We search high and low for antique and vintage hardware, keys and adornments, in an effort to upcycle something old that was otherwise destined for the landfill, and make it new again. We work with leather because it's organic, and intrinsically unique in that every piece has its own colour, grain, texture and idiosyncrasies, much like our repurposed hardware that shows signs of age and patina. It's luxurious while also being durable, allowing the wearer to carry a piece of the past with timeless style and elegance.

We've been fortunate to receive some great press coverage, which means our models will have the opportunity to be published! Check out where we've been featured:

We've also partnered with celebrity designer Jeff Garner of PROPHETIK, accessorizing his "Rebel Yell" collection and his latest collection at London Fashion Week, Vancouver Eco Fashion Week, and several fashion weeks around the USA.
