Williamsburg restaurant Marlow & Sons now sells leather bags made from the tanned hides of the same animals they serve to diners. The totes couldn't be more locavore: The skins come from locally-raised, grass-fed cows and pigs, while the production takes place in the Garment District. Marlow also sells belts, wallets, and footballs, and they're planning to add rabbit hats and lambswool sweaters for fall 2011. [NYP]
