Details

This colorful shoulder bag comes from Maria Isabel Ramos in Guatemala. The eco-savvy designer knows the metalized wrappers used for sweets and chips are not biodegradable; therefore, in an effort to preserve the environment, she transforms them into a trendy accessory. "My favorite color is silver, but I also like bright colors," says Ramos of this shoulder bag. Entirely crafted by hand, the bag is lined with cotton and features an inner pocket.

"Win, win, win!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This purse is so well-suited to my persona in many ways. As a person whose work entails overseeing reducing, reusing and recycling for my workplace, seeing this creative use of wrappers warms my heart. As a creative person, Im inspired by the actual how-to in putting the wrappers together. And as a woman who has championed womens financial independence through micro-credit systems, its heartening to know that my purchase will make another life a wee bit better. Even though this was not a gift, it was a gift to me and I loved the packaging - recycled paper and the small figurine in woven in those traditional glorious fibers.
