"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.
