This shimmery, re-usable totebag is made from 100% recycled plastic. It is lined with a blue inner cotton lining. The blue lining has been dyed using natural dyes. The totebag features leather straps, contains a zipped inner compartment and is fastened by a metal clasp.
The recycled fabric had a previous life as grey Wal-mart plastic bags. This is what gives the fabric it's bluish-grey mermaid-like shimmer once recycled. It has been woven on a traditional Guatemalan strap loom.
Sourced from an artisan family business that started a woven recycled project incorporating plastics. They are based in Antigua, Guatemala.
