Tote-ally Tab Maillecomments (7) July 29th, 2008 in gallery
This tote bag is made from 100% post-consumer recycled aluminum soda can tabs. They are bound together with recycled nylon crochet cord from a thrift store purse I unravelled. The tote is lined in recycled denim from an old pair of shorts. Only the thread used to sew the lining is new, so I am entering this tote in the "eco-chic" category. This bag shows that you really can make something out of nothing. It is beautiful, functional, and earth-friendly. And a real conversation starter, too.
