It’s great to see all of the recent recycling ingenuity cropping up on Eco Etsy, as we are all for DIY solutions for reusing perfectly good design and salvaged craft materials. Extra points have to go to Detroit-based designer David Shock, though, as he has cleverly found a way to repurpose discarded day-glo construction fencing into one-of-a-kind totes for market and around town shopping. Ornj Bags are not only eco-friendly, but also a smart way to keep the neighborhood tidy and vibrant with street fashion that allows you to go green for the long haul!

Ornj Bags are handmade from reused construction fencing, salvaged from abandoned fields and work sites. This ubiquitous plastic construction material is inherently malleable and strong – not to mention eye-catching in its bold color and lace pattern. All are available with a removable felt, recycled fabric lining to protect one’s valuables and coin stash.

The collection’s designer states, “I first was going to create a simple laundry bag to carry my stuff down the three flights of stairs in my apartment but later realized what a great tote bag it would make for going to the market.” After spending a bit of time tweaking the design(s), Shock created a variety of different models for his Ornj Collection. Necessity is indeed the mother of invention, or in this case, cool design construction and hunting always originates on the streets.

Ornj Bags are available via David Shock Designs on Etsy, from $20 for Ornj Tote Basic to $50 for the Ornj Messenger. The recycled fabric liner is an additional $10.

    It’s great to know that waste can create an amazing new world of organic fashion along with incredible benefits of fencing. Your mind blowing thoughts can help my fencing company where I work for in and around California to create a new phrase for fencing from recycles materials. I can now redesigns vinyl to chain link with a new look. Nice share.

    It is amazing that fashionable pieces can be made from recycled construction fencing like this. It makes one wonder what could be done with other fencing materials? Why not try building a new fence?
