Gallery: ESCAMA STUDIO: Recycled Aluminum Pulltab Handbags

 

Being resourceful is definitely a virtue these days, and sharing your craftiness with others is perhaps the best way to sprinkle the seeds of good design. But an eco chic accessory that is crafted from 100% recycled materials while also promoting fair trade employment? Well, this is a brilliant scenario for advancing sustainable style while also reducing needless waste and litter.

We have been big fans of Escama recycled aluminum pulltab handbags and totes ever since we spied them on some of the savviest eco babes in town. We are excited to announce that our new online Inhabitat Shop will feature a hand-picked assortment of supercute Escama bags as a means to aid our gift-giving readers and the Brazilian women who handcraft these beautifully original designs.

    Aren’t these bags amazing? Using recycled pop tabs is so innovative– who knew something that would otherwise be garbage could make such a chic purse? And what a conversation piece! It’s no wonder these bags garner so many compliments. Kudos to Escama for empowering Brazilian women and making a real difference in the fashion world and beyond. We at Jute and Jackfruit love everything about Escama!
