    This simple handbag is hand-made by folding and weaving recycled candy wrappers together, on their website is advertised as durable and great for almost anything. They exhibited in Paris at the ETHICAL FASHION SHOW , great place to find eco-luxury items. It comes in many colours, I adore this multicolour bag. “A frequenter of the cultural festivals near her local hometown in Mexico, it was here that designer Olga Abadi discovered the ancient Mayan technique of binding everyday materials into handbags. The result is Nahui Ollin, a specialty line of handbags inspired by age-old techniques with a modern look and feel.“ [source: http://nahuiollin.com]

    I love this multicolored bag from Nahui Ollin who is a specialty line of handbags inspired by age-old techniques with a modern look and feel. The bag is perfect for just about everything such as traveling, at the office, at school or at the gym. I love it!

    i absolutely love your bags, except for one thing. i can't bring myself to purchase one yet because i DO NOT like the handles/shoulder straps. the bags themselves are so unique and the handles are so average, boring, and out of style! the material reminds me of something you would find at a discount store. such an eclectic bags deserves a more unique strap to help show it off. perhaps braided, distressed leather, or a woven together mixture of ribbon and rope. i love the tutti frutti pattern, just despise the detail added to the bag :(

      I agree about the handles. I love the purses but prefer a long strap to sling crossways over my shoulder so I can shop hands free. I don't like something I have to "carry" with my hand. Too much trouble. http://sweetandsassygirl.com
