Backstrap Loomed Recycled Purses

One of our Fair Trade artisan groups recently designed and wove a new recycled bag for us— the bags are really cute and also an exceptional idea of recycling!

The purse is woven from left over pieces of plastic that have been re-purposed and recycled  instead of being thrown into the landfills.  The plastic is cut into strips and then woven on backstrap looms with cotton yarn and  sewn into a delightful bag.
