Earth Day Ultimate: Eco-Friendly Fleabags Tote
April 13, 2012 | by —Michelle Ward | Homepage
With Earth Day arriving soon, snapping up Fleabags’ earth-friendly Original Flea: Sailor Stripe ($440) is the perfect way to pay homage and snag a summer bag while you’re at it. The nautically inspired design is the latest to join the eco-friendly line’s signature collection for spring/summer 2012.
Classic yet distinct, the organic cotton/hemp canvas tote features marine blue striping, midnight water-based silkscreens, and a hand-written edition number on each bag. Vegetable-tanned lamb leather straps also make it comfortable to throw over your shoulder. Designed by owners and self-proclaimed “flea market addicts” Shira Entis and Alex Bell to be multifunctional, the tote works for everything from weekend bag to market shopping.
