Recycled magazine shoulder bag, 'Solid Ground' (Costa Rica)

Be as eco-savvy as you are fashionable with this shoulder bag made of woven strips of recycled magazine pages. The artisan carefully chooses pages to create an earth-toned stripe in the center bordered with white and brown stripes on the top and bottom.

The purse is crafted by Costa Rica's artisan Luis Barboza, who loves to create beautiful accessories from recyclable materials.
