“Twenty 4 Seven” bag in “Gunmetal.”
No one wants to show up to an event with the same look as someone else. Who wants to be wearing the same dress as the girl on the other end of the bar? Even the thought makes me shudder.
While I cannot tell you how to prevent wearing the same dress or top as a fellow party-goer, I can tell you how to spice up your look and guarantee you will not be carrying the same bag as her.
Enter Nahui Ollin. The handbag company produces handmade handbags that are not only good for the environment, but also help developing areas thrive. They set up shop in struggling communities in Mexico and provide jobs to adults in the area. The shops are set up in or near the schools, so parents can walk their children to school, and already be at work for the day. They are produced under Fair Trade and Sweatshop free practices, allowing families to make money while their children are being educated.
“Mary Poppins Medium” bag in “Barcode.”
“Honey Dew” bag in “Splash.”
The bags are made from misprinted or out of date candy wrappers and magazine pages that would otherwise be incinerated or destroyed. These wrappers are provided by Nahui Ollin’s business partners Tootsie, Disney, Hershey’s, PEZ, and Target.
“Candy wrapper bags? Won’t those look like something a 7-year-old would carry?”
No way! These chic bags come in all shapes, sizes, and colors to match any outfit or style. They make everything from the gray Gunmetal collection, to the colorful Floral line, to the trendy Metallic bags. There are bags for going out, running errands, and heading into the office. I want one for everyday of the week!
