This is a quiet little purse that really packs a punch with its innovative design. The body of the purse is woven with cotton yarns of light and dark greens, blue and rust, and interwoven into the cotton are narrow strips cut from blue plastic newspaper bags. The combination of cotton and plastic makes this an especially strong structure especially with the addition of a sewn foldover cuff at the top. The purse is made even stronger by the denim interior. New blue denim fabric is the sewn in lining and another surprise are the two interior pockets which are neatly cut from the pockets of recycled jeans and given a second life! The strap measures 20" from end to end and is neatly braided from a strong cotton purple rope. This purse has a magnetic closure and measures 11 1/2" W x 9" L x 1 1/2" D.
