In the Bag

I have been searching for quite some time for a purse that is stylish, versatile, large, affordable and (here’s the biggest challenge) eco-friendly or non-leather. I kept being drawn to the shiny styles of department store designers, but was not impressed with the price tags or the materials they were made of, so I took my search online. And I must admit, when I saw this purse, I knew it was the ONE. Unfortunately, even on sale it was still more than I wanted to spend. However, lo and behold, a little online searching and I found it at for a fraction of the price.

I love that this bag from Matt & Nat uses recycled “Japanese paper” instead of leather and the faux suede interior lining is made from recycled bottles. Now that’s what I call a fashion statement
