Eco-fashion for the conscious fashionista

Love these bags? I definitely did! What’s even better-they are eco-friendly. Nahui Ollin by Olga Abadi was established in 2003 for exactly that reason, to answer the need for “green” fashion. The line of hand-made purses uses an ancient Mayan technique to fold and bind recycled and defective candy wrappers into stylish wristlets, totes and messenger bags. Each bag is hand-crafted by artisans in Mexico, so no two bags are the same. This brings me to another plus about Nahui Ollin, it has brought big business to locals who are now able to support their families. Ahh, fashion you can feel good about!

  1. I really like these bags…talk about ‘up-cycling’! And yes, I said up-cycling…when you use recycled products to make something better than it was in its original state! Super cute.
