Here’s An Idea: Handbags Made From Vinyl Flooring…

Walk into your kitchen, and take a look at your vinyl flooring. Most people would never imagine using that flooring for anything else other than…flooring.

But, Laura Giovannini, a handbag designer in Italy, saw that same vinyl flooring and thought: eco handbags.

This is the kind of thinking we’re all about here at Earth Divas!

Here’s what Laura does: she takes old vinyl flooring (like you can see in these images) and turns it into a cotton or felt-lined handbag. She takes old seatbelts, which like the flooring would have been thrown away, and then uses them for the handles and straps on her bags.

The result? An eco friendly handbag that keeps all that material out of a landfill. Win!

Take a look at some of Laura’s other cool designs:

So here’s the skinny: they’re unique, they’re cool, and they’re 100% eco friendly. Laura, and her Etsy shop anonimaMente, gets a huge thumbs up from me!
