Here at Earth Divas, we try to upcycle fabric whenever we can. Not only is upcycling much more eco-friendly than using brand new material, it often produces results that are far more surprising and interesting!
Here’s a quick look at some of the fair trade bags we have that have upcycled fabrics.
1. Raja and Silk Shopping Bag
This awesome bag is made using recycled silk! You can see it here.
2. Recycled Rice Bag
We have designed several bags that use upcycled rice bags. The wonderful part of these recycled rice bags is that they all look different, depending on the colors and designs of the rice bag used. You can see it here.
We also offer recycled rice bag backpacks (which you can see here!)
3. Cash and Silk Bag
This beautiful bag is made of cotton, cashmere, and recycled silk. It’s definitely a luxurious bag, and most people can’t guess it uses upcycled fabrics! You can see this bag here.
4. Recycled Wrapper Bags
We just started carrying these recycled wrapper bags this spring, and I love them! These bags are made using wrappers and potato chip bags that would have ended up in a landfill.
