Some time ago, I wrote about the brand of fashion accessories by Peter Belisi, a fashion forward designer.   In addition to their tie and scarf collections, the brand now offers  luxury handbags.  And here’s something interesting taken from his Belisi Fashion Tip Today about what to look for in faux handbags.

Recycled plastic country bag

336425412 d82d28cb36 m Recycled plastic country bagThis Samina bag is fun, fresh, and is good for the planet because  it’s made of recycled plastic bags, which are a huge environmental hazard.

Handmade by cooperatives in India, the project collects plastic bags that litter the streets and neighborhoods of New Delhi.

The process is a renewing process which uses a fraction of the energy of recycling, where layers of different color plastic bags are placed on top of each other and fused together. The lining is made of polyester, and the trim of rexine/vinyl.  In addition to recycling plastic, the process does not require additional dyes or inks which may be toxic.
