Recycled Barcode Woven Cosmetic Case/Cell Phone Pouch


Check out this cute cosmetics/cellphone pouch. Made out of surplus candywrappers by women's cooperatives in Mexico, you can support fair trade without compromising your style. They also come in other patterns (or candywrapper types) and sizes including this great pink clutch and an earthy green version.

these candywrapper (or potato chip bag, or whatever else is handy) decorative items are made by lots of prisoners as well. my aunt has a son in prison and his fellow inmates make little trinkets like this for her all the time.


a very cool idea, there is also another line doing the same kind of bags http://www.she3.com/2005/08/30/candy-wrapper-bags/
