PatchUp Accessories

Check out PatchUp Accessories- They create sustainable/eco fashion. PatchUp Accessories distributes handbags & apparel that are from 100% recycled candy wrappers.

I stumbled across them today on Facebook! I am in love with their handbags. I already have a tote bag made from juice pouches, but these are even better!!
I learned from their Facebook page that it can take up to four thousand candy wrappers and four days to create one individual bag. That certainly makes these one of kind!

Each is handcrafted using ancient weaving techniques and the export of these bags ensures that the artisans can make a fair living and support their families and communities.
