Story Behind the Art:
Born of a desire to reduce India's mountain of waste, improve energy efficiency and help some of Delhi's poorest out of the city's slums, Conserve India achieves all this by turning plastic bags into high fashion. Today Conserve India employs and trains hundreds of people from Delhi's most disadvantaged communities to clear their streets of the plague of plastic bag waste. Once the waste bags are turned into HRP products they are sold for profits which can be spent in those same communities on education and welfare programmes. By buying a Conserve bag, belt, wallet, shoe or necklace you not only get to be a trend setter with a beautiful funky piece of high fashion, but you will also be helping some of India's poorest people and its environment.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

Sturdy and good looking, urban, crossbody strap, tight close, padded, indestructible. Wish they sold a larger model for days when I need a larger one, but it fits my daily use. Glad I bought it, especially for the price. Good shipping.Read More
This bag is better than I imagined. It is sturdy, roomy, and will last forever. I'm buying two more for holiday presents! GREAT BUY!Read More
the bag is great and arrived in a timely manner. The only problem about it is that it smells like tires, but it's made out of tires so I don't exactly know what I expected. Great bag though!Read More
I REALLY LIKED THIS BAG, WAS A LITTLE HEAVY BUT LOVED IT. TOO BAD MY NAUGHTY LABRADOR RIPPED IT APART..................:(Read More
Great bag! Easily the most unique, cool bag I've owned. This bag is everything I hoped it would be...cool, repurposed material, quality construction, durable, not too big & not too small. Perfect for daily use! I received it as a gift although I have to admit, I put it on my list of must have's. Wish I had gotten more than one b/c I don't ever want to be w/out it should I have to retire this one. I am a bag whore & this easily claimed the top spot in my collection. Everyone asks where I got it. I tell them it was handmade by a Tibetan monk in exile and it's a one of a kind,..just kidding. I send everyone to Overstock.com even though I don't ever want them to run out! The only improvement I can think of would be if there was a zipper top under the flap...but there isn't & I'll live. ;) Happy shopping peeps! Overstock.com rocks!Read More
This bag looks much more purse-y to me in person. It also seemed smaller than stated dimensions...this might be because the texture of the bag makes it hard to slide things in/out of it. I dig the recycled factor, but the weird lines and marks on the bag made it look dirty. Sent back already.Read More
Great bag for a great cause. This bag is practical, sturdy and weather proof...all things u need when riding public transportation in a city that has fickle weather. I recommend this product. It has space for my ereader, agenda and sometimes my shoes and lunch...which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. I'm also not a fan of velcro but somehow I don't mind it with this product.Read More
I got this because it has the look of black leather but it is recycled tire tubes. I support anything that is "recycled" whenever possible and this is unique and I love it. I didn't notice a heavy rubber smell as some reviewers mentioned. My 14" laptop fits in perfectly and feels strong and the lining is very nice. Well made bag and I expect it will last a very long time.Read More
I bought two. This is my favorite purse, my best briefcase. It is waterproof and so, so chic. I don't ever want to be without them.Read More
Questions & Answers
How to Care for Amber Jewelry
Amber is an attractive but delicate ornament. Popular for its deep golden color and natural patterns, amber decorates both antique and modern jewelry, from beaded necklaces to rings and earrings. Handmade amber jewelry from places like Poland, Thailand and India lends an eclectic look to any outfit. This jewelry requires special care, as amber is soft and can be easily damaged by even mild chemicals. If exposed to sudden changes in temperature, amber can crack or even break. For these reasons, care should be taken to protect amber jewelry when wearing, cleaning and storing it. With proper care, your beautiful jewelry will last a lifetime.
