    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.

  • Awesome bag!!!

    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!

  • disappointed

    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.

    • How accurate was the sizing? not very

  • I love to recycle.

    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.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Exactly as described.

  • AWESOME bag (unique!), FAST shipping!

    These bags are cool looking, environmentally/socially responsible, durable, and different from what everyone else has. I couldn't be more pleased. Bought one for myself and one for my husband. The shipping was incredibly fast. A winner all around.

    Ever since the adoption of stray white cat (who had a white kitten the next day!), black ballistic nylon had to go. Can't get the fur off! I now have a larger tube bag, this bag and even a wallet! This is a great size for my tablet and more! Seriously consider inner-tube bags, as they can be easily cleaned and look very nice.

  • Nice and convient for carrying you computer/books

    I would like to see this in different colors . Would like to see this come with a carrying case for cell phones. I would recommend this for high school and college students for class and to use for computers.

  • cyclist chick chic

    I am a triathlete, so it is no surprise that I totally love a purse that has a bike tire running down the center of it :) I wish they carried a slightly smaller size too--I'd snap one up. THe only thing I don't like about it is that mine has this weird gold line on the back--it looks like someone drew on the tire with a gold Sharpie. I wish the folks who upcycled it in India had taken into account the asthetics and not used that part of the tire, as it really does distract from the awesomeness of my bag and I have had to explain to people that no I didn't write on it myself.

  • great bag

    Great bag, really well made. Its very stiff because its thick rubber so its hard to stuff it full like I am used to doing. The stiffness makes it easier to find my keys though. Very cool looking and sturdy bag.
