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. Conserve started as a fledgling recycling project but quickly adapted to confront the biggest challenge it was facing: what to do with the thousands of plastic bags that could not be composted or recycled locally. Each bag supports fair wages for workers and reduces waste in India.
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.

and loved being eco-friendly and recycled. I use it for galas with a black suit and big red/organge flower on my lapel.Read More
Was so excited until I took the purse out of the bag looking at it, it started falling apart where it was glued. So disappointing because I love to use recycled itemsRead More
I abuse purses. Probably because I don't like them. Whatever the reason, my purses look nice for about the first 2 and a half hours after I purchase them, at which point I inevitably place one on top of used gum, drop it onto newly laid pavement, or set it within my dog's reach. So you can imagine my delight when I spotted one made out of TIRES for crying out loud, as it if were made just for me. I'm a little surprised it didn't show up in my Facebook feed, Gmail sidebar, and while watching Vampire Diaries on Hulu. TIRES, PEOPLE! And low and behold, she's a keeper, everything I was hoping for and more. Beautiful (no one has yet to guess what it's made of when I ask), incredibly well-made, seriously durable - I'm tempted to run it over with my car just to see what happens - and with the perfect amount of space for my 6 seldom-used lipsticks and all the receipts I forget to throw away. Now if they would just make a matching wallet, I might actually look like a woman with her act together! Ok, not really. But still. Wallet, please! Great purse, is what I'm saying. Great purse, great price. LOVE.Read More
Quality and size of the handbag was as described. The red cutout flower detail is very pretty and the bag is well made. Shipment arrived quickly. Only reason for 4 star rating instead of 5 is that the interior lining was black, not the red shown in picture on website but I will definitely be keeping this bag.Read More
This bag is more than I expected. It is soft and strong and beautiful. The fact it is from "fair trade" makes it even better. It was made in India using receycled tires, and the "stuffing" inside the purse is news paper from the Hindu Times. I know that is neither here nor there, but it tickled me somehow. Thanks O.Read More
I get a lot of compliments on this purse and people love the fact that it is made from recycled tires (I like to tell people that it's not my everyday purse that I just use it as my spare); def a conversation starter, ha ha. My only complaint is that it is a little on the small side.Read More
The style is darling and is just a very interesting piece. However, I didn't see anyone else remark on this so I'm not sure if theyhad the same problem or not. It has a very strong tire odor that won't quite go away. I guess I should have thought that it would but its not very pleasant. I've been leaving it setting out hoping that it will fade and it has to some extent. Any suggestions? Other than that I really love the style and craftsman ship.Read More
When this bag arrived it smelled like a GoodYear store; however, the smell is gone completly after a month of using the purse. I get a lot of compliments, the bag has a nice shape and perfect size for me. It is a little heavy due to the material, but hey, this is what you can expect from a recycled tire. I recommend for everybody who wants something special and don't cares about brand names.Read More
I love this purse. This is my 3rd bag in this shape. I have two other made from recycled plastic bags. It really is an attention grabber. You can fit everything you need plus more in this bag and they even included a pocket for your cell phone. Love it!Read More
