    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... Velcro closure, not so much.
      Verified Purchase

      I have had this bag for about 7 years as my work bag. I LOVE IT!! I am a RN and it is perfect for what I throw at it. it's very versatile, tough, and easy to clean, BUT... The velcro? That is the worst. It has worn out so now the bag is essentially useless. I know it is an inexpensive bag and I can easily buy another one, but knowing that the velcro is going to wear out, has me reluctant. If the flap was longer like a true messenger bag, it wouldn't matter, but other than that, this is a great bag!

    • Looked cool in the picture
      Verified Purchase

      This bag looked cool in the picture, but was way to heavy just coming out of the box, before you put a thing in it. I need to lighten my load, not max out my back. Great concept, lack of thought put into the weight.

      It is definitely large and well made but remember it is made out of recycled tires so it is heavy - I have a back problem and had to return it - definitely a cool idea

    • Awesome bag!!!

      Great bag! Easily the most unique, cool bag I've owned. This bag is everything I hoped it would, 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 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! rocks!

      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.

    • Excellent Bag for the Money
      Verified Purchase

      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! UPDATE 6/2016 I've purchased two of these since 2014 and although I love it, I am changing the rating because the lining completely disintegrates after a few months of use. I thought it might be a fluke with the first one, but the same thing happened on the second bag. The outside is of course great, recycled tires, but the inside, literally turns into shreds.

    • You should get it.
      Verified Purchase

      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.

    • I love to recycle.
      Verified Purchase

      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.
