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.

has a bit of a rubber smell, but it is made of tires... but is a great size and looks awesomeRead More
I am and have been enjoying this bag. I like the idea of recycling tires. Everyone admires the bag and surprised when I tell them it is made of tires.Read More
This shoulder bag is gorgeous--lots of compliments already. Great quality and fits well and comfortably on my shoulder. Some reviews said it smelled like tires, but only really if you put your nose up to it. Have only had it for a few days, but LOVE it so far!Read More
love it so much bought my girl friend one.Read More
This shoulder bag is really cool. It has the tire tube imprints on it and it is comfortable to carry over your shoulder. It's a great size and a really neat idea for reusing old tire tubes.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
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 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
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
Questions & Answers
Don't know exactly how much it weighs. It's not a light weight purse...kind of a clunky feel to it. I love it though...kind of a novelty type purse. I'm still looking for that perfect purse.
