"Why did you choose this product?"
I love that this purse represents itself as expensive in initial appearance. The people who have commented had no idea what it was until they got closer. One person even asked if it was a Kors. The only couple of things that I would have liked better about it is if the strap would have been a little shorter. I'm 5'4" & when standing, the bottom of the bag hits at my knee. The only other thing is that the zipper is a little stiff when trying to close the bag. It has a decent size inside pocket with zipper which is good for keys so they don't get lost at the bottom. Overall, cool purse!...

Story Behind the Art:
The founders of BIO Imaginarte take the mantra 'Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle' to heart. The focus of BIO when it began in 1992 was educating Mexico in the need to protect and restore the environment. Working with women who live in several villages as an aspect of its education efforts, BIO helped designed bags and other functional products that are made from manufactured materials, reusing aluminum pop tops, rubber from tires and plastic billboards, as well as recycling paper and candy wrappers. The women are paid a fair price for each piece that they make, which promotes the beauty of handmade products while addressing one of the main causes of environmental deterioration in Mexico - poverty.
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.

Loved getting this for my artsey niece. She enjoys the unusual and thrives on new ideas. She is very into recycling things, and this one takes the cake! It is large enough but not huge. It is deep but not extreamly wide front to back. It's easy enough to get your hand in to get what you want but unlike leather or cloth won't open or stretch much wider than how it's made. It was a great gift for her & she loved it!Read More
I absolutely love this purse. I have seen them in museum shops for twice this amount. I am sorry though that the zipper is broken. Because this was the last one they had, I did not report it. Instead I sewed on a button clasp that works fine. The zipper is hidden so does not show that it is broken.Read More
Fun purse. Sure to get comments when I finally get around to using it. I seem to be developing a purse collection and they haven't all gotten the nod to come out of the closet yet. I'd seen these in stores for a much higher price, so was glad to see it on Overstock.com.Read More
Definitely turns heads. People ask about it all the time! Great size and very light-weightRead More
