While all of you continue to collect your designer Coach, Louis Vuitton, and Dooney & Bourke bags, I’ve been building my collection with candy….candy wrapper bags, that is! I am actually surprised these have not taken off more than they have, so here I am to give this designer the proper credit! Made from all recycled materials, these bags come in everything from candy & gum wrappers, news paper,  soda bottle labels, magazines, flower seed packaging…etc. They are equivalent in price to a Coach bag and come in all different colors, shapes, and sizes.

 

I received my very first Nahui Ollin bag about 5 or 6 years ago by my mother-in-law.  She picked up a little clutch at a local boutique near her and thought it was perfect for me. Little did she know this would start my obsession. Since then I have asked for 2-3 of these for every holiday and birthday that passes. My collection is at about 15 now…and still growing! The attention I get when I go out is unbelievable.  I have some I use on a regular day to day basis, and then some that I use when off to a fancy event like a wedding, or a night out on the town. They are great conversation pieces, and make wonderful gifts too!  Go check out the whole collection at www.nahuiollin.com. Who knew “going green” could be so stylish?!
