This old suit…

I’m all about ecological design…  in all it’s various sundry forms.  This particular shot happens to be of my bag (a laptop bag I’m using as a purse).  It’s a Rumah Kampung bag, the ABBY flatpack.  The designer takes old mens suits and repurposes them into gorgeous bags and purses.  Really beautiful work.  I’ll be highlighting them in an upcoming piece at Pure Greenius (http://www.puregreenius.ca/) so I suppose this is a bit of a sneak peek.  LOVE my bag!
