Yes. These incredible holders and bags are made of recycled paper! Each piece is made from reclaimed cement bags fused to cotton cloth to increase strength and durability. Then, the paper is coated with nano liquid glass (an environmentally friendly coating) that makes the paper water resistant – just to make it that much more practical! The products are all hand-sewn by a team of skilled craftspeople in South Africa. Unique, stylish, practical and eco-friendly—a hard-to-beat combination.
