We first discovered Jenny Hurth's bags at the East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse in Oakland. Then, later, at a craft fair in Berkeley.
Hurth's bags might just be our absolute favorite when it comes to this wonderful, and somewhat wild, reusable tote madness.
Hurth designs and hand sews all of her products from discarded banners that were otherwise headed straight for a landfill. We love the bold graphics, the vibrant colors, and the fact that no two bags are alike.
And, if you aren't in the market for a tote, Hurth has a number of other great items for sale.
There are laundry hampers ($65).
And portfolios ($10).
And a variety of other wonderful things made from "garbage."
All but a few items are available at JennyHurth.com.
