How cool looking are these pop top handbags by Escama Studio? A co-worker told me about them today (hi Sue!) and I just had to share. Each bag is made from post-consumer recycled pop tops and adorned with the signature of the person who made it. You can then go online to Escama Studio, see the artist's profile, and even send a thank you note...
"The artists work in co-operatives located outside of Brasília, Brazil. The groups offer women and men in the community a means to earn a living wage through handicrafts and provide a setting where friends are made and self-esteem is regained."
How cool is that?
