Too Cool for School

These chic pouches are the perfect fashion fusion, combining hip, night club colors with a "green" world view. Reclaimed plastic ribbon from vintage cassette tapes gets a fashion-forward reboot, woven with cotton cord to create the shimmering exterior. And those old-school materials are given new-school functionality, keeping valuables close at hand with a zippered top and a matching wrist strap. Made in India.

Hey there, voters! Ribbon and sparkles may not be that uncommon when it comes to clutches, but we've found a new way to glam-up the standard handbag. These pouches are not only fashionable, they're also eco-friendly. We love that they're made from reclaimed plastic cassette tape ribbon. It shimmers, it's sturdy and it's chic. Could you see your favorite fashionista carrying this handbag on a night out?

I've been looking for something like this! Shiny and from recycled material makes it even better!

While I do like how it's recycled, it's just too common for uncommon goods. I could find this for three dollars somewhere else. Dissapointed.

I want this now! My sister STILL carries a walkman and she is only in her late 20's! She would LOVE this because its made of cassette tapes. Perfect for the fashionable 80's baby that recalls the days before CD's.

You lost me because I thought I've seen these for sale in Claire's at the mall...You had me for a second when I read recycled cassette tape...You lost me at Made in India...

Cute, but cassette tapes are going the way of records. Can see many other uses for these pretty little pouches: carry lipstick, nail polish, etc...

They are cute and useful and glad they are from recycled tapes. Some folks don't even know what tapes are (or were)! Can't they be made in this country?

cute! but is it more durable than a cheapie purse you would get at Target?

Thanks for the question, Danielle! What makes this pouch special is that it is handmade using the plastic tape from actual cassette tapes. It's woven with a cotton cord to add durability.

Very cute! Great gift for the girlie girl. Sassy enough for a night out with the girls but cool enough for the teen crowd.

Cute gift for preteen/teen and made of recycled materials to boot. Got it coming and going :)Would rather it be made in USA, but at least it's not China...
