Check out this rad brand from Brooklyn called Fleabags. The ALICE bag is from their Spring/Summer 2012 campaign and was made with recycled fishing net. These bootstrapping ladies were inspired by an NPR story about a fisherman who was affected by the BP oil spill and had a bunch of excess net he couldn’t use, so the girls tracked him down and voila the ALICE bag was born.
MOTTO: Fleabags strives to create products that are as green as possible while maintaining high quality and covetable design. Fleabags are made with organic and vintage materials, vegetable-tanned and re-purposed leathers, and other parts all sourced in the USA. All silkscreens use water-based ink. Fleabags are made in the USA with good old-fashioned sewing.
