Forestbound Love

As Earth Day is quickly approaching, I wanted to share these beautiful bags I found on ETSY that are made from completely salvaged materials.  I adore the vintage look of them and I think they would be so appropriate for a sunny day meandering through a flea market or farmer’s market.  “Forestbound” is the name of the shop and she makes beautiful one of a kind recycled carryalls.  The carryall I have my eye on is made from a 1940’s grain sack with a blue and white ticking lining and a fabulous leather strap.  It is beyond my budget at $190.00 but I do have a thirtieth birthday on the horizon.

Earthbound also has a great tote bag made from WWII era military duffel bag and has a full leather bottom.  I’m a sucker for army green.  She spends a lot of time finding different materials that go into each bag, so much love goes into each creation.

If you are lucky enough to live in San Francisco, there is a small collection of Forestbound bags and pouches at Small Stump/Studio Choo on 262 divisadero street.  Otherwise click here for the ETSY site; these bags do seem to go quickly.
