Recycled Newspaper Clutch
Size: 11.5" long x 6" wide x 1.5" deep
Who says print is dead? This charming little eco bag, just right for afternoon cocktails or a night out, is made from 100 percent recycled newspapers – the illustrated fashion section, of course. Ten layers of newsprint treated with a biodegradable cool-press laminate make the clutch (resembling a folded-up tabloid) sturdy and water resistant. Grommet closure keeps your necessities secure. Design will differ from bag to bag. Clean with a damp cloth. Handmade in the USA.
When designer Connie Carman worked at a hotel where guests receive a newspaper every day, she was dismayed by how many papers wound up in the trash and began experimenting to see what she could do with them. She now makes a number of useful items from discarded dailies.
