So far I have yet to own anything wearable made of burlap. Although these Burlap Tom’s rank high on my list of things to invest in. Burlap is a tricky fabric, it sheds and isn’t super soft. While I think a cute summery skirt made of burlap could be awesome, or maybe reminiscent of the skirts I wore in Catholic High School that might have been made of the worst and most uncomfortable fabric ever, a bag is probably much more practical. This bag I came across is incredible in multiple ways. A. It is made of burlap. B. It is made of a recycled coffee sack so it is good for the environment. And C. It gives back. How you ask? It is made by Artisans in South Africa and you purchase it through a company (more on them later) that helps create jobs for people in rural communities around the world. So needless to say, I want this bag.
Or maybe this bag:
