Ummm if anyone hint-worthy is reading, how cool is this bag (Mother’s Day, Mother’s Day)….

It’s from Bottletop and yep you guessed it, it’s made from well – ringpulls actually.  I like a style statement.

It’s called a Luciana bag and just launched this month from Bottletop who are a charity.  And I just read on their website that it’s been featured in Vogue, I knew I had a good eye…should definitely have been a fashion designer.

All proceeds from sales go back into Bottletop working to help alleviate poverty and empower young people.

The bag making program provides great opportunities for the women working in Brazil who might otherwise be forced to work as maids or turn to prostitution.

Check out the very cool Bottletop online shop for the Luciana and other bags, resist if you can…!

  1. eheheh, I once made a sun hat out of ringpulls. Problem was that it was incredibly heavy to wear.

    • I made a high heeled shoe out of coke cans when I was at art college, looked great, not very comfortable though! Buckle was a ring pull!!!

  2. ha, how cool is that!
