bolivia bags by paulina reyes for kate spade new york

Gorgeous cotton and fiber handbags designed by Paulina Reyes for Kate Spade New York, presented at Design for a Living World, an exhibition of products by ten designers made using sustainable materials from around the world.

Each of Paulina’s bags is made using sustainable wood, cotton or jipijapa (palm leaves fiber) sourced from Bolivian forests. I’m especially fond of the bag with hand-carved wooden tiles. Simply stunning!
