New Recycled Bag Tote Bags

New tote bags made from recycled plastic supermarket bags.

Recycled Bag Bags

Each tote bag contains at least 20 supermarket shopping bags, collected from friends and family and cut into strips to be used as a weft yarn.  I introduce colour through the warp strands.  This new batch is combining grey with the shine of the plastic – it looks like silver.  The blue and yellow stripes and fresh and clean.  These bags will be appearing at the Devonport Craft Market on May 3 (just in time for Mother’s Day!) and the Auckland Fair on June 14.

You can get your Recycled Bag Bag on ETSY.
