I am always on the lookout for new and unique fashion and style items.  One of my greatest joys is having a totally unique item that I won’t see everywhere else.  While some people are into that cookie-cutter look, it’s not for me. 

That’s part of the reason I love Maggie Bags!  These bags aren’t just unique and not like anything you find in a normal store, they’re eco-friendly!  Yep, that’s right – they’re made from reclaimed seatbelt webbing.

What is reclaimed seatbelt webbing?  It’s seatbelt webbing that has been rejected by automobile manufacturers.  I don’t know about you, but if I’m in an auto accident, I want to survive, so I’m glad they have these stringent requirements.  But what do you do with all the components that don’t meet the safety standards?  If it’s seatbelt webbing, you make bags and purses with it.  Crazy, right? 

I received a Maggie Bags Campus Tote in Fall Leaves.  Remember when I said that I liked unusual items?  That goes straight into colors, too.  The colors are fall-like, but they’re not only for autumn.  With colors like chocolate brown, burgundy, red, taupe, grey, orange, and green, this bag goes with so many things.

Checking in at a good-sized 14w x 7h x 11L inches in size, the Campus Tote is large, but not so big that you couldn’t use it as an everyday bag.  There are three smaller interior pockets – two are open, one has a zipper.  These are perfect places for your cell phone, pens, and lip balm, what have you.  You still have quick and easy access to them. 

The straps were a great length, and I thought that the drop was a fabulous length; it was comfortable to wear without being too long or too short.  Even though the straps weren’t padded, I didn’t find them to be uncomfortable when wearing the bag.

I also love that the Campus tote has feet on the bottom.  There are two reasons why I think this is such a fabulous feature.  The first is that it adds something unexpected, and makes a bag look expensive.  Second, the feet help to keep your bag from getting dirty.   

The Campus Tote from Maggie Bags will make a great conversation piece.  That’s just what I like in a fashion piece!

    I never would have imagined that seat belts could be used in this way and look so nice.

  13. I love these bags! I love the feet, I love the re-use of the seatbelts and I love how sturdy they look. I love the bright colors and the interior pockets too. My favorite is the butterfly bag but I also love this one.

  14. This is such a neat idea. I still regret not cutting out the belts of the first car my husband and I had and using them as bag straps.
