Everywhere you look, someone is talking about being “eco” or “green.”  But whatare they really doing?  Are they using earth friendly materials?  Or are they recycling?  Or are they using upcycled materials?

What’s upcycling, you ask?  It’s sort of like recycling, but instead of throwing the stuff away to be made into new items, they “trash” is made into something new, something better.  That’s what Maggie Bags does.  They take the waste seatbelting from the auto industry, and make it into purses, cosmetic bags, accessories, and other totes.  What’s even better than that, is that the Maggie Bags are really cute items.  They have modern, unique styles in fun colors.

The Cicily Tote is the perfect size for an everyday bag or purse.  With dimensions of 8 x 16 x 5, it’s big enough to carry your daily essentials, like a wallet, phone, and cosmetic bag, but not so large that it feels like you’re carrying half the stuff you own with you.  Cicily is also a handbag, with about an 8 inch handle drop.  Personally, I prefer a handbag, so this is perfect for me.   This allows you to carry the bag in your hands, or to slice it up your arm to your elbow, with ease and comfort.

The dimensions don’t matter at all though, if your bag is just a big black hole. Maggie Bags knows this.  That’s why they use a colored lining that lets  you see what’s in your bag.  Brilliant, right? In addition to that, there’s pockets inside that help you organize your bag.  There’s a cell phone pocket and an additional open pocket on one side.  This is great for your keys, a lip balm, or even a small bottle of hand sanitizer. On the opposite side, there’s a zippered pocket that’s great for things that you don’t always want spilling out all over.

One of the other features that I really love is the little feet on the bottom of the Cicily Tote.  This allows you to set your bag down without worrying about scuffing up the bottom, it getting dirty, and even helps with wet spots.  This is a feature that’s normally found on much more expensive bags.

Next time you’re looking for a new bag, think about a Maggie Bags.  They’re head turning conversation starters without breaking the bank.

    I would never have imagined that seat belts could be made into bags that look so nice. I like all the colors too. You really would not guess it was made of seat belts, just by looking at them.

  8. Cindi Decker says:

    This will be a very sturdy bag since it is made from the seat belt material. I like the colors too.

  9. Mahdi Martin says:

  37. What a clever way to upcycle. I love the design, and the bright colors.

  38. Julie Wood says:

    This Maggie Bag is very nice and I am shocked that it is made out of recycled seat belts. It sure makes this hand bag look pretty and the inside looks like silk.

  39. ellen beck says:

    These are such nice looking bags and I like all the features. Such a great pic you took too!

  40. What a great way to recycle things. I never would have guessed what they are made of. You know they have to be really strong made from seat belts. Really colorful ones too. The more we recycle things the less garbage we have to deal with on our earth.

  41. It’s hard to believe seat belts can be turned into something so adorable!! I heart the design, and the bright colors.
