A Bag that Will Go to the Ends of the Earth With You and Back

Made from FAIR TRADE coffee burlap sacks and ORGANIC hemp canvas that has been environmentally dyed black.

This is a bag that I don't think I can do without. And if I can? I don't want to.

The Wren has a lot of bags I don't want to live without though, and I particularly love the burlap sack designs that have been created and are for sell there. It's a terrific way to recycle and I find the colors and fabrics very visually appealing, not to mention durable!

The artist who created this wonderful bag, Wendren, is a surface designer by paper (aka textile designer or graphic artist) from Cape Town, South Africa who started designing bags in December of 2007 and has since then grown to include a label "Wren" an a rather large customer base, both on and off Etsy!

The Wren now sells not just bags of all sizes and shapes but clutches and pouches as well!
