Eco friendly, repurposed & recycled burlap coffee and rice bag purses & handbags. Handmade in Hawaii. 'Hawaii's Fashionable Coffee Bags"-Hawaii Magazine.

Eco-friendly half moon clutch made from a recycled, burlap rice sack from Asia. I've fussy cut the bag so that the front and back feature portions of graphics and text from an authentic rice bag. The front boasts a beautiful phoenix - said to bring good fortune, while the back features portions of the rice's "Nutrition Facts".

The interior offers a cell phone pocket and is lined with an Alfred Shaheen vintage hand print from his Asian Collection, 'Geisha', in red. The zipper has been embellished with a porcelain bead with Asian script and red flowers. The matching strap is attached via a bamboo o-ring. A fun accessory on your date night in China town or your favorite sushi bar. Items photographed with pouch are for display purposes only.

Shaheen not only made the aloha shirt popular, but he pioneered textile manufacturing in Hawaii. Rather than being dependent on mainland textiles and their lengthy arrival time to the islands, he opened his own textile business in 1948. His bold and extraordinary prints were influenced not only by Hawaii but the Pacific Rim. His elegant and feminine dress designs and garments are highly coveted today. Shaheen retired and closed his business in 1988, fortunately his prints are licensed to fabric companies such as Westminster Fibers. He was a recipient of Hawaii's Lifetime Achievement Award and The Honolulu Advertiser named Shaheen one of Hawaii's most Influential 150 people. It's an honor to fashion bags from his beautiful vintage hand prints.
