Description

*NOTE: photos are examples only, this listing is for a bespoke item that has not been made yet. Please read description below for details. Photos are provided to give an idea of size, shape, and quality - not the exact product.


The WALRUS tote bag is handmade from recycled plastic bags fused together to form a strong, durable, waterproof fabric (note zip not waterproof). With a large internal volume, this bag is perfect as a day bag, small overnight bag, for picnics, or any other use. It is lined with a soft light blue cotton lining, which has 1 large open pocket on one side, and two smaller open pockets on the other to keep your phone, wallet, or sunglasses at your fingertips. The plastic shopping bags used on this bag are all 100% upcycled into this handy new bag made by kelly o. Each bag is unique – there will never be two exactly the same.

Dimensions: 450mm high x 350mm wide x 150mm deep/ 18in high x 14in wide x 6in deep
Straps are 30cm/ 12 in from top of bag to top of strap and are 5cm/ 2in wide.
Lining with 3 pockets.

MADE TO ORDER:
If you have a cupboard full of plastic bags that you don't know what to do with, turn them into your very own Walrus bag! If you purchase this product, I will contact you with information on where to send your plastic bags - you will need 21-24 thin polythene bags (if you'd like different colours, be sure to send 3 bags of each colour) - the kind you get from supermarkets. I will take some artistic license, so if there's something specific you have in mind (using a certain part of one bag in a certain place, etc) let me know when you send the bags. Regular shopping bags from supermarkets, shops, etc are great, they must be plastic.

If you want to get rid of even more bags while you're at it, I'll happily take donations! Just be sure to label or clearly describe which ones you want to use for your wallet!

As your unique WALRUS bag is not yet constructed, it will take up to 3 weeks to dispatch. If you need it sooner, please let me know and I will see what I can do.

PERSONALISE: Add a personal touch to your upcycled bag! Have your name, favourite word, number, or short message printed on your bag to make it extra special. Once you've added this bag to your cart, add a Personal Text item to your cart before checking out, and include the personal message you'd like printed on your bag in the notes at checkout, along with any other particular instructions (capital, lower case, location, etc). The Personal Text item can be found in my shop under the Personalise Section. Get in touch with any questions you may have before checking out.

GIFTS: To have this bag sent to someone special as a gift, be sure to provide their shipping address in the notes at checkout. If you'd like to send it gift wrapped, add the Gift Wrapping option to your cart separately to the product. Once you've added this bag to your cart, add your hand drawn made by kelly o Gift Wrapping item to your cart as well, before checking out. This can be found in my shop under the Gift Wrapping Section. Get in touch with any questions you may have before checking out.


All my upcycled plastic bags are made from everyday plastic shopping bags that end up in the rubbish heap, blowing down the street, getting stuck on the tube escalators, and worst of all polluting our oceans. This is a small step in helping to reduce the amount of waste we throw at mother nature by re-using 'rubbish' and making it into something desirable. One man's trash is another's treasure. 

I've named the different types of bags after the animals who are harmed by our throw away plastic bags. Help me save more plastic bags from damaging our environment by making this bag your new treasure.

I offer custom orders! There are listings in my shop for custom items. Just be sure to include a detailed description of your preferences in the notes to seller at checkout!

You can either send me your own collection of plastic bags to turn into a new personalised accessory, or if you have particular colours or themes in mind, I will try to find bags in my stock to suit. Note that I reserve the right as designer to alter or amend any request to ensure that the product is of sufficient quality. I also hold artistic license for any custom order, meaning it will still be designed by me, just with your preferences or materials at the heart of it.
