From trash to treasure, this restaurant-sized plastic rice bag was destined for the dump. But local artisans like Hser (pictured) have learned to create kitschy and cute baby bibs out of them. What we love about these bibs is that they are adorable while being responsible to the environment and the woman who made them.

Hser is a member of the Karen hill tribe, originally from Burma. She escaped persecution to receive political asylum to live in Austin, Texas. Proceeds from the purchase of this bib go back to Hser to help her family establish a new life in the United States.

The main part of the bib is approximately 11" wide x 14.5" tall. The pocket is about 3.75" tall. The bib has a velcro closure and can be worn with the pocket facing in or out. It is designed to fit babies and toddlers ages 6 months to 3 years old. The bib (and baby) in the last photo are to demonstrate the bib's scale and size and are not for sale.

Since all of Hill Country Hill Tribers products are produced by hand, each piece is unique and may contain imperfections that add to its character. To learn more about the education and economic development work of Hill Country Hill Tribers, visit www.hilltribers.org.
