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

I love aloha fabrics and I love vintage, aloha fabrics even more! I was thrilled when Westminster Fibers was licensed to reproduce Alfred Shaheen vintage handprints in 2010! Shaheen pioneered textile manufacturing in Hawaii and made the aloha shirt popular. He was a recipient of Hawaii's Lifetime Achievement Award and The Honolulu Advertiser named Shaheen one of Hawaii's most Influential 150 people (1856-present).

This fabulous top-handled bag is one of my new designs for 2012! It's handmade by me in my Hawaiian studio and showcases Alfred Shaheen's vintage handprint named "Tapa Tapestry" (please note vintage refers to the print, not the fabric. The fabric is newly produced by Westminster Fibers 2010). I absolutely love this retro print and its vibrant colors. It features pineapples, hibiscus and plumeria and the tapa graphics give it a tiki feel. Perfect as an evening bag for dressing up a pair of jeans or wearing with your favorite sundress. Ideal when traveling to your tropical vacation destination.

The exterior is fully interfaced with heavy-weight cotton twill for stability yet still maintains its drape, fashionable darts have been added to provide depth. The liner is made from 100% Kona cotton in Chinese Red and is interfaced with heavy weight fleece for substance and light padding. The interior includes a cell phone pocket that matches the bag's exterior. Espresso colored straps made from braided, waxed cotton featuring wood embellishments are attached via handmade loops. The button loop, handle loops and covered button are custom made to coordinate this unique bag.
