{look good while doing good: the market bag}

. . . few things are lovelier than the chance to give back, and so, quite adore the market bag from california-based apolis activism: produced by saidpur enterprise, a non-profit in bangladesh, the market bag is handcrafted by from locally grown golden jute and vegetable tanned leather reinforced with antique nickel rivets, and finished with a waterproof lining and an interior pocket, perfect for summer saturday mornings picking up bouquets and baguettes . . .

My boyfriend always comments that most of my purchases are not practical...and I've tried to explain to him that it is intrinsically impossible for me to purchase any item solely based on practicality...it must be beautiful too. And here we have the perfectly beautiful grocery shopping bag {ahh, angles singing} Thanks a bunch!
