Eco Fab!

“I need one of those bags,” I said to Sherria as we watched the models cruise the runway carrying these intricately designed purses at the Elizabeth St. John Couture show at NOVA Fashion Week.

Sherria and I caught up with purse designer Cyndy Esty after the show and learned that each bag is hand-crafted  out of recycled materials in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

Purse designer Cyndy Esty donates some of the proceeds from her sales to local and global causes.

The "Change" purse was one of my favorite designs.

Purses range in price from $250-$1,200.

  1. It was great to meet you both at the NOVA – Elizabeth St. John Fashion show. BTW at least 20% goes back to help Duke Ellington Fund, NIH Children’s Inn, Boys and Girls Clubs of DC, Cancer fighting charities, MS, Autism and many more. I have a niche purse market using found or designed boxes made from sustainable or Recycled wood. Thanks again for your support and Love your site!Cyndy
