Woven from 95% post consumer material, used grain sacks are collected, cleaned, ground and melted into rolls of recycled plastic, printed with Blue Q’s super fantastic graphics, cut and sewn into bags of all shapes and sizes available at boutique Katrin Leblond. 1% of the sales of the bag shown above supports the conservation work of The Nature Conservancy. Blue Q guarantees a minimum contribution of $100,000! This company is an example of one of our very few exceptions in which we felt the product and philosophy allowed us to accept importing the product and adding it to our mostly locally created collection.
You can carry your lunch in style for $12.
There is something really magical about popping this great big flower open in the middle of a rain shower. It instantly brings brightness to a gray day. I feel like I am offering a moment of surprise and wonder to the people around me when I pop mine open. I love the quality of the mechanisms: the smooth slide and satisfying pop as it snaps open. I love the feeling of the wooden handle and the scalloped edge finishing. I also love the price. At $37 dollars I think it is a steal for the numerous moments of fantasy it offers and for its fabulous halo of petals. Get yours at the store now! Quantities are limited and the demand is now.
