Bags Made From Recycled Materials That Are Stylish and Ethical
Discover some of the chicest totes and handbags made from recycled materials below. These labels have consciously designed their bags to be both stylish and good for the planet. They show us that there is no need to compromise on aesthetics when supporting sustainable and recycled fashion.

High-tech nylon, created from recycled plastic bottles, is used for most of the bags you see here. This fabric is water-resistant and lightweight, making these sustainable bags perfect for busy lifestyles.

Nylon isn't the only recycled textile used for these bags. The Paravel best-selling canvas duffel bag and weekender tote, pictured, are made using the label's signature Ecocraft Canvas which is created with a combination of recycled plastic water bottles and natural cotton fibre.

For a designer look, Italian brand Themoire's collection of clutch bags are made exclusively from a combination of reused, recycled, and biodegradable materials. A Themoire bag's lining, nylon thread, and packaging all use 100% recycled materials.
