New life

bayong covered in patchwork fabric scraps by What If Handmade
A lowly bayong—a coarse but sturdy tote bag made of woven palm leaves, commonly used while buying vegetables, fruits, fish, poultry and meats in fresh markets—is given a lovely coat that is just as environmentally friendly, made of a patchwork of wonderfully textured fabric scraps, by What If Handmade, a social enterprise that repurposes old and used fabrics.

I really like this bag. A nice mix of color and anything recycled gets my seal of approval!

Something as pretty as this would cost an absolute fortune here!
