It's easy to stay in the know with our Recycled Plastic Anarkali Handbag, made from recycled plastic bags! The tough plasticized fabric makes this accessory perfect for everyday use and for withstanding whatever the elements bring, just like the resilient women who make them! These handbags are made from the daily Hindi Times imprinted on a material made from recycled plastic bags gathered from trash heaps in east New Delhi by Conserve India, a non-governmental organization (NGO) on the cutting edge of both environmental issues and women's fair trade. That's a lot of good baggage for one cute bag!

March 12, 2014 - I have had my Anarkali Handbag for a month now, shipping was really fast. It's the perfect size for me. I like the strap length, the size & shape, that it has a zippered closure & that it has form. The 4 little feet are a great touch. All of these assets are what make me love it so I hate to add a but. But the black binding that holds the zipper to the rest of the bag is peeling a little & there is a crinkle on the side that seems to be where the finish did not bond fast. I will keep this bag & continue to use it,hoping it will last a very long time. C.Beaver, Savannah, GA

Artisan: Conserve India

Artisan Conserve India

Over a decade ago, Anita and Shalabh Ahuja left their comfortable life and careers to launch an environmentally savvy idea that helps reduce trash in the city while helping poor women find opportunity. With their life savings and extreme dedication, the couple launched an amazing concept that started as a 'green' project but quickly developed into much more. Conserve India creates purses and other products from recycled plastic bags gathered from trash heaps and is a source of hope for low-caste women who are desperate and homeless, giving them the opportunity to grow through education and employment opportunity. Conserve now employs and empowers over 300 low-caste women who were without employment opportunities before the non-profit group was established.

Conserve has developed an impressive system of production for their products. Women gather shopping bags from the dumps of New Delhi and bring them back to the shop where the plastic is thoroughly cleaned, dried, and then fused together by a process developed by Shalabh. The fusion process creates a durable fabric that is sewn into an array of accessories ranging from bags to day planners.

The women of Conserve have refused to leave their lives to fate. In India's extreme poverty, many are forced to sift through the rubble to find shelter or food to survive. Conserve has created some hope amongst that urban waste; because of Conserve, many of these women now have a greater potential for a better living, an education and a new life.
