I love to be environmental, yet I haven't quite let go of the old suburban shopping impulse. I find being eco can create a form of cognitive dissonance that interferes with the joys of shopping and at times can distance me from my more mainstream girlpals. Brightly coloured, flower designs that are fun and casual. Plus, it's a girl thing, purses and handbags, accessories.
I was drawn to the colours of the wallets and was pleasantly surprised to find that they are made of recycled bottles. It made me think of plastic soft drink bottles in a different light and might be a step towards eco shopping in a new way.
Wow, they are incredible. The whole upcycling phenomenon is incredible.

I really loved your bags and the concept that were made from recycled materials was fantastic. I bought a back pack for one of my young friends for her 21 st birthday. I then vowed to save and buy a handbag for myself which I did. However after enjoying it for a few months I can no longer use it because it has frayed along the zippers and looks really tatty I am very disappointed. I cannot afford to pay $80 dollars for a bag that has such a short life span and now needs to be recycled.

Do you have any idea who makes Lily Bloom purses? I have been searching the internet high and low and cannot find any info about the company.
