I was recently looking on the internet for new purses and come across a company called Maggie Bags. Now Maggie Bags are not your usual purse or bag, they are made from seatbelts. Before I tell you my experience with Maggie Bags here is a little about their company.
“The Maggie Bags legacy began with our parent company, Tennessee Webbing Products. Tennessee Webbing has kept millions of yards of narrow fabrics out of landfills since they began operation in 1991. Our desire to do our part for the environment by finding creative new uses for materials originally made for other purposes has been the Maggie Bags mission since the beginning. Maggie Bags launched in the spring of 2009 with a handful of retailers and a little online store. Today our products can be found in hundreds of retail locations across the Unites States, many online retail stores and in our own online store.
Maggie Bags are made using genuine automotive seat belt webbing built to meet government safety standards to protect you for the life of your car. Due to these high standards, millions of yards of seat belt webbing are rejected by automakers each year. Maggie Bags uses as much of this rejected seat belt material as possible in our products. Availability of rejected seat belt webbing can vary greatly therefore some webbing must be purchased new to meet the growing demand for our unique and stylish bags. However, our commitment to use repurposed seatbelt webbing whenever possible remains steadfast.
The Maggie Bags team is continually looking for creative ways to do our part for the environment. We are proud that the construction of our handbags is a simple cut-and-sew operation. This helps to minimize the environmental impact of manufacturing new materials and eliminates the need for typical recycling processes that consume large amounts of energy and other resources.”
Now for my review I chose the Butterfly bag in pink and chocolate. I must say it is beautiful. I love those two colors together. It has a beautiful purple lining that has a zipper pocket and a couple of other pockets inside it. But the great thing about this bag is there are pockets on the outside in the pieces that wrap around and they have little zipper pockets inside them also. There is so much storage room in this bag. I can fit all of my things plus a couple of books, diapers, etc in it. I really didn’t know what to expect because it is a purse made of seat belts but I am thrilled with it and I use it everyday. It is beautiful bag inside and out and I completely give it 5/5 stars. This company is doing something great to help the world and also helping women look fashionable at the same time. You can find Maggie Bags on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Polyvore.
