Garment of the Week: Tela Bags

Not quite a garment, I’ve become rather taken with Tela Bags, a Portuguese eco accessories label recently exported to the UK. Launch back in 2006, Tela pride themselves on transforming trash into trends, designing bags for the fashion conscious and eco-friendly, recycling discarded PVC banners, left over newspapers, magazine covers, and even linoleum floor coverings. Individually hand-cut and crafted, each Tela bag combines innovative eco-friendly materials with witty design, incorporating acid hues, bold prints and geometric shapes into their chic range of handbags and stationary.
Prices range from £10 to £200, and are available both online and at a number of nationwide stockists.
