A Unique Upcycled Approach to Style with Maggie Bags #NGGiftGuide

I have a true appreciation for people who think outside the box and create something beautiful and useful while helping the environment at the same time.  That is exactly what Maggie Bags are all about.  We appreciate the seat belts in our car and what they can do for us but have you ever thought about seat belts being fashionable?  They can be!

About Maggie Bags

Maggie Bags makes beautiful handbags, totes and messenger bags using seat belt webbing rejected from auto manufacturers.  Due to the creativity behind Maggie Bags, they have kept over 1 million yards of seat belt webbing from being dumped in our nation’s landfills and have re-purposed it to make eco-fabulous handbags. By using re-purposed materials they also help cut down on emissions caused from the manufacturing process.

The idea of recycling seat belt material into a line of handbags is a natural fit for Maggie Bags’ parent company, Tennessee Webbing.  Tennessee Webbing has recycled millions of yards of narrow fabrics since they began operation in 1991.

And did I mention they carry a Lifetime Warranty?  Sine every Maggie Bag is assembled of the same durable materials made to save your life in your car , it is guaranteed to be durable for life!  If your Maggie Bag should require repair due to a manufacturing defect, it will be repaired for free.

My Take

I received a Butterfly Bag and let me tell you I love it!  This is such an awesome bag.  It is big enough to hold everything I need to bring with me.  The black can be dressed up or dressed down and look great even with jeans.  It is very deep but also has five inside pockets for your smaller items.  The outside has two pockets on the front and back that would be perfect to slip your phone or keys into.  I appreciate that because once i put mine inside my bag they always seem to disappear.

One of my sister’s is expecting and I think this would make a perfect diaper bag without being a diaper bag.  Not everyone wants to give up style when they need to tote their baby extras with them.  My youngest is three and I still bring a change of clothes, medicine and other items along with me.  In my Butterfly Bag I have room for it all!
