These tote's are the real thing. Made by my friends and Banner Creations in N. E. Minneapolis, out of a fabric that is recycled soda pop bottles. Should I say that louder? SODA POP BOTTLES!! You know, the plastic ones. ..
Nora, the owner, makes all of her employees rummage around on the streets at night, collecting used bottles... no, I'm kidding. I'm not sure how they get this fabric, but it's great. And durable. And then, the folks at Banner sew them together with such panache, well, as you can imagine, there isn't a finer bag to be had. And looks! The printing process really does my beautiul paintings justice. Bright, vibrant colors, that  you'll enjoy carrying over your arm or on your shoulder
And, they make great gifts. Get a dozen or two, to make sure when your invited to Aunt Emma's or Cousin Marcia's for the birthday party, that you have one available. You can tell them... I saw this bag, and, well, it was just you. I won't tell! 
In addition to providing them a wonderful, beautiful gift, you can feel good about the environmental attributes of the bags. Each bag has 2 designs on it. Order by the number in front of the pictures.
