Deux Filles en Fil Makes Fold-Up Eco-Friendly Handbags

Posted on: Mar 13

If you're looking for a handbag that stretches your dollar further, consider the unusual accessories from Deux Filles en Fil.

The bags come as a kind of Ikea style flat-pack, ready-to-assemble in a variety of ways. These are the true origami bags, but with press-studs inside there are no craft skills necessary! There are many designs to choose from, and plenty of ways to wear each purse in the collection.

All accessories are made in Western France, an area which has faced economic hardship due to the closure of many local fashion factories. Although the bags are crafted from leather and textiles, creators Claire Batadiere and Florence Bourget do their best to minimize their carbon footprint. Deux Filles en Fil handbags are made from repurposed leather and fabric off-cuts left over from these now abandoned factories. Using local manufacturers and materials also helps Deux Filles en Fil minimize carbon and gas emissions.

Deux Filles en Fil handbags are available from selected European retailers and online at Ethic Design and ID Original.
