Eco-Friendly Beau Soleil Bags | Reduce, Recycle, Renew Totes & Clutches

Posted on: Jul 29

Beau Soleil Beau Wash BagAnne Salvatore Epstein combines New York City style with her new sustainable outlook on life with her eco-friendly fashion label, Beau Soleil.

The Big Apple based designer found her priorities shifting when she became pregnant with her first child in 2005. And so she traded in her "overly excessive" existence for a much simpler one. She suddenly she found herself frequenting farmers' markets, living in a green building in mid-town Manhattan, and making more conscious and eco-friendly choices in her life.

This ethos led her to create her fashion line, which she named after her favorite oyster. It features handbags and apparel items made from sustainable materials including bamboo, vegetable-colored cottons, tencel, and recycled leather.

The line isn't simply a case of an eco-enthusiast wanting to spread her message. Anna Salvatore Epstein has some serious design cred after working with Marc Jacobs and IISLI.

Each Beau Soleil bag bears the words "Reduce, Recycle, Renew," so they're a handy way to spread the green word without even saying a thing. I'm particularly fond of the pale blue Beau Wash bag pictured, which is made from soft organic denim, but there are plenty of other purses to choose from including more large day bags, a clutch, and cosmetics cases.

These bags and the accessories are all available from the Beau Soleil website and selected stores across the United States.
