For a while, carrying a Starbucks cup was a fashion statement, but now that the paper java mugs have become ubiquitous, coffee-drinkers looking to make a fashion statement are looking at new alternatives.
Behold the coffee cup corset. One of many alternative coffee cup sleeves found on Etsy, these were created by jenngee.
"A fabric coffee cuff is an Earth-friendly and stylish way to keep your digits protected from the heat," jenngee says. "It fits all standard paper cups offered by your favorite coffee hangout and can be reused over and over again. Just fold it up when you are done and pop it in your purse or pocket and it is ready for your next caffeinated treat. It can be used for cold beverages as well."
