The Recycled Floppy Disk Bag offered by the adorably named Etsy store Geeki Boutikki is a homage to the long-gone floppy disk that once ruled our computer systems. Now replaced by the much smaller, more efficient and overall better designed USB disk drive, the floppy disk has fallen to the wayside.

However, Roxanne Gibson of Monterey, California, has found a way to not only repurpose floppy disks, but also bring them back in style. The lunchbox purses offered through Geeki Boutikki are a great way to not only reuse the plastic and be eco-friendly through repurposing of technology, but also rock the geek-chic style of a floppy disk bag. At $35, these adorable crafty purses are an original concept worth the investment. Stats for Repurposed Tech Purses Trending: Older & Buzzing
