'Reclaimed Wreckage' loves the challenge of turning trash to treasure and creating a hobo chic fashion piece out of average household discards and recyclable materials.

I was amazed when I found the featured bag and could not believe that something so stylish and fabulous could be created with simple grocery bags. Sixty grocery bags strong and pulled tight with smooth black towing rope, Reclaimed Wreckage's handbag is made out of 100% recycled materials.

Being intrigued I browsed around her shop and found vinyl records, plastic bottles and seat belts transformed into the coolest accessories. You would never guess by looking at them what they were made of!
