Unlike other designer handbags, the 'Tree Bag' is an ingenious sustainable bag made entirely out of tree byproducts. With a durable exterior and elegant design, you might never guess that this luxurious bag can be used as a form of compost after you are finished using it.

Despite its fully biodegradable design, the Tree Bag does not compromise on functionality or style. The outside of the bag is made from the fibers of coconut husks, which are pressed together with natural rubber. The revolutionary combination of materials comes together to form a naturally waterproof exterior for the bag. The clasp and handle of the bag are then made from walnut wood for a durable and comfortable grip. Finally, the sustainable bag is sewn together with wood pulp. Because each material is a natural byproduct, no actual trees are cut down for the production of the bags.

Not only is the Tree Bag eco-friendly, but the company is also socially conscious as well. Each bag is handmade in Amsterdam in a small factory that provides employment to those with a disability.
