This creative recycled materials tote is designed to double as a diaper bag. The functional, eco-friendly bag is a 16.5” cube, created from repurposed truck tarps and is hand painted in Brazil by eco-artist Gabi Goncalve

Once the truck tarps are cleaned, they are hand painted and decorated with scrap cottons and other fabrics. The signed Maria Buzina bags include a special message from the artist in her native Portuguese. 

The $200 truck tarp totes are very popular and because they are handmade with recycled materials.
