At NK Bags we have designed our purses and totes with a environmental mind.

Since the plastic is already here to stay, we have come up with a way to recycle it in a creative and practical way.

Our beautiful, one-of-a-kind, hand crocheted purses and totes come in a variety of colors and styles.

 
Did You Know?
Approximately 1,000,000,000,000 plastic bags are used worldwide each year

Only 1% get recycled yearly

Scientists estimate that it takes between 100 and 1000 years for a plastic bag to totally degrade in a landfill but no one really knows because they have only been used commercially for about 90 years.
It is estimated that hundreds of thousands of birds, whales, seals, sea turtles,and farm animals are sufficated each year by plastic trash bags which litter our trees and oceans, when they are mistaken for food.
At NK Bags empowering women is another concern. Each bag is hand crocheted by the women of the Xhosa tribe of South Africa.

By providing jobs and a steady income for these women, they can use their craft to help support their families and enter the formal economy.

At NK Bags we have designed our purses and totes with these environmental issues in mind. Since the plastic is already here to stay, we have come up with a way to recycle it in a creative and practical way.
