Trend Spy: Recycled Rice Bags

Cambodian rice bags are durable, colorful, eco-friendly and surprisingly adaptable to all sorts of goods. They are recycled into shopping bags, yoga mat totes, hampers, jewelry boxes, carry on luggage and more. Most of the products are also hand-made by disabled and disadvantaged Cambodian villagers, and several companies donate proceeds to the conservation of local resources.

Clockwise, from left:
Jewelry box @ Urban Outfitters, $15
Weekender totes @ Greener Grass Designs, $36
Cosmetic pouches @ Uncommon Goods, $22/set of three
