Bottletop Bags

I've written many times that I like to write and I support ethical companies that are concerned about up- cycling and recycling  and that they care for communities helping, through a job, people and projects.
Bottletop is one of these companies.
These fantastic clutches and strap bags are the latest addiction to the Bottletop family, this is the Painted line where recycled ringpulls have been hand painted and stitched in Salvador Brazil where the company has got a workshop and local women are trained and can support their families. These Painted line comes in neon colours like green, pink orange or black.
This is a part of the Leather line, the ringpulls are stitched to create a kind of hem and the leather comes from Bahia and it is one of the softest leather I ever touched. 20% of the profit from the bags sold goes to the Bottletop Foundation that uses contemporary art and music to raise funds and helps in projects such teenage health issues. The Bottletop Foundation supports thousands of young people with education projects in Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, Brazil and here in Great Britain.
And here the coloured part of the Leather line with buttersoft leather in powder pink or deep blue and tan. Designed by Vincent Du Sartel  who worked before with Louis Vuitton and Loewe as Creative Director, these gorgeous bags will be seen and recognised by everyone. The trademark ringpull will work better than any visible logo.

And last but not least the Silver Line where the ringpulls are covering entirely the bags. They look heavy, but I've tested them, they are not, they are just striking and new.
All the bags bear a name, there is a bag with my name as well in the present collection. What are you seeing now is the Spring Summer Collection 2013 so it will take a while before it will hit the shops but visiting Bottletop 's website, the current collection is there ready to be bought. The prices are very reasonable for a bag that has been hand made and that is involved in a charity project as well. Celebrities are starting to take note of these accessorises. names like Kate Moss or Livia Firth who is a great supporter of ethical fashion with her Green Carpet Challenge, are just a couple of VIP fans of this company that is only four years old and already has made  a great impact in the fashion industry.
