Everybody who’s anybody has stopped using plain old plastic or paper and are now using the trendiest totes in town. Today, I have an adorable tote for you.

Made by Kanazu Sen-i, the totes are made from Polylactic Corn Fibers. Kanazu Sen-i’s environmentally friendly bags are made using mostly plant origin materials, which are 100%, biodegradable and do not produce hazardous gases when burned. Materials include a base fabric of polylactic corn fibres, natural cotton threads and buttons made of biodegradable plastic. The fibres are pleated or scrunched to give elasticity, allowing the bags to be folded for easy storage. Dimensions: 14″ x 13.75″ x 4.75″
