Handbag Discovery - Mona B

recycled tent material, leather embellishments, Mona B, Crossbody bag, shoulder bag
As I mentioned in a previous post, I am really getting into boutique finds like my Simply Noelle bag. Another find while visiting Sunriver, Oregon is this Mona B. bag.

In Sunriver Village there is this cute little store with all kinds of goodies.  I could have spent so much money there but I was drawn to this bag.  The salesperson shared with me what ended up being the deciding factor.  The bags are made from recycled tent material.  It took me back to my childhood camping with my dad, setting up the tent and listening to the rain falling on it.  At that time I never thought about what happens when tents lose their ability to keep you dry inside.  

I love it when items are recycled rather than added to our landfills.  In this case, the tent material makes a very cool, unique handbag.  Each one is one of a kind because of the wear of the material.  To kick it up a notch, it is embellished with genuine leather.  Again there are plenty of pockets.  One on the front with two zipper pockets and one on the back.  My iPhone 7 Plus fits in either spot.  Inside there are two more device pockets and a zipper pocket.  The inside material is a little more lose compared to that of Simply Noelle, but this is a different style of bag.  This is your weekend, out and about bag.  You can wear it as a cross body or put it over your shoulder.  Love that flexibility.

This bag did cost $74.  A little more but it is genuine leather (and smells so good).  

You can find Mona B. bags on their website as well as Amazon.
