Bringing Back Burlap: Chic Coffee Shoulder Bags


You certainly can’t leave for work without downing a few cups of java, but why stop there? Wear your caffeine addiction with pride!

Wren, a hand-made South African label, makes very fashionable bags out of coffee burlap sacks.The bags are currently available on Wren’s Etsy site, but an online shop is coming soon.

“Burlap?” you say, “isn’t that for hippies?” Not anymore, thanks to these chic looking totes, laptop bags and duffels that will make you take your coffee obsession to a whole new level. Just make sure to team with a reusable mug and not one of those pesky, disposable things. You wouldn’t want to be labeled as an eco-uncaring fashionista, now would you?
