A stylish, new designer bag entirely made of all-natural, biodegradable materials has been released by the Dutch company reWrap, which is committed to making beautiful products according to the Cradle to Cradle (C2C) design principle.

The C2C framework is an innovative production method that models industry on nature's ecosystems, viewing biological and technical materials as nutrients and incorporating the infinite renewal patterns found in nature.

The reWrap Tree Bag, which took two and a half years to develop, is made from waste coconut husks pressed together with palm fibers and resin, creating a sturdy and durable exterior.

The inside of the bag consists of sundried rubber, which naturally deflects water, making the accessory completely waterproof. The handle and the clasp are made of FSC-certified walnut wood to fit the natural, earthy colours of the bag.

At the end of the Tree Bag's life, the item can be composted and used as a fertilizer. Moreover, the bags are made in a small workshop, which provides employment for people with disabilities.
