Aster + Sage $110 Messenger bag review & Giveaway (ENDED)

Winning comment is #258!


I am always fascinated by products made from recycled soda bottles. Since I adore eco friendly products, when I was given a chance to review aster + sage, I really wanted check out their Nina Messager bag in person.


The bag I received to review was the ice blue design (last one on the right). Personally, I love the design because I found it to be very modern and chic yet still causal at the same time. The color was darker than I expected, but that did not take away from how cute the message bag is. The outer material is 100% recycled polyester fabric (it's virgin material made from soda bottles and fabric scraps) and the applique is Sensuede, a microsuede made from 54% recycled polyester. The inner fabric is cotton pattern which varies in each bag. In my messenger bag, the lining is a cute black and white floral print. There is a small zipped pocket in the bag for my loose items. I use it for my camera. There is also a hook for my keychain inside the bag. when I open the top flap of the bag, there are 2 pockets. One of them has a rubber lining to keep things like my cell phone or sunglasses secured.

I love that the messenger bag is so light and it is my bag of choice whenever we have our weekly trip to Disneyland.

I am simply amazed by the bag itself. Can you imagine that something so cute came from recycled bottles?! I think more things should be made from recycled materials so that we can start generating less waste and use our resources properly.

You too can help the environment by carrying a cute bag made from recycled material. Looking chic has never been more eco friendly :). Please go to aster + sage and check out the great products the company offers.

Many thanks to Linda of Aster + Sage. She has generously offered a Nina Messenger bag as a giveaway prize to one of my lucky readers (winner may choose which design he/she likes). The bag retails for $110 and this giveaway is open to US residents only please.
