Harvey’s Seatbelt Handbags

January 5, 2009 at 4:10 pm 5 comments

We have a confession to make…we don’t carry handbags (we barely have anything to put in our wallets – filling a bag would be an effort in futility.)  However, that doesn’t mean we don’t ADMIRE STYLISH HANDBAGS, especially those made by Harvey’s Seatbelts.  Our good friend Mary turned us on to these after she’d bought one at the art museum.

Harvey’s began making these distinctive-design bags out of recycled seat belts back in the late 90’s.  Today they’re an All-American company making the bags by hand, keeping our landfills a little bit emptier, and creating eye-catching bags that are receiving rave reviews from users, art museums, and eco-geeks alike.

Check out the Treecycle line we’re carrying.  Start with the Boxy, 100% recycled (the seatbelts are recycled, the liners are hemp), hand-made, and printed with eco-friendly ink.  The Boxy is perfect for a date night or an evening out on the town.  Its size is perfect for a day planner and full wallet, still leaving room to fit a digital camera and sunglasses.  (Fully lined with hemp, 15″ handles that create a drop length of 7 1/2″, zip closure, two open pouch pocket, cell phone pocket, fits comfortably on your forearm, 4 metal feet; Dimensions: 10″L x 6″W x 6″H.)


Or if you’re heading to the beach or out of town, get the Harvey’s Large Boat Tote.  The bag is lightweight and sturdy for keeping your belongings close to  you.  (Horizontal seat belt design, fully lined in Harveys’ signature monogrammed lining, zip top closure, contrast Harveys embossed handles, light weight design, interior zipper pocket, interior pouch pocket, cell phone pocket; Dimensions 21″L x 6″W x 13″H.)


Perhaps you’re riding your bike or taking the bus around town?  Then get the Harvey’s Treecycle The Messenger or Mini-Messenger.  Both are great for containing your planner, keys, even a KOR Hydration Vessel as you motor around the town.   (The Messenger: Fully lined with a hemp lining with printed recycle logos, 56 inch adjustable strap, zip closure, cell phone pocket, interior open pouch pocket, zip pocket, key hook, two pen pockets; Dimensions: 14″L x 4″W x 8″H.) (Mini-Messenger: Fully lined with a hemp lining with printed recycle logos, adjustable strap that is 54 inches when fully extended, zip top closure, interior open pouch pocket, cell phone pocket, key hook to effortlessly find your keys; Dimensions: 10″L x 2″W x 10″H.)

    I must add to this that nothing had to die to make it. I am so glad for a stylish alternative to leather. I hate vinyl and plastic so this is perfect. I am so very glad for these bags. no more of those quilted cotton bags for me.
