It's tough to be fresh with mundane material -- just ask Steve Harvey, as long as you're prepared for an explanation that inexplicably ties in the hilarious differences between men and women. Somehow making burlap cool: ApRi.
From an eco-conscious Providence duo, ApRi (April + Rich!) hand-stitches a legit assemblage of upcycled burlap wallets, belts, and accessories from coffee bean sacks in a Rhode Island "pet- and smoke-free area" -- what, now you can't fondly stroke peoples' heads in restaurants either?! Ughh, whatever, here's the goods:
Belts: Rocking a sweet gunmetal clam shell buckle, these puppies are purportedly "great for any day and type of pants" -- meaning they've heard about sweats, but they're about to get 'em!
Wallets: Wicked-thin bifolds boast cash & dual card pockets along w/ colorful, original screenprints that say things like "Quality" or "Brazil", further assuring that they're the Rio deal.
Miscellany: Cop a Coop-approved tote bag, or one of their super-hippy coffee coozies, which fit most disposable cups/ beer pints, and will help you say goodbye forever to cardboard sleeves, though not before some break-up sex -- man, isn't it funny that that always happens?
