INSTAGRAM - meet me thereI don't do sponsored posts. I don't buy many products because I believe we already cause too much destruction to the environment by creating huge quantities of waste. Our over consumption of clothing and accessories is one of the biggest contributors to waste and environmental damage. However I do choose to replace my old, no longer usable items (such as clothes that are only suitable for becoming cleaning cloths) with items that are locally and ethically made and preferably recycle or upcycle existing items. @peaceroaddesigns custom made bags upcycle gallabiya dresses worn by local Bedouin women. Whatever I suggest for a design is incorporated, but every time I find designer Bronwyn has included some useful or beautiful feature I didn't anticipate. This makes each bag perfect. My first tote I bought 6 years ago and it is still going strong but looking a bit tired so I keep it for the local beach and veggie shopping. I requested this tote for city use and traveling, I wanted something more glamorous and with a zip opening (which the older tote doesn't have) for security when traveling. The neckline of the gallabiya forms a large outer pocket on one side, open so I can slip books and maps in easily (photo 2). My old leather card holder was years past its prime, so I also asked for a wallet that in addition to ATM cards has a partition for my passport and a comb and a pocket for my mobile phone. This wallet will double as a clutch for evenings out. As always, I'm delighted by these handmade beauties and had to share them with you. @peaceroaddesigns @peace.road.dahab #peaceroaddesigns #peaceroad #baglove #bags #accessories #ethicalfashion #recyle #upcycle #reuse #travelaccessories #tote #wallet #travelbag #sharm #sharmelsheikh #redsea #sea #sunrise #southsinai #egypt #trover #lonelyplanet #canonme #everydaysharm #roamegypt #discoveregypt #everydayegypt #thisisegypt #myegyptGolden days. #sharm #sharmelsheikh #redsea #sea #sunrise #southsinai #egypt #trover #lonelyplanet #canonme #everydaysharm #roamegypt #discoveregypt #everydayegypt #thisisegypt #myegypt #sunrise_sunsets_aroundtheworld #womanDay begins...early swimmers. #sharm #sharmelsheikh #redsea #sea #sunrise #southsinai #egypt #trover #lonelyplanet #canonme #everydaysharm #roamegypt #discoveregypt #everydayegypt #thisisegypt #myegypt #sunrise_sunsets_aroundtheworld #swimming #snorkelingBeach company. #sharm #sharmelsheikh #redsea #sea #sunrise #southsinai #egypt #trover #lonelyplanet #canonme #everydaysharm #roamegypt #discoveregypt #everydayegypt #thisisegypt #myegypt #sunrise_sunsets_aroundtheworld #cat
