Escama Studio transforms recycled aluminum into original handbags and clutches. What's especially fantastic about this Brazil-based cooperative is that it provides fair trade work for men and women. You can even write a thank you note via their website to the person who made your very own handbag. While you can find a variety of designs on their site, an exclusive design, the Escama Silver Clutch ($98), is available at Eco Citizen. We marvel that this extraordinarily classy clutch is made of tin can and aluminum pull-tabs.
