The Been Sacks bags are all made from a recycled coffee sacks. The bags come in various shapes and sizes and no two bags are the same. Often the size and type of the bag is designed around the details on the coffee sack. Other materials are then added to provide decoration, lining and straps. As much of the material as possible comes from recycled items like quilts, curtains and old clothing. The materials include cotton, linen, wool, leather and sometimes synthetics. Anything that would otherwise be turned to rags, I try and use!.
