In honor of the approaching Earth Day, this week’s Sew & Tell guest is a designer who has found a solution for waste management through stylish design. Sheila Odessey weaves together cotton and strips of plastic grocery bags to create fashion-forward, functional handbags and totes! Her Spring 2013 Collection is full of bright colors, whimsical ginghams, and beach-friendly bags. On today’s show, Sheila will talk about her decades of experience as a weaver in New York’s Garment Center, how she got the idea to turn plastic waste into a chic accessory, the incredible range in “hand” of plastic bags, a few future plans for her line, and more.
Plus, Dane and I talk favorite bags and gossip about the latest on Mad Men, and there’s a mix full of brand new music from Akron/Family, Oberhofer, Houses, and more. Get ready for some seriously earth-friendly style, here on BTR!
