MY BUZZ

Individually handcrafted with love and respect for a planet that has finite resources, using recycled and repurposed material wherever possible. Been Sacks bags are made from old coffee bean sacks, hence the name, “Been Sacks”. £1 from the sale of every bag will be donated to the Woodland Trust. 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. Current Been Sacks bags available are; Totes, Rucksacks, Messengers, Shoulder bags and Bucket bags

MY BIO

My name is Sue and I run Been Sacks. I've been sewing since I was very young and love what I do. I make handcrafted bags are all made from a recycled coffee sacks. Other materials are then added to provide decoration, lining and straps. I believe we throw too much away so try to do my bit to recycle and reuse things that are often thrown away. I make handcrafted bags are all made from a recycled coffee sacks. 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!

MY BUSINESS TIPS
