Eco chic: Hemp bags with elegant spring prints

By Bree Coven Brown / Special to Sunday Market

Uzura_300_0208Make your spring bag one that celebrates nature while being gentle on the earth.

Uzura Hemp Tote/Messenger Bags are made by Seattleite Shino Mikami, who screen prints the bags by hand with her original illustrations.

Each bag is made of pesticide-free hemp, lined with organic cotton duck canvas. Inside pockets hold your keys and phone, while a magnetic snap closure keeps them safe.

The strap adjusts from 26 to 48 inches, so it can be worn cross-body or over the shoulder.

$63–$78 at etsy.com/shop/Uzura and Sassafras (downtown)
