Been Sacks Shedquarters, Ammanford
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 Been Sacks 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!
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, Shoulder bags, Messengers and Bucket bags
