Cute bags for interesting humans.
“A towel, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapors; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-boggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.”
― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy
This self-lined vintage-mint-green-terrycloth Poubelle is embellished with a soap bubble-inspired button and finished with a tiny yellow rubber duck charm.
Poubelle Bags are one-of-a-kind, 100% handmade accessories for carrying your stuff in style!
All standard-sized bags are fully-lined, approximately 8" x 4 1/4", with a card-sized 2 1/2" x 4" interior pocket, magnet closures and metal carrying rings - the perfect size for keys, a phone and ear buds.
These scrappy little bags are obsessive followers of slow fashion, based on the inalienable idea that fabulous fabrics and amazing accessories all deserve a second life.
Each Poubelle is hand-crafted in Albuquerque, New Mexico using reclaimed fabrics (70's bedsheets, antique baby clothes, retired showgirl costumes, thrifted T's and more!) plus vintage buttons, recycled and repurposed accessories and wiseass designs. Every bag is a unique and unrepeatable piece of art that you can put your stuff in!

Created by NYC neo-burlesque legend, veteran costumer and master tailor Nasty Canasta, Poubelle Bags began as a scrap-sewing pandemic project. The idea grew when Nasty was forced to clean out her sewing and craft stash (and raise funds) for a cross-country move, and finally became Totally A Thing when, distracted by the fabulous Southwestern landscape, her focus shifted from large-scale costuming to small, unique art/sewing projects.
Poubelle Bags embody the #DollarStoreShowgirl philosophy of fabulousness based on forced creativity rather than an unlimited budget; the "make do and mend" idea behind slow fashion; and Nasty's firm belief that there is absolutely no need in any circumstance to wear what everyone else is wearing.
Nasty Canasta is also the creator of Brooklyn Boas, handmade vegan tulle boas for showponies, drag artists, and other fabulous fancy people and pets.
