Greener Living- My Orla Kiely shopper tote bag from Tesco

Whilst doing some shopping in my local Tesco's this evening, on the way to the checkout I noticed this lovely exclusive range of reusable bags designed by Orla Kiely.

The first thing I noticed about them were the patterns-anyone who is aware of Orla Kiely knows these are so distinctive of her work.

The bags are 'juco', which is a material technology that combines the strength and natural properties of jute with the finishing and texture of cotton fabric-in other words a tough, hardwearing and stylish reusable bag, ideal for your weekly shop, or as a general tote bag for work or at the weekends.

I chose this design, the other two were in stock below too:



The other great thing about the bag was the price-only £4!! My bottle of rose wine cost more!

The limited edition bags were made to raise money for Tesco and Orla Kiely's chosen charities-CLIC Sargent and The Royal College of Art, with 50p from each bag sold going to the charities, the money divided equally to each charity.

I believe these bags have been in-store for a few months now, but may not be in each and every store, so if you do see them I would snap them up-certainly one of my favourite designer and high street collaberations of this year!!

Check out Greener Living from Tesco- you can pick up some great ideas and tips on being more greener and being aware of your environment.

What great bags! I'd have a hard time choosing between the first two you show here....

And black jackets are wonderful. I liked seeing the variety in your previous post and am glad you're "back"!

I've had the blue one (from the Tescos local to school) a couple of months but I'd have much preferred the orange one which they didn't have! I was really happy when I saw them! Oooh, which Tescos did you get the orange one from? Barkingside, Barking??

Superb! I love a 'bag for life' (useful for carrying books at work as well as shopping) especially if they have nice designs.

Have you seen the Orla Kiely tops in Uniqlo? I bought a vest- good value (£14) and lovely designs.
