Creating a Forest Thanks to Ananas!

Addictions aren’t all bad. Did you know that your addiction to stylish handbags can have an environmental benefit such as creating forests?! I recently stumbled upon Ananas, an eco-conscious handbag company that’s on a mission to do just that – rebuild forests.

The seed to create Ananas was first planted in designer Jennifer Lagdameo’s head while she was living in the Philippines. It was there where she observed the local traditional textile techniques and discovered a treasure of indigenous materials. Ananas started as a small collection of handmade handbags made from abaca, a natural plant fiber, and has since developed into a “retro-chic” collection of both leather and abaca pieces. Each Ananas creation utilizes organic materials from the Philippines such as coconut shells, mother-of-pearl shells, and polished native woods.

Lamdameo is continuously experimenting with new designs and materials in an effort to keep her collection unique and progressive. What’s cool is that all of her bags are handmade here in the Big Apple (NYC). Plus, for every Ananas eco-bag sold, Trees for the Future plants 10 trees in the Philippines!

Ananas has a grip on designing stylish eco-bags. Peep the jaw dropping “Coco” cork clutch or the hip “Nealy” in brilliant blue w/taupe. These eco-bags are just a few hot items from the Spring ’09 collection. Check out to see more of these gorgeous bags. Ananas can also be found in fine boutiques and select department stores across America and Japan.

Remember…the Earth gets greener and leafier each time an Ananas eco-bag is purchased!
