Rais Case x Sun Bum Recycled Bags

Our Encinitas concept shop is pretty much a museum of "one of a kind" Sun Bum items. From the one and only SB bowling ball to the SB toaster, from Lisa's hand-dyed bags to Surfy Birdy's prints, we're always trying to bring in and create stuff we LOVE.

So naturally for "Plastic Free July", we wanted to try and get Julie Ellis to make one of her awesome Rais Case bags for us.

Julie makes the most insane handbags out of reusable plastic waste. They're amazing.  And when she came over, she not only made us custom bags but showed Lisa how easy it is.

A little raw plastic waste + ironing and you've got a zipper bag made out of recycled plastic waste.

Big love to you, Julie!
