Check out these 5 luxurious and eco-friendly fall fashion must haves! 1. Rossie Recycled Tire Purse This recycled tire purse called Rossie, created by Uca Ruffatti from El Salvador, snatched up the 2009 Award for Excellence in Product Design by the Fair Trade Federation. This group has a delicious line of eco-friendly bags, and they feature all black design or black with pops of red and indigo. This particular recycled purse is perfect for Fall, and can be used with jeans and a sweater or with a skirt suit and heels for the office. Versatile and beautiful, this is a definite fall must have. 2. Terra Plana Janis Boots These beautiful boots are created by Terra Plana, a company focused on using sustainable and recycled materials in their shoes. This particular boot is created from vegetable tanned leather, recycled quilts from Pakistan and Bangladesh, and a recycled rubber heel. It's a mid-calf pull on boot with no zippers or buckles, and is the perfect accessory for fall. These boots can be paired with long skirts or slacks, but look especially great with a pair of comfortable jeans. This must have boot has a pop of color on the back, adding warmth to any ensemble. 3.
