OUTFIT | A Peek Into Kuwit’s Handmade Book Bags
Hold on – you definitely wouldn’t want to flip the page on this one. Just when I thought I’ve seen it all when it comes to upcycling – local brand “Kuwit” proves me otherwise. Behold, the “Nobela” clutch bag!
Ruby, zero visibility
We can all celebrate in relief that typhoon Ruby has left the country. It was a rainy afternoon, as you can see the puddles reflecting my OOTD, but reality continues. It was kind of chilly today, hence the ala grade school socks. What do you think?
KUWIT handmade book bags
Don’t you think it’s such a creative idea? You haven’t seen the details yet!

It feels like I’m back to my grade school days wearing black shoes with ankle socks. The TRUTH behind that is the shoes were a tad bit too big so I wore socks for it to fit snuggly. Just right! I dub this as the “Librarian look” :))
Kuwit | Handcrafted upcycled books
I love how it is ORIGINALLY a book that has been given a second life in the form of a fashion accessory. It’s so smart! It gives that comforting feel when you get your hands on a hard bound piece of literature – with a stylish function!

The bag is made of sturdy material, fully line and closes with a magnetic round lock. You can use it two ways: a sling or a clutch. It’s the PERFECT gift for all your bookworm friends! If you ask nicely, they might even customize for you ;) The price is so reasonable for such a unique handmade piece. See the available designs here.

It snuggly fits my phone, small wallet and a lipstick. To check out more designs and see where the next bazaar is, like Kuwit on Facebook and check out www.kuwit.net. You can also follow them on Instagram via @handmadekuwit!
