Jumeau Bags Are Green, Grungy But Not Flashback-Free

A few fashion trends that need to be put on some kind of universal "Do Not Resuscitate" list: shoulder pads, Hammer pants, and Crocs. Then there's acid-wash jeans, which deserve a full-blown exorcism of their own before being staked, stuffed with garlic, and deep-sixed underground where the sun don't shine.But if you're getting sentimental in your dotage and pine for the days when Deborah Gibson was just plain, old "Debbie" and preferred teenybopper pop ditties over the company of mega sharks and giant octopuses (yeah, I know), Jumeau's Green Collection will indulge your nostalgic yearnings, while leaving you some modicum of the adult respectability you've gained since.
Made with organic cotton and bamboo, and sporting recycled hardware, Jumeau's distressed, acid-wash purses, totes, and backpacks get their distinct look from natural dyes, which impart hues like Cranberry, Soil, Deep Sea Blue, and Desert. Styles and sizes run the gamut, from the diminutive Oona ($55) to the expansive Lucien ($169).
The bags come with a 45-day no-questions-asked satisfaction guarantee, along with a five-year replacement warranty—which is more than you can say about your last pair of inflatable L.A. Gears.
