WAS Originals - the hippest unique gift this Xmas?

WAS has produced a great new range of recycled billboard fashion bags for unique Xmas gifts. On offer are one-of-a-kind Clutch, Satchel and Laptop bags, available from selected retailers and on the web.

Auckland, New Zealand - November 29, 2005 - WAS New Zealand has a range of fashion bags created from recycled billboards. Every bag is a one off original manufactured in New Zealand. WAS customers can purchase bags from selected retailers and online at

“The launch of our new range of products has been huge, particularly our Laptop bags” says Glenda Keegan, co-owner of WAS “People want products that no one else has and every WAS bag is unique to the individual. Lets face it; virtually all laptop bags are boring!” Each WAS bag is individually hand chosen from the billboard, cut, washed, pressed, sewn, and uploaded to the online shop.

“Because billboards are made to be on the side of the road in the harsh New Zealand weather these products are really hard wearing.” Anna Church, the other owner of WAS says. “Most of the billboards that we use are destined for the tip. It is such great material and so unique that it is a waste not to wear it!”.

WAS Bags come in several flavours including the Big-Rivet Satchel Bag, the Fashion Clutch Bag; and the Not-Boring-Black Laptop Bag. Because we are all unique, individual gift vouchers are also available online allowing that special someone to choose their own WAS original.
Visit to gift that someone special.
