Maybe you can make a duct-tape copy of a berkin? Duct tape comes in different colors too!

I didn't say in Singapore. My wife's comment was regarding a photo in a magazine.

It's not like you have to travel far from SG though to find every brand of fake handbag...

You know I had to google directions for that immediately. I came upon this, it's actually quite beautiful: http://diycraftstomake.blogspot.com/2011/09/purseonal-is-political-birkin-inspired.html

I love upcycling! 8-)
