A madder red dyed fabric Solar Bag with chocolate leather trim.  The two sided design allows the solar panel to face the sun or your body, with two interior zipper pockets - one for the lithium-ion storage battery and the other for the electronics.  There is one exterior box pleat front pocket, antiqued brass hardware, collar-stud closure, Bavarian, chrome-free, vegetable tanned and dyed, full-grain cowhide leather, hand shibori dyed hemp/cotton fabric with natural pigments and an organic hemp/cotton lining.  Each bag comes with a locket filled with leather and compost to remind you that your bag is biodegradable, as well as an organic cotton shopper dust bag hand printed with "Noon" logo.  The Willow tote pictured is hand dyed with madder root and is perfect for work or everyday.  Noon Solar creates bags for men and women from materials chosen for their sustainability, longevity and beauty.  We hand-dye our organic fabrics, and use chrome and chemical free leathers.  Our Noon Solar line integrates flexible solar panels to charge your cell phone or iPod.  By integrating solar panels into our bags, we offer a means to incorporate renewable energy into our daily lives.
