This extremely lightweight bag is made entirely of the aluminium ring-pulls from drinks cans, artfully woven together by starving children.
Ok, I made the last bit up, but I bet the original models were made from recycled cans in an impoverished and far-flung country before some grasping designer pinched the idea from them and bought in thousands of unused ones for his own use, shipped them out to the original inventors and bullied them into making sleek ones like this for the Western market. That's me - I like to see the best in everyone.
Anyway, I really like it - not that I would be seen dead 'wearing' one, you understand. I looked up from taking this photo and saw that one of the girls behind the bar was wearing a chunky necklace made from ring-pulls too - very bling.
If the worst came to the worst, you could always scrap it in for cash, the way metal prices are rising these days.
A few brave but misguided USAF pilots used to go into action over Vietnam (yes, sorry - it's that war again) wearing chunky, solid gold bracelets in the belief that if they were to eject from their crashing plane over Viet Cong territory, they could bargain for their lives with them.
Well, stop me if I'm wrong, but once you have been captured anyway, how are you going to stop your enemy from just taking it off your wrist - either before or after he kills you?
