RIIR by Aranaz has released its Holiday 2009 collection, with exquisite "eco-ethical" designs by Amina Aranaz, hand-woven by the women of Payatas. The bags are made of sustainable organic materials and upcycled fabric scraps.

The collection is part of the RIIR project of Rags2Riches Inc., a Filipino social business enterprise which creates eco-ethical fashion and home items, which Aranaz has partnered with. Rags2Riches has received several recognitions locally and internationally, one of which is winning first prize at the Business in Development Global Challenge in the Netherlands, where the group bested 8,000 entries.

This season, the bags can be enjoyed by the green stylistas in the country, with the limited-edition collection's Philippine launch.

Check out Aranaz at the Powerplant Mall.
