For Christmas 2008 Guy Laliberte had a fantastic gift for the artists of the Cirque Du Soleil ZAIA show (and other CDS artists worldwide): a handbag made from the tarp of a retired Cirque big top tent. The handbags are made of the recycled material and fit into Cirque “eco-friendly” attitude, as well as featuring the wonderful bright yellow and blue of the traveling Cirque big tops. Just like the tarp you see behind Guy in the photo above.
Thank you and Merry Christmas 2008 to Guy!
I’m too lazy to take a photo of the actual bag – but here are other Cirque type bags that use recycled big top tarp:
And a great photo of the Cirque Du Soleil bigtop:
