Jessica Biel Launches Eco Accessories Line with Brother
Jessica Biel has teamed up with younger brother, Justin Biel, and his childhood friend Grason Ratowsky, to launch an eco-friendly line of accessories called Bare.
The designs are handmade in Colorado and are one-of-a-kind. The co-ed line features totes, backpacks, clutches and duffel bags made from recycled burlap coffee sacks from around the world. Prices are between $80-320.
Ratowsky’s father brought him back a large bag from a trip to Costa Rica and the idea came naturally to the two friends.
“It’s really a passion project,” Justin told Vogue in an interview.
Biel keeps all of her must-haves in one of Bare’s sturdy totes.
“It’s my set bag,” said the actress. “It has all my scripts, all my stuff, all of my character stuff, it comes with me every day to work.”
Her brother’s quest to make an environmental impact doesn’t surprise the actress one bit.
“We all grew up with the Flatiron mountains right behind us,” she said. “If you had any brain at all, you would just look outside your window and go ‘Oh wow, this world is something that I want to protect.’”
