Ja Ja Ja - Purses Made from Recycled, New and Old Fabrics

Jajaja is a small business run by two sisters in Castro Valley, California. Their purses and bags come in a variety of sizes from a tiny little 5"x4.5" purse to a laptop size tote and in many different styles from saddle bags, hobo bags, totes and book bags.

Ja Ja Ja makes fabulous, fabric purses and bags, from recycled, new, old and vintage fabrics. The bags are unique, one of a kind, and made very well. Each bag has its own history or story, which we will share with you.

My sister and I founded Ja Ja Ja almost seven years ago. Our grandmother had taught us to sew as we were growing up and our clothes were always made at home. My sister and I share a love of creating, designing, recycling and unique fabrics. We obtain our fabrics from yard sales, estate sales, antique shows, thrift shops, Ebay, fabric stores and wonderful donations. Recycling used fabric and embellishments is very important to the creation of our bags. We enjoy giving new life to an old coat with stains and tears.

To see more of these great bags go to their Etsy Shop at: Ja Ja Ja
