  • the story

Black is the New Green

Just the right bag to grab when you're ready to roll, this backpack carries both your gear and a positive impact on the environment. Its hip, contemporary look comes from a surprising material—reclaimed bicycle tire inner tubes. The tubes, which would otherwise have been discarded, are cleaned, trimmed and stitched, creating a material that combines good looks with waterproof durability. Inside is a padded computer sleeve to protect your tech while you're on the road. The curved shoulder straps are padded for comfort, and there are plenty of pockets to hold your essentials. Made in Seattle, Washington.

    Comments about BROOKLYN UPCYCLED BIKE TUBE BACKPACK:

    Great design, quality construction, and has a padded laptop compartment. Love having a bag that is stylish enough for work, and I was tired of lugging one strap - messenger bags around.

    Love this bag, use it everyday and it still looks brand new.

    this is a really good idea. If there was more colors for the zippers or some way to personalize it would be good. My only other thought would depend on the price

    Durable, sturdy with recycled bicycle tire tubes living another life in a backpack. Like the blue stiching contrast around the zipper.

    I didn't like this till I heard the story. It makes the bag much more interesting. Very cool!

    Patty

    I would certainly use this. Very cool!

    It's plain and frankly a little on the ugly side.
