Street Chic

This stylish bag packs some serious street style since the leathery components are actually tires that have gone from flat to fabulous. Designed by Italian designer Patrizia Pizzatti, this backpack gives the sophisticated style strutted through the streets of Milan an eco-chic edge. The creation of these stylish sacks empowers talented Guatemalan artisans. Each one is cut and sewn by hand from hand-woven cotton fabric rich with traditional Mayan decorative motifs. Strips of recycled inner tube rubber serve as bold accents and sturdy seam supports. Handcrafted by fair-trade artisans in the highlands of Guatemala.
