A Messenger With a Mission
Handmade in Austin, TX from upcycled vinyl banner material, these messenger bags carry an inspiring, environmentally and socially responsible message. The production of each bag keeps five feet of reclaimed vinyl out of landfills, and employs refugees to help overcome the oppression of their pasts. From design to raw materials to fabrication, the entire supply and production chain for these bags takes place within a twenty mile radius around Austin. They're lined with reclaimed t-shirt jersey material, with upcycled seatbelt webbing shoulder straps, a large interior compartment with D ring to secure keys, and an extra pocket under the flap to stow small items. The upcycled banner material ensures that the composition of each bag is unique in color and graphic design.

Comments about UPCYCLED BANNER MESSENGER BAG:
I get lots of compliments on this bag. It is lightweight and fun to use. The strap length is perfect for my height (5'5"). I got it for Christmas 5 months ago and I've used it every day since. My only concern is that the vinyl is showing wear on the corners, and the straps are fraying at the ends. The bag is still usable however; I think this is more of a cosmetic concern.
