UpCycled Design

Your little black dress is a classic, but how many miles has it logged? Handmade from upcycled bike inner tubes, this clutch-style women's wallet is a functional complement that will take you from an upscale evening to casual Friday. Undeterred by the theft of his beloved messenger bag, avid cyclist Eli Reich made a new one out of inner tubes, and he's been upcycling ever since. With eight credit card slots, two billfold or checkbook slots, and a zippered compartment for receipts and coins, this vegan design offers smart and stylish organization. Handmade in Seattle.

Like any avid cyclist, Eli Reich loved his messenger bag. So imagine his disappointment when it was stolen. Not one to be derailed for long, he turned this loss into an opportunity. Using a borrowed sewing machine, he crafted a replacement bag from the bike tubes he had lying around. Everyone who saw Eli’s creation wanted one of their own, inspiring him to quit his job and launch a new venture transforming recycled bicycle and truck inner tubes into sleek, stylish, and sustainably produced bags and accessories inspired by the urban lifestyle.
