UpCycled Design

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. Instead of languishing in a landfill, the bike inner tubes used to make this billfold get a second chance at life in your back pocket. It features four card slots and a compartment for your money, while the exterior sports a reflective strip handy for finding your wallet in the dark or flagging down a cab for an evening out. Slim and stylish, it's a great fit for gear-loving guys. Handmade in Seattle.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Made in Washington

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.
