UpCycled Design

Looking for the stylish and secure type? This versatile tote is made from a vegan palette of upcycled materials: reclaimed inner tubes, upcycled polyester webbing, and organically textured waxed canvas. 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 zippered top closure, a padded interior, and dividers for organization, this design is a handy companion for on-the-go work days or weekend escapes. Handmade in Seattle.

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.
