    Comments about RECYCLED BIKE TUBE PURSE: THE MAGNOLIA:

    I wasn't sure i liked this bag at first. I didn't care much for the stamped writing on the recycled tube. "MADE IN TAIWAN". It is on three places on the outside of my bag. However, it is recycled material and i like that more that i don't like the wording. The purse is not too big and not too small. Seems very durable. The addition of the rubber cuff around the strap keeps it from slipping off my shoulder. The strap itself is adjustable which is also helpful. The threading on the outside of my bag is red, no blue thread as the photo indicates. Enjoy this one of a kind bag.

        I'm so glad I got this bag. I needed a highly versatile black bag that I could use for errands and casual outings for day and night, and that would travel well, too. It had to be vegan-friendly. Recycled or up cycled preferred. This bag is ideal. It's a convenient size, easily holding multiple eyeglass cases, my mobile device, keys, and still leaving plenty of room for additional items. The tires give it an interesting, distinctive look; but it's subtle. It is beautifully made. The lining is a rich red, and sturdy.

            Previously, I had mentioned that my mom had snagged my purse & rumor was that my Aunt was thinking of snagging my 2nd purchase. Wanted to share that my mom & I got the purse for my Aunt Nancy's birthday!

            Her thank you note stated that is feels very hip & stylish! She was always the cool aunt, so no surprise there! Again, another fan of the Magnolia!

            Hopefully, we don't get them mixed up next time we're all together!

            It's the perfect purse!!

            This is my 2nd purchase of this purse. After lending it to my mom about 6 months ago, I overheard her telling a friend she had no intentions of returning it. I knew I must again have one of my own since its the perfect size, weight & style.

            The uniqueness is just an added bonus. It has enough room & you can easily find the items that have fallen to the bottom. The pockets are roomy but if there were a few more that would be good. It goes with everything and prompts conversation when people notice the material. The rubber makes it durable.

            Rumor has it that my aunt was planning on snagging my 2nd purchase! Guess, I know what I'll be getting her as a gift! Glad it was still available!

              I purchased this bag as a high school graduation gift for my teen neighbor. She is a cyclist and is also super green. It is a great size and has a very unique look. I know she will love the idea of it as much as the item itself. The seat belt handle and the valve stem zipper pull really make the look. In addition it is nicely lined with side pockets. I can see her taking this to college and enjoying it.

              love it all but shoulder strap. cool that it's made out of a seatbelt. but it's very slippery and slides off your shoulder.
