UpCycled Design

Burn rubber while on the road without leaving a large carbon footprint. 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. Handmade from reclaimed truck tire inner tubes and handsome waxed canvas, this vegan twist on a classic toiletry case holds all your grooming essentials when travelling. The water-resistant base, zippered closure, and durable inner tube handles help protect your stuff from the rigors of the TSA line, while the tire stem zipper pulls add a playfully road-worthy touch. 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.

The color and quality are five star. Very unique, well made and memorable. The only drawback was that it was smaller than the traditional sized travel bags.

Comments about UncommonGoods Upcycled Tire Toiletries Bag:

I bought this as a present for my husband, who travels the world using plastic bags for his toiletries. This bag is modern and sleek-albeit small. If it were bigger it'd be perfect.

Service and delivery comments:

Fast delivery. Came in a huge box that I wish was smaller for environmental factors.

Comments about UncommonGoods Upcycled Tire Toiletries Bag:

I love the modern twist on the classic look of waxed canvas. The truck inner-tube is a great at resisting water and damage on the bottom of this Dopp kit. I also dig the accoutrement of the Shrader Valve zipper pull (very cool). It is definitely a no-frills minimalist design - but I dig that.
