Travel Gear Spotting: Recycled Bicycle Tire Messenger Bag

Written by Tanner

Finally, eco fashion that I can actually stand for!

This spring, go eco-chic and travel the world with this handmade bag made from used inner bike tire tubes, all collected from local bike shops in the Seattle area. Its waterproof exterior not only makes it suitable for Seattle-ites, but makes it an ideal carry-all-yo-sh#! bag for any style-savvy individual looking to survive and stay dry through April’s showers. In keeping with the green design, the strap is made from a recycled seat belt, and the zipper pull is a recycled bicycle Presta valve. Don’t live in Seattle or feeling lazy? – get your Magnolia for only $88 from the Uncommon Goods online store!
