Alchemy Goods Bags. Made from Trek Bicycle inner tubes, these messenger bags, wallets, and dopp bags are functional, fashionable, and are just plain awesome!
Alchemy Goods has already reclaimed over 182,000 inner tubes for their bags. The majority of each creation is made of reused material. In the corner of the logo on each piece, there is a number that represents the percentage (by weight) of upcycled material in that piece.
The difference between recycling and upcycling is that recycling becomes the same thing over and over again, while upcycling takes something of lesser value and makes it something of greater value.
Weatherproof, durable, highly unlikely to stain, what more could you ask of a messenger bag? Oh yeah, how about a recycled seat belt as a strap? Every detail is comfortable and hardy!
You don’t have to be a cyclist to love these bags. We are always excited to find good looking, eco-friendly options that are made right here in the US. These bags are a win-win. You can check them out in our Gift Shop (or wait til you spot them on State Street); they really make a statement!
