ReCycle Inner-Tube BagsBy Rocky Thompson on January 11th, 2007
Alchemy Goodsâ€™ story is turning useless into useful. They make their messenger bags from recycled bike inner tubes and seatbeltsâ€”they even use the old metal parts from seatbelts to make bottle openers. Their original messenger bag goes for $148, but youâ€™ll have to buy the recycled Schrader valve zipper pulls separately. Alchemy Goodâ€™s messenger bags look a little like the Pedroâ€™s inner tube bags that flopped a long time ago, but AG did a much better job of styling these things out.
