Sourced Upcycled Messenger Bags
We have had a nice delivery of messenger bags today. These bags are hand made in Cornwall using upcycled materials. There is a BIG difference between upcycled and recycled. Upcycling takes a product, modifies it into something else of higher value, whereas recycling uses a lot of energy and changes the properties of the object to make use of it again.
These bags are made from old truck tarp (you know, the shiny stuff on the side of trucks that flaps about while your trying to overtake it on the motorway), seat belt straps and inner tubes. All the bags are handmade, each bag is completely unique, durable and waterproof. There are 2 sizes available, medium costs £40 (fits 13" laptop) or large at £50 (fits 17" laptop). This is a great price for such a good bag!
