Eco-Hip- Recycled Bags featuring Alchemy Goods !

Have you ever come across an ethical, eco-fashion product that just made you go "wow"? If you haven't , today's the day that this might change. I want to introduce you to an exciting, brilliant brand called Alchemy Goods, which sells bags and accessories made from recycled, used bicycle tubes. Some of their best-sellers are also made from reclaimed billboards (e.g.  Ad bags), truck inner tubes (all wallets) and auto seatbelts (straps on messengers and some shoulder bags). How interesting is that? 

Firstly, lets begin with a bit about Alchemy Goods- the brand is founded by product engineer and bike commuter Eli Reich who decided to make a new messenger bag after his got stolen in Seattle. He used what he had- bicycle inner tubes to create the perfect messenger bag: cool, urban, water-resistant, and feels almost indestructible. Soon, he began a business manufacturing these durable and trendy bags, and later the business expanded rapidly. 

All of Alchemy Good's bags are made with recycled bicycle tubes, which helps the environment as nothing goes to waste. They source these from bike shops, clean them and sew them together for the perfect bag. All of the bags have a lifetime guarantee! I was lucky enough to be able to review 2 of their amazing bags. Take a look at what arrived on my doorstep below!

The first bag I got was the lovely Madison backpack- this is a beautiful, compact unisex backpack for both men and women who are on the go. It has a 13-inch laptop compartment in the middle, which means that it's pretty perfect for work and travelling, if you're into a smaller type of bag. Not to get me wrong, the bag is super roomy on the inside and can fit plenty of items like a water bottle, clothes, wallets and books. It's made from lovely recycled materials on the outside, and the inside is lined with smooth, crisp nylon.

Everything about this bag is perfect- it is made in Washington, so it is extremely high quality and feels really indestructible! I can go out in the rain or the snow and it still won't get wet or damaged. I'm pretty sure that this is one of the strongest backpacks I've ever seen! In terms of the design, I love the shape of this backpack. It looks really stylish and unique, and is such an fashion statement!

The second backpack I got was the amazing Brooklyn Backpacked in Waxed Canvas- this was the first bag that caught my eye since it looked really unique and cool. The waxed canvas fabric on the outside is super durable, tough and smooth, and looks like something you'd find in a high-fashion magazine. The bag itself is extremely roomy and large- it would fit a 15 inch laptop as well as plenty of books and folders. Best of all, the design is sleek so it's not too puffy and bulky. It's something I'd say fits a well-groomed or stylish man, or even a cool, edgy girl who loves to travel around and carry everything conveniently in a backpack!

The base of the backpack is made from the recycled bicycle tubes, which gives it an awesome finishing touch. I thought that it looked like leather - the best thing about using bicycle tubes is that it does look and feel like leather, but it's probably less fragile and much more durable, not to mention eco-friendly!

Overall, I'd highly recommend checking out Alchemy Goods. They're an innovative, green and sustainable brand, and using bicycle tubes to make bags is something that I've never heard of until now! I'm a huge fan of sustainable fashion, and Alchemy Goods has hit all the right marks! Best of all, their products feels almost indestructible and you're guaranteed a lifetime warranty!
