Recycled Rubber Mail Bag, by Neumatica

Perfect for the wet weather, this recycled rubber crossbody bag is super edgy! Read below for the awesome story behind this design:

''Argentinian company Neumatica Net makes the most fabulous looking bags out of recycled rubber inner tubes. Not only are they creating a lovely looking product, the tubes take more than 500 years to decompose. Neumatica bags are made using tubes from tires of any kind of vehicle, 100,000 tons of this material is disposed every year, in Argentina alone.

All rubber inner tubes begin plain and have no texture when new, but after being used, the heat of the tires transfers the design to them, so you will find multiple textures in Neumatica products.'' - hautenature.blogspot.com
"Sourced from all over Argentina, the inner tubes are put through a double cleaning process before each pattern is hand-cut, piece by piece. No two bags are ever the same, as each tyre has its own distinctive texture and markings developed during life on the road. It’s more than a bag; it’s a daily design object and the ultimate in creative upcycling." - https://theecologist.org/2011/mar/25/top-10eco-friendly-bags
