Pike Messenger Bag

Due to the nature of any recycled material, Alchemy bags, which are constructed of recycled bike tire inner tubes often show the wear and unique markings associated with them. The pictures represented may not be exactly identical to the products you receive.

Due to the nature of any recycled material, Alchemy bags, which are constructed of recycled bike tire inner tubes often show the wear and unique markings associated with them. The pictures represented may not be exactly identical to the products you receive.

Alchemy is now making a line of high style totes from recycled tires, actually bike tires to be exact. So if your business has anything to do with bike racing, bike manufacturing, bike events, or sales, your promotional items might just have arrived.

Take for example the Pike Messenger Bag. We recently ran a sample of this bag for the City of Arlington, Texas, Parks and Recreation department (which shows that your core business need not be bike related for these bags to still work for your brand). Each bag in the line really is just telling a story about what can be done with recycled materials. Completing that loop of the recycled story, there was trash, now there is a bag in its place.

Alchemy says each Pike Messenger Bag is made from 67% of their “Upcycled Material”. The eco-friendly bag is a medium sized messenger with a inner divider (15” laptop capable), waterproof exterior pocket, two internal pockets (plus pen slots), and internal key clip.

Constructed of upcycled inner tubes, the bags also boast reflective tape for nighttime visibility, adjustable shoulder strap made from upcycled seatbelt, and full front flap with Velcro® closure for extra security. Even the zipper pulls are recycled from the air valves of the bike inner tube.

They are a great size at 9″H x 14-1/2″w x 4-1/2″. Decoration is done via embrodiery of a PVC patch direct to the front cover of the flap. All bags bear the Alchemy brand AG logo, and come with a hagtag that tells the story of their creation.

All and all, very cool, very hip.

If you are interested in made in the Pike Messenger Bag to promote your own business, contact Proforma Green Marketing or email info@proformagreen.com for information and pricing

And as always, if you really want to do something sustainable, do not buy promotional products. All products are consumption at one level or another. So if you must buy 1) Buy local (i.e. made in USA), 2) Buy useful, long lasting items, 3) Buy sustainable if possible.
