Let it not be said that we don’t offer some sense of continuity here on e-Potpourri – be it either by accident or design (though in this case it’s very much by design).
Having just posted about Velo-re’s Recycled Bicycle Belts we felt somewhat obliged to continue the theme of tire related, eco aware fashion with the superb collection of bags from Passchal.
Handcrafted from truck and tractor tire inner tubes, Passchal’s range offers everything from handbags to executive cases and, apart from being especially hardwearing (Passchal, in a rather tongue-in-cheek manner, guarantee them for 50,000 miles), they also cut a fine figure in their own right.
We’ve previously had contact with Passchal concerning their up and coming recycled inner tube iPod cases and we can personally verify that these products are lovingly hand made by a company that genuinely cares about the eco friendly nature of their products. In fact, according to their website, Passchal have so far managed to save over 14 tons of inner tubes from being dumped.
Passchal’s Man Bag, as featured at the top of this post, retails for $170, whilst the Dad’s Baby Case, also featured, retails for $175. You can view the full range of bags and cases presently available via the Passchal Online Catalogue.
