While medieval alchemists sought to turn lead into gold,
Alchemy Goods strives to turn useless stuff like blown-out inner tubes, old
seatbelts and advertising banners into useful stuff like bags and wallets.
Another word for this is upcycling. Recycling turns stuff into the same
thing over and over again. Upcycling turns something of lesser value
into something of greater value.
The Pine is a messenger bag distilled to its essential functions. A zippered outside pocket holds your cell phone and is protected from the elements by a rain flap. Inside, there’s enough room for your commute or day trip sundries. The whole package sits in the small of your back without weighing you down.
This everyday wallet features ample capacity while keeping a slim silhouette. Underneath its argyle stitched exterior, the Phinney hides four card slots and a wide sleeve for cash. The wallet zips closed for compact security.
If you’re looking for an extremely durable wallet that treads lightly on the planet, and is simply and thoughtfully designed, look no further. The Franklin is slim and flexible. The four card slots stretch to accept way more cards than you should be carrying around. Only the nylon thread is not recycled.
