Companies have done it before. Using recycled material to make messenger bags. First there was utilizing old truck tarps, then recycled tubes and now there is the Chrome Salvage Series.
Salvage Series uses reclaimed materials for the external panels of our Heritage Citizen to create unique, one-of-a-kind bags. Built in Chico, California, each series is limited by the quantity of available material. Each bag is stamped with the lot size and its unique number within the lot. Once they’re gone, they’re gone!
First of their type Chrome used US Army tents. For $160 one of these could be yours. A very cool concept, but I think if I was in the Army or retired this would feel pretty cool to have as my everyday bag! Too bad my retired Army dad wouldn’t be caught using one. My sources at Chrome say these bags will go quickly and are only allotted to specific Chrome stores and quality retailers. If you end up with one of these gems please post up!
