With so much waste around it’s great to see some innovative ways to incorporate scrap materials into sustainable design. Our latest Upcycle Idol edition features UK bag company Sourced Life, who makes handmade mens holdalls, messengers and accessories. Saving metres upon metres of recycled truck tarp from clogging up our landfills, Sourced Life sells durable, waterproof and practical designs with a contemporary urban aesthetic.
With no bag quite the same, each style has its own history and previous life from its journey on road. The handles are even made from used seatbelts! Spacious and sturdy enough to carry a laptop, tablet or portfolio, you get substance with style, plus a special bicycle tube lining for extra protection.
Prices range from £24.99 – £65
