Recycled Sail and Tire Bags


Images from Teamwork website

With backgrounds collectively in design and business co-owners of Teamwork Bags, Nick Stygstra, Justin Mast and Nick Stockton, acted on a simple idea of using local material from the Great Lakes region to make durable, stylish, sustainable bags made out of recycled sails and bike tires—materials that would have otherwise been thrown out only to end up in a landfill.

Tote Bag:

The bags come in two forms, one being the average grocery tote and the other functioning as a bike messenger bag. While we like the minimal graphic treatment of the bags in general—it would have been nice to see them expand the canvass.
