This spacious sage green backpack has been skilfully handmade from thick organic cotton canvas and bicycle inner tubes!  It's lined with a vibrant African print waxed cotton and comfortably fits a 15 inch laptop. Approximately 39cm x 37cm.

Why we love it

  • Made with used bicycle inner tubes that would otherwise have gone to landfill
  • Ethically hand crafted by trained tailors through a fair trade initiative in Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world
  • 100% of all money made by Cycle of Good funds social enterprise, early years childcare and family support in Chilomoni Township

    This organic cotton and hemp canvas rucksack is a great size for everyday use. It features adjustable shoulder straps, a carry handle and an exterior rubber pocket at the back. Inside it's lined with a beautiful African print waxed cotton and has a large interior pocket. The fold over closure has a strap fastening and a quick release magnetic clasp for ease of access.

    Unlike other canvas bags, this one has a useful waterproof bottom made from recycled inner tubes, meaning the bag's contents will keep dry and secure if it's put on a wet surface.

    Please note that due to the upcycled nature of this product, there will be blemishes and variations on the rubber parts - you may be lucky enough to get some manufacturer's text or even an old puncture repair patch!

    Measures approximately 39cm wide x 37cm deep maximum when folded over and fastened. Vegan friendly. Comes with recyclable card swing tag detailing the fair trade background of the product.

    Cycle of Good collects waste inner tubes from cycle shops and cycling clubs throughout the UK. The waste materials are shipped in its own containers to Malawi, where they are given to its tailors to make something beautiful.

    Inner tube products contain butyl rubber which contains polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Please keep away from the mouth and avoid prolonged contact with the skin. Cycle of Good pays above the national living wage and offers full employment rights such as paid holiday and pensions. Regular, reliable employment is essential and very hard to come by in Malawi. With no welfare state, the locals cannot work, and cannot support their families. The Cycle of Good has made lasting positive change for the communities in Chilomoni Township, Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world.

    ✔ The Malawian workshops are made from soil eco-blocks and are all powered by the sun

    ✔ Cycle of Good works with the Chilomoni forestry service to plant trees on its local mountain

    ✔ All waste items from the UK are shipped by sea in shared container space.
