These bags are die cut from 100% recycled billboards, and have the ability to hold up to 75lbs. Additionally, the 2-D design lies flat but when in use, stretches into a
3-D structure.

The second product being rolled out is a set of envelope inspired cases that are crafted from sustainable cork and lined with billboard advertisements.
The cases come in the three different sizes for maximum versatility:  the small and medium size can fit into a small clutch or bag, while the largest one can used as it’s own carrying case.
