Popular with the men who built our Railroads..... here is an old-fashioned railroad worker's bag which we have made from bike tire tubes, and it functions as a gym bag or work bag or audition bag (if you are an actor). The leather on the ends is positively ancient, so the bag has an old
look and feel to it.

If you are tired of backpacks, then this bag may be for you, since you carry it with your hands.
Upcycled from soft, used bike tire tubes cut flat and stitched together,
aged brown leather ends, nylon strap handles with more leather trim.
The other end features a small zipper compartment,
for cigarette packs and medical you-know-what. About 9 inches in diameter;
fill it with a change of clothes, wireless transmitters, torches, you know.

It is double-and triple-stitched with 8-pound nylon thread... this is
a tough bag... tough yet handsome. Because it is black and brown, and has tan straps.
And the tire tubes are recycled. The leather is thick, and has a waxy touch, from
some industrial application. (The last time I saw leather with a waxy finish was for
elevator motor belts in old Boston) One fun thing is to hold a lighter up to the
leather sides, and create rich new patterns in the waxed surface.

Lined with a poly/tarp outdoor fabric, and finished inside with piping.
Big brass zipper and quality smaller zipper on the pouch. The thickness of the rubber,
the leather, the lining and the zippers all make for a handsome, tough bag.
We like saying 'handsome.' In fact we say it over and over again, in the mirror,
with no appreciable result....

Ships USPS Priority Mail ($10) because they have tracking, and delivery confirmation.
Otherwise, it goes missing and we become sad.
