Giving Old Bike Tubes a New Reputation
Moab Bag Company is a one woman operation born in 2013 with the goal of creating practical goods from an abundant yet overlooked local resource. All products are handmade one at a time in Moab, Utah using recycled bike tubes sourced from local bike shops.
"In my perfect world, there would be no bike tubes piling up and getting dumped in landfills! Until then, I want the world to recognize what a valuable material bike tube rubber is, even after it no longer fulfills its primary purpose."
"I want to translate bike tube rubber's obvious qualities into the bags I make: durability, flexibility, strength; while at the same time highlighting its more subtle properties: versatility, suppleness, ease of care. All while maintaining its clean, simple lines (most bike tubes have several semi prominent ridges or lines that run the length of the tube). This is what I hope to accomplish with my latest creative project that is Moab Bag Company."
A note about bike tubes: All the recycled bike tubes I use to make my products are sourced from bike shops in Moab, Utah. They are thoroughly washed before being given another life as bags and accessories. When cleaned, bike tube rubber has a lovely, supple feel, and like leather, it is durable, flexible, and strong. Unlike leather, it is easy to clean and care for. There is a slight rubber smell, but you really have to put your nose up to it to notice.
