Giving Old Bike Tubes a New Reputation

The story:
Moab Bag Company is a one woman operation born in 2013 with the goal of creating practical goods from recycled and salvaged materials. All products are handmade one at a time in Moab, Utah using recycled bike tubes sourced from local bike shops. Now made using solar power!

Late 2012: I moved to Moab with no plans and no employment, but a strong yearning to create. My new roommate invited me to go yard sale-ing, impulsively I bought a sewing machine, having no idea that I just made one of the most influential purchases of my life. A series of events led to me making a crude set of panniers using old bike tubes I'd scavenged at the neighborhood bike shop. I immediately realized I had stumbled onto an idea for a product that folks might love. First I made wallets, then pouches, then a whole series of other bags, some that sold, some that didn't. All of a sudden, I had a business and people were excited about what I was doing. My lack of plans or employment turned out to be a boon, this allowed me to explore an exciting new possibility. Over five years later I'm still looking forward. I'm feeling wiser, smarter, more experienced and still excited to be making cool products from recycled materials that people love.

A NOTE ON THE TUBES

The bike tubes I use are sourced from bike shops in Moab and the surrounding region. They are well washed and vetted for holes, stuck-on adhesives, funky smells, and bad attitudes. When cleaned, bike tube rubber has a surprising, supple feel, and like leather, it is durable, flexible and strong. There is a slight rubber smell, but you really have to put your nose up to it to notice. All bike tubes have factory markings of various colors and a few have patches added by their previous owners; so each bag or wallet comes with its own secret story for you to ponder over!

Returns and exchange details
If you would like to return or exchange your purchase, please contact me within 14 days of receipt, at which time we can begin the return process.

I accept returns on all items as long as they meet two criteria:
- The item(s) must be in their original condition.
- The package must be postmarked no later than 30 days from receipt (meaning it should be back in my possession within 30 days after you receive it)

The cost of return shipping & tracking is the buyer's responsibility. I will refund the purchase price and cost of original shipping once I receive the items and verify that they meet the above criteria.

If a package is determined to have been lost, I will issue a full refund after 30 days have passed from the date of shipment.
Payment
I accept payment via Etsy Payments or Paypal.

If you would like to cancel or make changes to your order, please contact me as soon as you can. I cannot guarantee that changes can be made after 48 hours.
Shipping
Your package will be shipped via USPS First Class Mail, tracking is always included. Within the US, First Class Mail takes 2-5 business days for delivery.

Please note if you order multiple items with different shipping times, the longest shipping time will apply to your whole order.

Upgrades:
At checkout you have the option to upgrade to USPS Priority Mail or Priority Mail Express for an additional cost. Priority Mail takes an estimated 1-3 days for delivery, Priority Express is a next day service.

Orders returned by USPS due to an insufficient or incorrect address, or that have been refused by the recipient, will be resent at the customer's expense, or refunded. I will contact you to determine which you prefer. These orders will be automatically refunded if the customer does not respond within one week, less the cost of original shipping.

All orders ship from Moab, Utah, USA. Moab Bag Co uses all eco-friendly shipping materials. Used bike tubes and recycled mailers make a great match!

International Customers:

Your package will be shipped via USPS First Class Mail International, tracking is always included. Keep in mind that tracking information for international packages is not always updated once packages depart the US.

Delivery times for international orders can vary widely depending on customs clearance times, though orders usually arrive within two to three weeks. Four to six weeks is not unheard of. You may upgrade to USPS Priority Mail International (6-10 business days) or Express International (3-5 business days) at checkout for an additional cost.

Please be aware that you may be obliged to pay customs fees and/or import taxes when your package arrives. I do not cover these costs.

*

I do all I can to assure your order is delivered to you safe and sound. However, please keep in mind that once I have taken your package to the Post Office, it is beyond my control. If your package is late in arriving, or you suspect it has been lost please contact me so I can work on tracking it down for you. In this situation, I will maintain an open line of communication with you so that we can work out a satisfactory solution for the both of us. Please remain patient and be assured that I am doing what I can to help.
