Eco chic

Your summer tote is here, and it’s made of 95 percent upcycled materials.

Alchemy Goods’ Ad Bag has a sturdy body crafted from recycled Seattle billboards donated by companies such as Microsoft. Upcycled seat-belt straps and a handle grip made from used bicycle inner tubes complete the urban-chic look.

No two are exactly the same, but all are machine washable.

And each roomy, lightweight bag is a unique slice of local history that puts other people’s advertising to work for you.
