A few weeks ago at Buenos Aires’ Feria Puro Diseño, I stumbled across an eye-catching booth featuring Baumm’s colorful recycled bags. Repurposing old vinyl posters and billboards to make bags isn’t a new trend (Freitag seems to be leading the way in Europe and now companies from Alchemy Goods to Feuerwear are doing similar things). But we love Baumm’s use of even more colorful and one-of-a-kind publicity banners, billboards, and advertisements reclaimed from the streets of Argentina and elsewhere.

Buenos Aires-based Baumm certainly seems to be upping the ante for all of the recycled-bag producers out there by fashioning gorgeous original designs in a great selection of sizes and functions for both men and women.

$30 and up from BAUMM
