Baumm, Recycled Advertisement bags, recycled banner bags, recycled bags, eco bags, eco purse [1]

A few weeks ago at Buenos Aires’ Feria Puro Diseño [2], I stumbled across an eye-catching booth featuring Baumm’s [3] colorful recycled bags. Repurposing old vinyl posters and billboards to make bags isn’t a new trend (Freitag [4] seems to be leading the way in Europe and now companies from Alchemy Goods [5] to Feuerwear [6] are doing similar things). But we love Baumm’s [3] 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 [3] 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 [3]
