dutch company used2b has created a series of urban bags made out of industrial waste items such as discarded cement packaging, recycled tea sacks and seat belts. wanting to give a second life to these products, the outcome is a durable carrier for daily needs. the raw materials offer a robust appearance and are designed for on-the-go living with side pockets and secure zips integrated into them.
