Bicycle Bags from Save the C

Issue 22 · Indoor/Outdoor · June 6, 2014

For the eco-conscious cyclist: clever bicycle bags made from reclaimed sails by Save the C in Finland.

Save the C was founded by two sailors in Hamari, a village where the river Porvoo meets the Baltic Sea, "one of the most beautiful and sensitive sea areas in the world," they say. "The idea is to make beautiful products from recycled sails and other sustainable materials." For retailers, go to Save the C; in the US, Save the C bags are available at Ivana Helsinki in NYC and Tiina the Store in Amagansett.
