Alchemy Goods creates products through a process called "upcycling" - that is using waste materials as the basis for a new consumer product. we start with a batch of discarded tubes from bike shops, either collected locally in Seattle or shipped to us from across the US. We sort, clean and cut the tubes to prepare them for sewing. Our seamstresses them create a fabric from the tubes, which then is laid out with a standard pattern to cut and sew from. Finishing touches like valve stem zipper pulls or seatbelt straps are then added before the bags are quality checked and put on our shelve for distribution. All AG products are made in Seattle, WA and have a lifetime guarantee.
