Flat Bags are made with reused bike inner tubes
and a colourful array of rediscovered fabrics

Why Flat?

alpine beauty


We recycle inner tubes because this world should remain beautiful!


Our History!

Being an avid mountain biker for years, there were always piles of old inner tubes in my basement. So in 1996 the first inner tube was cut, instead of patched… and with some old rain pants for material, I made the first Flat Bag....

Now we collect used bike inner tubes and fun fabrics from colourful eras to make a simple line of carrying bags.

Flat Bags can be found all over the world…usually near someone who feels it is important to recycle.
