Cool hand or shoulderbag with a sturdy look - closes with zipper

The Muchacha is a handy roomy bag with a hip, cool look. This is ensured by the combination of tire and eco-leather and the metal-coloured zipper which runs over the entire width of the front side of the bag. And by the large metal rings for fastening the strap and detachable shoulder strap. The inside compartment closes with a strong zipper.

● Material:  from reused truck inner tubes and semi-eco leather
● Dimensions: 37 x 37 x 1 cm
● Closes with zipper; large zippered compartment on front
● Fixed strap and detachable, adjustable shoulder strap (max. 1,50 meter)
● Available in various colours
● All pieces are slightly different by using upcycled tires and semi-eco-leather
● Eco & Fair made in Colombia 

Shoulder / tote bag with lots of space
With the dimensions of 37 cm wide and 37 cm high, you may call the Muchacha quite big. But because the shoulder bag is flat it shows very elegant. The inner compartment is fully lined and has a zippered pocket and two compartments. The lining is a brightly colored nylon fabric, so you can find everything easily inside.

The inner compartment closes with a strong zipper and at the front of the bag is a big zipper pocket, so you can store everything safely. 

Convenient: choice of wearing
You can easily carry the Muchacha on your shoulder or in your hand with the solid strap. Do you prefer a long shoulder strap? Then you just connect the removable shoulder strap to the metal rings. These can be adjusted to 140 cm so that you can determine the ideal height and allows you to wear this shoulder bag cross.

Combination of recycled inner tubes and semi-eco leather
The Muchacha is made of a combination of reused truck inner tubes, and a flap of semi-eco leather. This is leather that is tanned 50% fewer chemicals, giving it a beautifully rugged look. The color of the leather makes a nice contrast with the black of the tire.

Fair production in Colombia
The Made in Barrio collection is produced in a local company in a very poor suburb of Bogota (Bolivar city). This is a small workshop where underprivileged slum residents get steady work, are trained and receive a good salary up to local standards.

Brand: MoreThanHip-tyre bags

Recycling of truck inner tires

The MoreThanHip tyre tube collection is made of recycled truck inner tubes. From a distance this material just looks like black leather. But close by you see it has to be something different.

The tyre tube collection includes trendy handbags and shoulder bags, and also messenger bags and laptop cases for both women and men.

Strong, wear resistant, supple and waterproof
Inner tube is very practical material: wear resistant, waterproof and easy to clean. The rubber is well cleaned and treated with environmentally friendly means, which hardly smells or stains. In use, it becomes even more beautiful because the tire tube gets a soft shine.

In addition, these items are easy to clean with water and a cloth. And if you accidentally get a hole in it, this is easy to fix with a sticker for bicycle tires.

Environmentally friendly
The collection is made in Colombia (South America), where there is a concerted effort to recycle vehicle tires to help make the environment cleaner. A great deal of material that used to be simply burnt (releasing hazardous substances!) is now receiving a new lease of life.

Fair production in Colombia
The Made in Barrio collection is made in Bogotá, the capital of Colombia. The workshop is located in Bolivar City, a very poor slum area and operates according to fair trade standards. Socially disadvantaged residents, like single mothers, get a steady job, are trained and receive a good salary, according to local standards. In this way, people at the bottom of society get a chance of a better life. So: Fair trade!
