Simple, recycled and unique, this is Freitag

The brand Freitag is one that should inspire people to think outside of the box. This brand does all kind of bags specially the messenger one. They are made with materials like well-traveled truck tarpaulins, unraveled seat belts, bicycle inner tubes beyond repair and recycled airbags. Since they are made or trunk tarpaulins they are pretty resistant!

I had the opportunity to visit their main store in Zürich. Its simply impressive, is built out of cargo boxes!

You could go until the 4th box.

Each bag they produce is unique, since it will be cut out of a unique truck tarpaulins. This image simple translate this point very well,

The other weekend while strolling in Cologne we ended up finding a Freitag shop, i really like their minimalist and well organized way of showing their products.


They had quite a lot of unique products!





Also if by any change you have some spare truck tarpaulins you can always sell them to Freitag :)

Simple, recycled and unique!

Wow, I have been wondering what Freitag was. I see the bags all over NYC, but didn't know their industrial origins.

Now that I think of it, when I have been on cruises to Russia and through Europe, I think I had seen the Freitag brand but not known what was being made of the tarps.
