Vintage Sling Belt Recycled Tarp Bag
The Maker: Puebco are conjurers of beautiful goods from recycled materials, mostly those from the Indian and Japanese military.
PUEBCO was born in Japan 2007 with the simple notion of creating things instinctively, using found and recycled materials to curate renewed lifestyle items. PUEBCO believes that just as people are the sum of their lived experiences, the objects we share our homes with should carry that same sense of history and weight. By using recycled materials and hand made processes, PUEBCO imbues these objects with the feel of many lifetimes and a sense of history that makes each piece unique. With PUEBCO products, there are no imperfections... they are details meant to be there by design.

The Work: "There is a backstory that is the inspiration for this Vintage Sling Belt Rectangle Bag. We first found this bag at a flea market in Brooklyn. It was a bag that was used in the libraries in America. The handles are short and perfectly designed to be durable in carrying books. The one we originally found at the flea market was well worn. It had holes but it was beautiful knowing it had served it's purpose. In search of the right material to reproduce this tough bag, we traveled to 3 separate cities. We found a canvas made for truck canopies that had the desired strength. As this bag becomes a part of your lifestyle and as it gets more worn, we are sure that the bag will become more beautiful. Just like the bag we found in Brooklyn."
