    Recycled Tire Bags from Vulcana

    Vulcana is a sub company or American Eagle who takes tires from landfills in the United States and recycled them. They have a patented recycling process that takes the tire chunks and reforms them to a sheet style rubber. The resulting rubber material is called rubbReTM . The material is water and scratch resistant, easily cleaned with a damp cloth and sturdy enough to be fashioned into backpacks or laptop bags.

    Vulcana has developed a variety of products from recycled tire materials. Their product range includes handbags, backpacks, fabrics, buttons, key chains and custom printed binders. Here we are going to take a closer look at some of the more popular bag styles that they have created.
