Blown out bike inner tubes, old seatbelts, and old advertising banners are typically all bound for the landfill. But not at Alchemy Goods -- they upcycle and salvage what many would consider trash to create their unique line of sustainable products. Their upcycled materials are sorted, cleaned, and manufactured into backpacks, messengers, bike bags, and accessories all made in Boulder, Colorado.

After the founder of Alchemy Goods had his messenger bag stolen he realized the used bike innertubes in his basement could be fashioned into a messenger bag. A sewing machine and many bag iterations later, Alchemy Goods sources the reclaimed inner tubes used in their products from cyclists and bike shops all across the United States. Alchemy Goods is B Corp certified and believes strongly in the triple bottom line: profit, people, and the planet. Their products are vegan, upcycled, made with deadstock fabrics, made from natural materials and they pay a competitive living wage to all their employees.

Sustainable
Our sustainable brand partners are committed to responsible sourcing and intentional design that creates minimal negative environmental impact. Some of their methods may include sustainably harvesting raw materials, upcycling/recycling used materials (such as plastic or dead stock fabrics), or using all natural, earth-friendly materials (such as plant and mineral-based dyes).
USA Made
At Made Trade it's not enough for a product to just be "USA made" it must also adhere to responsible sourcing of materials used and fair treatment of the person who created it. We curate USA made brands who: pay fair, living wages to their makers, provide safe and healthy working conditions, source materials locally wherever possible, prioritize sustainable growth for their business, and implement eco-friendly practices.
Vegan
Vegan products on Made Trade contain no animal products or byproducts. We curate vegan brands who source natural materials as sustainably as possible, do not use polyurethane or other synthetic faux leather materials (instead use plant-based faux leathers, such as Piñatex or mushroom leather) and implement fair business practices with their suppliers and their employees.
