Defy Bags: Defying Expectations by Repurposing with Purpose!

Repurposing is the chic way of rolling with the punches in this rough and tumble economy.  When the going gets tough, the tough get resourceful!  A friend in Chicago works for an awesome company called "Defy Bags." that does just that.  (THANKS FOR THE GREAT TIP, DANA!)

Defy Bags uses unexpected found materials such as truck flaps, bicycle tires, seat belts, vintage military wool blankets and canvas tents to create chic, understated bags with an authentic and rich feel.  Styles range from messenger bags to purses, and are great for an urban sophisticate, a bicyclist on the go, or even a small-town regular-joe.  

The company has a history rooted in American Heritage.  All of the products are handmade in the good ole U S of A on vintage sewing machines.  The products are authentic, well-made and most importantly, support the American economy.  To learn more about Defy Bags and to order products online, click here!
