Turning lead into gold – that’s the medieval science of alchemy. And just like those metallurgical wizards of old, Alchemy Goods is hard at work turning the useless into something useful. Perusing places like bike shops and junk yards for the materials of their craft, Alchemy Goods conjures up some pretty interesting items, like this super sized Queen Anne wallet made from used bicycle inner tubes. The end result are one-of-a-kind items that make recycling a rather fashionable endeavor.
I replaced my old wallet with a Queen Anne wallet, and what struck me most the first time I looked it over was how well constructed it is. The exterior, made of the recycled bicycle inner tubes, looks sort of like distressed leather. The interior is put together with the care you’d expect if purchasing a pricey designer wallet or handbag. Lots of pockets and slots, a pen holder, id window, cash pocket, and oodles of eco-coolness have made the Queen Anne a quick favorite of mine. Whenever it’s time to get my wallet from my purse, I’m always hoping for an excuse to tell someone “It’s made of recycled inner tubes!”
