Covet: Repurposed Car Parts and Inner Tubes Become Mariclaro Bags

CADILLAC LIMITED CAR EDITION - RECYCLED bag by MARICLARO - CADI X002 MADE IN CACADILLAC LIMITED CAR EDITION - RECYCLED bag by MARICLARO - CADI X001 MADE IN CA

Way back when I bought my first used car, friends of mine took me to a local scrapyard. We searched for abandoned and forgotten parts to “spruce” up my new ride. Had I had a bit more ingenuity, I may have stripped down the old car seats and removed the seat belts to make beautiful and functional bags.

Thankfully the team at Mariclaro had this fantastic idea and the results are certainly “Covet” worthy.

Cadillac Bags are available here and here.
Lincoln Bags are available here and here.

Now, if car branding and seat upholstery aren’t quite your “bag,” then Mariclaro has something else in the works. Bags made of old inner tubes. Here’s a peek at a bag being assembled and the finished product:
