Zirkeltraining ~ Recycled Gymnastics- 12.19.08

gymnastics1.jpg I have a thing for messenger bags and a fascination with bags made of out unexpected recycled materials (i think it started with Freitag in high school) ~ and throughout the life of NOTCOT, we’ve looked at so many… from truck tarps to sea sails to parachutes to jackets and more… but when i spotted this at Springwise, i did a double, triple, quadruple take…

Zirkeltraining ~ is a german line of bags, wallets, laptop sleeves, etc made from recycled vintage 1950’s gymnastics equipment… from pummel horses to floor mats to rescue nets… with some truck tarps thrown in as well… Their photography is also eery but captivating… and the whole thing fascinated me until someone mentioned how many crotches have been on 1950’s pummel horse leather… but still… i had to share it with you… so see more pictures on the next page!

Coolest thing about this one ~ was the way it was designed to expand… you pull out the inner flap which has more velcro, and you zip it on the two sides in the back, and the flap just velcros higher!

I think on some level my inner childhood gymnast secretly wants one of these still ~ that worn leather and floor mat blue is pretty awesome…

These are, in fact, bags that I would carry.
