Swiss retailer Freitag has created a line of unique travel bags called R531 Coolidge that are made from upcycled tarpaulins collected from old trucks. The collection features various technicolor neon bags that are ideal for busy jet setters.

Making bags from recycled tarpaulin is actually an ingenious idea since the material is incredibly durable and waterproof making these bags super long-lasting. The bags are made from upcycled colorful tarpaulins that were used on trucks for over ten years. The aging has added a chic distressed look to the tarpaulin material that has been cut up and repurposed to make these luxurious travel bags. The bags come with a sleek fold over top complete with seamless pockets and side clips for sturdy travel.
