<p></p> <p><strong>Seoul Street Banner Laptop Bag</strong></p> <p>Made from original nylon street banners from Seoul, Korea, these bags from Poketo easily hold and protect a laptop and accessories. The padded insides are roomy enough to hold a 17-inch <a href="http://rugged-laptop-review.toptenreviews.com/?a_aid=aff1010" target="_blank" title="Rugged laptop review">laptop</a>. Two big zippered outside pockets hold computer accessories and small belongings. The adjustable handles are made from reclaimed seat belts. Each is unique. Limited quantity.</p> <p>Size: 17.5” x 13”, padded interior. Strap adjusts from 27” to 56”.</p> <p>Price: $225</p> <p>Available from <a href="http://poketo.com/shop/accessories?product_id=1240" target="_blank" title="Poketo">Poketo</a></p> <p><strong>Good to know:</strong></p> <p>What is upcycling? Upcycling is taking an item that would otherwise be tossed in the trash and turning it into something that extends its life. Unlike recycling, the original item is not broken down into its components, crushed, or melted. And upcycling is more than just reusing a disposable item. Here, street banners are used for a different purpose: the fabric to make laptop bags.</p> <p></p>
