Design: Lug Trugs
Materials: Recycled Tire Rubber
Pitch: "Made in Chicago from recycled tire rubber, Strand Design's line of Lug Trugs are beautiful, versatile and functional objects. We start by cutting the patterns out of recycled rubber sheets using a water jet cutting machine."
"Each bag is then stitched together by hand using high strength polyester thread. Whether it's newspapers, plants, magazines, or firewood, Lug Trugs are the solution to storing your stuff, in style."
Designer: Ted and Sharon Burdett
