Realizing that vinyl makes the perfect material to manufacture bags since it’s durable and waterproof, the clever monkeys at Gorilla Sacks create bags out of recycled vinyl billboards. This new Atlanta based company makes each bag by hand out of scrapped billboards, but not before photographing the original billboard so you can see it in its former glory. Each bag stands as a unique piece of art and no two are exactly alike.
