NeoMatic is a colombian entrepreneurship that started in 2017, we are based in Medellín, Colombia, we design and create urban bags, backpacks, and messenger bags with the inner tubes we recycle from the local bike shops that help us.
In a world with consumption dynamics that produce waste way greater than the system’s capacity to recycle it, it is necessary to find ways to reutilize those supplies, otherwise they will contaminate for a few centuries until they completely degrade.
Our artisanal bags mainly use rubber tubes as raw material, our products help to reduce the amount of waste heading to landfills and therefore possibly contaminating water sources and other parts of our enviroment.
Our main motivation is to generate a more responsible consumption habit, offering environmentally friendly, high quality products that are waterproof, last longer and are function-oriented. That drives us to responsibly produce utilitarian, high end, bags that are also practical for the modern urban lifestyle, while maintaining a reasonable price.
The NeoMatic Workshop is based in Medellín, Colombia, in this workshop we design and create backpacks, messenger bags, tote bags, roll top bags, fanny packs and other accesories by hand mainly using recycled bicycle inner tubes.
Since our costumers are mostly people who use the bicycle to work, commute or as a hobby we have designed products to fit their needs, that’s why we have messenger bags and cargo bags for the bike messengers, hands free bags for the commuters and handlebar bags, saddle bags and other bags for bikes.
By July 2020, our workshop recycles approximately 500 bicycle tubes each month, we have an unique technique to turn the used inner tubes into the products that we proudly present to the world.
The bags we make are distributed online through this website, and marketplaces like BikeExchange, MercadoLibre, Bella in Sella Cycling Boutique and in local bike shops in Bogotá, Medellín and Cali. We ship to all of Colombia, the United States, and soon Canada and the European Union.
