Our Process

How we do it

We recycle billboard vinyl and turn it into unique, durable bags and products. Over the past six years we've processed 2 million pounds of vinyl that's destined for landfills.

Source billboards

Billboards from all over the country

We collect bold billboard vinyls from all over the country - currently repurposing 50,000 lbs a month into one-of-a-kind products.

Sort & Clean

Not all billboards are created equal

We love typography, colors, and abstract designs. We aren't into faces, food or logos and our team has strict cutting guidelines. We wash and cut the vinyl in our Los Angeles headquarters, creating unique designs for every product.

Hand cut vinyl

Making the best of what we have

Each item is sewn to create a unique, high-quality, durable product where there's literally nothing like it. Each of our cut pieces are meticulously sewn together using high quality materials to ensure that your bag can endure whatever adventure you take it on. 

Craft unique items

Ensuring we make every piece unique

Every product on our site is one-of-a-kind. That means when it sells, it's gone and we're off repurposing more billboards.

Genuis

I have now bought 5 items and love them all! This is a genuis idea in recycling. They are well made and quite a novelty to talk about. With the movie Three Billboards out, people realize what they are actually seeing when I show them my tote.

Purchased for my San Fran Millennial

My daughter works in a field where she works in the field. She is lugging professional materials around quite a bit. Any choice I make trying to fit her fashion style is usually met with a kinda hearted - Awwe thank you! She is super excited about her messenger bag though. It's big and has a cozy pocket for her laptop and it fits her values and priorities. She is thrilled to tell people where her bag came from and be part of what RAREFORM is doing.

Best Bag for Work!

This is a GREAT messenger bag - I use it as a briefcase and it holds my 15” MacBook Pro with the Rareform cover easily, has lots of additional room, the shoulder strap if a great size & distributes the weight evenly. I LOVE it!! Get lots of compliments and it is VERY well made! Perfect for weather + style + room to carry lots of things.

LOVE this RE-purposing!

I actually bought billboards in my old job, so when I saw that you guys actually did something with them, I was intrigued! I love the vibrant color, the super soft protection for my laptop, the inner pockets for small items that I need everyday. The strap is sturdy and easy on my shoulder. I love that it's not being wasteful with product. Will totally buy again!
