Our Process

How we do it

We recycle billboard vinyl and turn it into unique, durable bags and products. Over the past seven years we've processed 3 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 100,000 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.

Great Backpack

I was on the lookout for a replacement for a similarly styled backpack that was starting to come apart. When I saw this, I was excited by the idea of recycled vinyl as the cover! I am anxious to see how it holds up over time, because so far it is a good size, with great pockets. I wished I could have gotten something more colorful, but maybe in the future! I hope Rareform continues to make this style.

Brooklyn Backpack

This backpack is super awesome. It has amazing features and is built well. Only complaint, the red is starting to wear off, but that's not rareform's fault. They didn't print the vinyl.
