Rareform

What’s Your Bag?

For brothers Alec and Aric Avedissian, it’s helping the planet by repurposing old Billboards. They started Rareform Bags to save landfills from collecting the discarded vinyl fabric. The large sheets are cleaned and cut to create one-of-a-kind tote bags, surf bags, backpacks, wallets, and the like. Shark Tank investor Kevin O’Leary climbed on Board.
By the numbers:
Billboard/fabric size 12’ x 48’
Billboard life expectancy about 4-8 weeks
Rareform Bags currently repurpose 10,000-20,000 lbs a month

That’s Huge!
