The Strip-Mesh Gym Bag is made of a one-sided, color-printed, strip-mesh vinyl banner typically used for outdoor print advertisements. I sourced the banner from a local recycling center located in Oakland, California and its original intent was to advertise a Women’s Marathon Run sponsored by Nike in 2011. The reason why strip-mesh vinyl was chosen in the making of the gym bag is because of the material itself. The material allows for 25% to 37% air-flow and it has a PVC coating on the front and back side, making the material highly durable and suitable for the outdoors.
