Sourced is a family business based in Cornwall UK making truck tarp bags & accessories. In 2011 we launched our first truck tarp messenger bag and haven't stopped since. We make messenger bags, shoulder totes, shopping bags and more.
Our products are made from upcycled lorry curtains that are being thrown out after thousands of miles on the road networks of Europe. This thick, waterproof material would otherwise end up in landfill and produces unique bags due to logo designs left on the material from it's previous life. No two items are ever the same and we're constantly on the look out for new material.
Every product is hand-cut from the tarp before being machine washed twice with an organic solution. Once all the pieces are ready we sew them together with an industrial machine into sturdy, unique goods.
All items are handmade in the West Country. Raw material is processed at the industrial unit near Truro before being sent for assembly either in house or at local sewing workshops.
Tarpaulin is sourced primarily from UK haulage firms & occasionally from European firms. All inner tube is collected from local bike shops with fixtures and fittings being provided by UK wholesalers in the cut / sew industry.
