SILCA Partners With Ecologic Design For A Limited Edition Backpack And Essentials Bag

SILCA Introduces The Anniversary Collection SILCA Brooklyn Backpack And Borsa Americano Essentials Bag

Indianapolis, IN - SILCA - - in partnership with EcoLogic Designs of Colorado introduces the SILCA Brooklyn Backpack and Borsa Americano essentials bag as a special addition to the centennial anniversary collection. Stylish, beautifully made, and constructed of recycled bicycle inner-tubes these everyday riding partners have quickly become staff favorites around the SILCA office.

SILCA Brooklyn Backpack

We were first introduced to this backpack by one of our design engineers who uses it as a commuter pack to and from the office. It's stylish, beautifully made, and constructed of recycled bicycle inner-tubes. What's not to like?  Not long after, we noticed that there were three of them being used around the office so we put in a call to Colorado-based EcoLogic Design to talk about a special anniversary collaboration. Of course, we couldn't do a project this cool and keep it to ourselves so we're offering these on our site in extremely limited quantities!

The Brooklyn is a sleek yet spacious backpack featuring a padded laptop sleeve compartment, a number of internal organization dividers and a pair of easy-access outside pockets. Padded straps made for a comfortable carry, even for heavier loads. Stylish, durable, recycled and highly water resistant. The bag is then finished with our signature red knurl stitching across the front and also features the SILCA Centennial logo in the top right.

Borsa Americano 

We partnered with Colorado-based EcoLogic Designs to create this simple yet stylish limited-edition storage solution for your everyday riding.  Constructed of recycled bicycle inner-tubes and recycled wetsuit neoprene the Borsa Americano is designed by SILCA and sewn by EcoLogic featuring four internal pockets of various sizes to give you plenty of storage options. The main compartment is designed exactly to the dimensions of an iPhone 7+ with a case, resulting in minimal bulk or excess material. For the rest of the bag, it's really up to you what you want to carry. This bag is less structured than other SILCA bags, allowing the user to pack it however they like for minimal bulk and size.  The large inner side pocket is perfect for storing cash or credit cards, while other pockets can hold everything from your house key to patch kit. This bag is slightly longer than the SILCA phone or EOLO wallet, but thinner and narrower.
