We are stoked by the idea that re-purposing is a win-win garbage solution for everyone. Siklo upcycled products have soul because they are made by hand. Passion is next to attention in the making of every piece. Like fingerprints, no same design items are identical. Each product has its own unique character and individuality. With such traits, wearing a Siklo bag makes you feel sexier.
By and by, it became a sustainable eco-ethical enterprise as conscientious consumerism starts trending. It was established in 2012 and overtime had upcycled over 17 tons of discarded tyre inner tube. Island backpacking also evolved into island bikepacking where some Siklo designs were tested. Laid-back and simple characterize eco-friendly bags.
