Most of Alchemy Goods products are made from reclaimed inner tubes. Since each one is unique, and comes from a different truck, with different rubber of a different origin, some have a more noticeable odor than others. The odor can be strong initially and will decrease over time. Like anything aromatic, it will smell stronger in warm weather than it does in cool weather. In addition, different people have different levels of sensitivity to this.
Please try washing the bag on gentle with a mild detergent or scented softer if no other solution has worked to remove a lasting smell.
If your item still has a strong smell that is not going away, please contact us to arrange a return.
