Alchemy is the medieval science of turning lead into gold. More generally, it means magically turning something of lesser value into something of greater value. For us, the value isn't economical so much as ecological. We look for materials that are normally discarded that might have value with a little bit of imagination and some hard work.Every Alchemy Goods bag purchased represents one less part of our world destroyed.
