Recycled Inner Tube Tote Bag
Another beautiful bag in our fair trade recycled tyre range. This stunning tote bag is made from recycled inner tubes and cotton canvas. It is great as an everyday bag, with plenty of room and pockets to carry everything you need - there is even a handy side pocket that can fit an umbrella or a water bottle. But it is also definitely glamorous enough for a night out too! The tread of the recycled tyres provides a really interesting texture and the peacock trim gives a beautiful pop of colour. Practicality and beautiful design with strong eco-friendly credentials. What's not to like?
Dimensions: H 33cm x L 38cm x W 10cm
These bags are made by Smart Crafts, a small group of artisans in Cambodia who mainly work from their homes and focus on employing victims of landmines and polio. They are brought to us by Lost in Samsara who, like us, are members of BAFTS Fair Trade Network UK.
The upcycling of old tyres saves these waste materials from going into landfill, so they are a great sustainable product. Also, the use of these recycled materials provides a fantastic vegan alternative to leather bags.
