Recycled Tyre Round Bag
Do you need an everyday small shoulder bag that is glamorous enough to take you into an impromptu evening out? Then look no further than this sleek fair trade recycled tyre bag from Lost in Samsara. It has an unusual round shape with a top handle and an adjustable shoulder strap, as well as a handy inside pocket. The use of tyres makes the bag strong and waterproof as well as eco friendly. But are you worried it may look too utilitarian? Not a chance! The tread of the recycled tyres gives a really interesting texture and the silver zip is incredibly chic. And that is before you even get to the gorgeous floral lining inside!

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.
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.
