The Slim mini wallet is made from recycled inner tubes of trucks and semi eco leather. This is leather tanned with 50% less chemicals, resulting in a beautifully rugged appearance. The color of the leather, which is finished with a black crackle topcoat, provides a nice contrast with the black of the rubber.
The collection is produced by Sapia, the largest fair trade supplier of Colombia. The studio is located in a very poor suburb of Bogota (Bolivar city). This is a small workshop where the staff are trained and receive a good salary.
Brand: MoreThanHip-tyre bags
Recycling of truck inner tires
The MoreThanHip tyre tube collection is made of recycled truck inner tubes. From a distance this material just looks like black leather. But close by you see it has to be something different.
The tyre tube collection includes trendy handbags and shoulder bags, and also messenger bags and laptop cases for both women and men.
Strong, wear resistant, supple and waterproof
Inner tube is very practical material: wear resistant, waterproof and easy to clean. The rubber is well cleaned and treated with environmentally friendly means, which hardly smells or stains. In use, it becomes even more beautiful because the tire tube gets a soft shine.
In addition, these items are easy to clean with water and a cloth. And if you accidentally get a hole in it, this is easy to fix with a sticker for bicycle tires.
The collection is made in Colombia (South America), where there is a concerted effort to recycle vehicle tires to help make the environment cleaner. A great deal of material that used to be simply burnt (releasing hazardous substances!) is now receiving a new lease of life.
Fair production in Colombia
The Made in Barrio collection is made in Bogotá, the capital of Colombia. The workshop is located in Bolivar City, a very poor slum area and operates according to fair trade standards. Socially disadvantaged residents, like single mothers, get a steady job, are trained and receive a good salary, according to local standards. In this way, people at the bottom of society get a chance of a better life. So: Fair trade!
