Cool bags made from truck inner tires
These cool bags and accessories are made from recycled truck inner tires - a material that is not only very supple and strong but also allows for a great diversity of textures. Coupled with our sober design and sophisticated colour tones and details, this makes for a cool, über-hip effect. The range includes trendy handbags and shoulder bags, and also messenger bags and laptop cases for both women and men.
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. Used rubber tires as main raw material . The rubber is recovered, sanitized and purified through a chemical free process, then classified, cut in patterns for each product, assembled and sewn together.
MoreThanHip Re3 is also playing its part in society: its products are made by socially disadvantaged people, such as single mothers and people from the slums. They are assured of good working conditions and pay above the minimum wage. So - fair trade!
