Things don't come much more durable than a car tire. So it makes complete sense to use rubber as a leather alternative!
Manufacturers like Splaff have begun making shoes, belts and wallets from recycled car tires and bicycle inner tubes. What a creative way to reuse a common material while producing necessary accessories with durability and practicality in mind! These shoes, belts and wallets are not only environmentally friendly, but cruelty-free.
Head to your internet search engine and look up "recycled tire" plus "shoe," "belt," "wallet" or "bag" and find the styles that suit you best.
