Beautifully crafted from recycled rubber inner tubes and garment fabric off cuts, the Lamai cross body bag is the ultimate zero waste accessory, cleverly utilising materials that would otherwise go to landfill.
With a detachable strap it can be used either as a cross body or clutch bag depending on the occasion.
It has a zipped YKK enclosure and canvas lining with one internal pocket for storing a phone or other accessories.
The inner tube skin feels great in the hands, and each bag is incredibly durable, just like the truck tyres it came from !
Ethically crafted in Thailand from 85% truck tyre inner tube & fabric waste.

PLEASE NOTE THIS ITEM CANNOT BE GIFT WRAPPED
Consisting of husband and wife team Ben and Phon, Truck products are skilfully created from inner tube which is sourced from a variety of tyre garages and motorcycle fix shops in and around Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand.
Its durability and aesthetic appeal make it suitable as a substitute for otherwise traditional leather and vinyl products such as bags and accessories.
The added weight and toughness of truck inner tube makes it challenging to work with, but once cleaned and cut it can be fashioned into an attractive and unique looking product.
While uniformly black in colour, each inner tube is different, with markings varying in terms of the pattern on the tube and some with the manufacturer's brand and/or serial number.
In this way no one product is identical to another, and while design and dimensions are consistent, the individualist can be content in knowing that his or her product is a one of a kind.
