The inner tube skin feels great in the hands, and each wallet is incredibly durable, just like the truck tyres it came from !
Ethically crafted in Thailand from 95% truck tyre inner tube.
Measures W 11 x H 9.5 cm
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.
