If you've been around the green scene for some time, you may feel some ideas get a little tired over time. That could have been the case for bags from recycled tires, but ever since I got one (not from this brand, of course) I've felt quite in love with it: it doesn't need any cleaning and looks exactly the same every time, resembles leather nicely (which as a vegetarian I don't use or buy) but you can see it's something else, and the rubber is super durable. At the final disposal it gets a little tricky, but I really don't see that coming for a long time, and when I need to get rid of it I suppose it can be recycled into something like flooring as regular tires.
For all of these reasons, I was happy to see Colombian brand Cyclus' new models, which are from recycled tires but also very chic.
We had talked about them briefly some time ago , but they've really come a long way and have extended their work in interesting ways.
Cyclus is based in Bogotá and also sells online. For more, visit their website.
