Wave Stitch Inner Tube Belt
This 40mm wide rubber belt is made from four layers of recycled inner tube - so is strong and durable, as well as being incredibly soft and comfortable to wear. It has a sleek, smooth look with feature wave stitching sewn in orange cotton, and a chunky metal buckle which is attached with two poppers making it easily removable for a change of style if preferred.
Hand crafted by trained tailors through a fair trade initiative in Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world.
Please note that due to the upcycled nature of this product, there will be blemishes and variations - you may even be lucky enough to get some manufacturers text or an old puncture repair patch!
Available in two sizes:
34 inches (to fit waist sizes up to 34 inches). Strap length approximately 105cm.
40 inches (to fit waist sizes up to 40 inches). Strap length approximately 116cm.
Due to the hand made nature of this product, sizes may vary slightly. However, extra belt holes can be easily added at home if necessary for a more tailored fit.
Cycle of Good pays above the national living wage and offers full employment rights such as paid holiday and pensions. Regular, reliable employment is essential and very hard to come by in Malawi. With no welfare state, the locals cannot work, and cannot support their families. The Cycle of Good has made lasting positive change for the communities in Chilomoni Township, Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world.
Cycle of Good collect waste inner tubes from cycle shops and cycling clubs throughout the UK and ship them in their own containers to Malawi where they are given to the tailors who carefully craft useful and beautiful items. All the upcycled inner tube products are vegan friendly and ethically hand crafted in Malawi.
