ReStyle Tire Tube Bracelets

February 20, 2015

Chic style for your wrists from ReStyle! The recycled tire tube cuffs pictured below are made by artisans in Bogota, Colombia. While Colombia is currently making headlines as a growing economic success story, there is still a tremendous wealth gap in the country and a large urban low-income population. In addition, there are vast numbers of displaced people living in Bogota who have been uprooted from their homes due to narco-terrorism and political conflicts. ReStyle's partner Sapia works with these at-risk families and individuals to provide stable income to help them create a better future. Artisans are trained to work with a variety of natural and recycled materials, ranging from tire tubes to rainforest seeds to recycled orange peels.
