Manufacturing Process

The first thing we do is gather the materials.

We search places where used  rubber tires are procesed and converted back into raw materials. We look at the materials discarded by companies and we are continuously searching for materials from renewable resource  and for new ways to use alternative materials.

Each material has distinctive details, like textures, prints and various paterns. We leave these in so you can see that each product is truly recycled and thus, unique.

Each product is assembled by hand in our workshop, which is another reason that no two products are exactly the same. We take our time examining them each step of the way to ensure that quality is never sacrificed out of haste.


Our Materials
