|THE ORIGINAL INNER TUBE HANDBAG!
USED RUBBER USA pioneered the idea of transforming waste inner tubes into fashionable products over 25 years ago. We have been redefining the reuse of rubber and paving the way for others ever since with our eco modern design, craft and education. Our wallets, bags, and accessories are made in the USA from reclaimed inner tubes, a high-quality industrial rubber. We work with waste truck, bicycle, motorcycle, and auto tubes. All of the rubber is post-consumer waste that we reclaim from the waste stream ourselves.

As you will see, Used Rubber USA is an unusual company, both in what we make -- recycled inner tube wallets and bags -- and in how we choose to do business. Our goal is not only to create great products, but also to promote eco-smart design in the process. Our exposure in the press and the teaching we have done at universities and design schools since the early 1990's have inspired new ideas about recycling and reuse and we are proud to see so many designers following our path-breaking work.
For the last decade much of the focus of Used Rubber USA has been on education. Through workshops and classes we have been able to advance sustainability in design and promote the acceptance of non traditional materials such as reclaimed inner tube rubber. My latest project is a collection of stories and projects from my 25+ years working with this material. If you have a story to share about your experiences with our products please email it to us and we may be able to include it in the collection.
If you would like a better image of any of our products please email us at email@example.com and we would be happy to email a jpeg to you. You can also visit my art & design website to see more images, a glimpse of past styles and some one of a kind and limited edition art and design pieces made with this engaging material.
Used Rubber USA products are for people
who appreciate well-crafted design and for those who know that the consumer
goods an individual buys have a direct effect on the environment. Explore our site to find out how we got started, where we are headed, and what we have done in the process! We hope
you will find our ethical, socially and environmentally sound business
practices as exciting as we do.
