made in Syria
by traditional tyre workshop now relocated as refugees
made of truck tires (recycled)
dimensions Ø60cm x 30cm
A sturdy product made of recycled rubber. Indestructibly good, available in different shapes and sizes. After having travelled on the bumpy roads between the Euphrates and Tigris for thousands of miles, the used tires are given a second life. With repetitious perfection the crude material is cut up and reassembled with a needle and coarse thread. The pots and baskets can be used in- and outdoors to store various items. Strong and functional, whether you are collecting, planting or presenting. VAN VERRE has been working with an atelier in Syria for many years. A country which has been greatly affected by war. Despite the conflict, a temporary workshop was set up in the middle of a refugee camp, where the craftsmen work with great courage and passion. It is uncertain if this initiative may last and therefore the recycled tires might disappear from our collection. Help our courageous craftsmen!
To store newspapers, blankets, empty bottles, wood blocks, toys or just anything you can think of.
After a long and uncertain period the recycled tires have come back. Handmade and manufactured by craftsmen who have fled Aleppo. Support the craftsmen and help them in these difficult times.
