Sturdy Recycled Tires

After having traveled on the bumpy roads of the Syrian Desert for thousands of kilometres, car tires are thrown into open dumps where a different life awaits them. Our dedicated craftsmen select the, wash off the dust, and create these indestructible pots and baskets. Great as a collection piece, and ideal for outdoor and indoor gardening and displaying plants, flowers or other items.

VAN VERRE has been working with an atelier in Syria for many years which has sadly been greatly affected by the war. Despite the conflict, a temporary workshop was started in a refugee camp where the craftsmen are working with great courage and passion. Unfortunately the initiative may not last and the recycled tires might therefore disappear from our collection.

Use: Gently rub with pure soap and a sponge to maintain the smooth black appearance, and to give it a gentle shine.
