Uca Ruffatti Artisan Story
El Salvador

UCA Tire Tubes 200x191In Santa Ana, El salvador, discarded truck and car tires litter the road, ravines, and rivers, causing harm to the environment. Fortunately, one small artisan group, Uca Ruffatti, is not only helping to clean up the mess, but turning waste it into beautiful and functional works of art! Uca Ruffatti collects the inner tubes from the discarded tires and uses them to create handbags, purses, wallets and cosmetic bags in a variety of sizes and designs. The long-lasting toughness of the material contributes to the products' extensive life and durability. Some items are accented with recycled leather scraps and locally-grown cotton and indigo.

Compact is key with our cute Juanita clutch, whose petite frame is handmade from tire tubes discarded from car and truck tires in El Salvador. Just big enough for cell phones, money clips, credit cards and the car keys, Juanita is proof that to recycle is a beautiful thing.

  • 14 inch wrist strap
  • Pinstriped cotton lining with zipper closure

Due to its recycled nature, no two bags are exactly the same. While measurements and designs are consistent, patterns on rubber will vary. Handmade in El Salvador and fair trade imported.
