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.

It's hard to believe this shoulder bag has been handcrafted using discarded car and truck tire tubes in El Salvador. In fact, Afra's street smart design proves these oft-discarded waste items, an environmental hazard when littered throughout the countryside, make the ideal medium for creating tough, durable and practical fashion accessories, and that to recycle is a beautiful thing.

  • Measures 17 inches wide x 7 inches high x 5 1/2 inches deep
  • 27 inch adjustable strap (14 inch drop length) and zipper closure
  • Pinstriped cotton lining, cell phone pocket, 8 x 3.5 inch zippered pocket, and built-in clasp for keys

Due to its recycled nature, no two bags are alike. While general outline and measurements are consistent, patterns on rubber will vary. Handmade in El Salvador and fair trade imported.
