Upcycled Inner Tube Wallet
These slimline wallets are handmade from punctured bicycle inner tubes. They feature two card pockets (which can hold more than one card, due to the grippy nature of the material) and a larger pocket for notes. They close with an antique bronze- or silver- coloured metal popper.
All Team Sikel products are handmade from upcycled materials, and no two are exactly alike. The pictures shown on this page are examples only, and your product will vary depending on the inner tube used. The final products can be a plain black for a leather look, or feature coloured stripes, writing, patches, or wear that show off their previous lives. If you’re looking for something in particular, please message me before placing your order.
The wallets range from about 10-11cm wide and are about 17cm long when opened.
The inner tubes used to make these wallets were reclaimed from bike shops near me and donations. They’re thoroughly cleaned before being transformed into functional accessories but may still mark light surfaces. Inner tubes are made from a vegan-friendly butyl rubber which isn't widely recycled in the UK. Unless the inner tubes are patched or upcycled, they'll most likely end up in landfill.
