Having seen something very like these on holiday this summer, we sought out a supplier for a new collaboration and discovered Australia’s Buck!t. The new Shutt 'signature' wallets are handmade from upcycled tubular tyres, using latex & butyl inner-tube for the inside pockets.
There’s lots we like about these. They’re green, they’re vegan, and all the packaging is 100% recycled or upcycled card.
The tubular tyres used to make the CorsaSC wallets came from the Giant Alpecin ProTour Team (Collected from the mechanic at the Tour Downunder).
Each type of tubular tyre has its own look depending on its manufacturing / construction:
- VITTORIA Corsa SC (ProTour tyre - yellow/black version; cream fabric internally)
- CONTINENTAL Competition (racing-favourite - black tread with Kevlar edges; black inside)
- VITTORIA Pista (track cycling tubular - fine filetooth tread with dark grey edges; cream inside)
- ZIPP Tangente (clean, modern black tread with grey edges; light grey inside)
We expect the first batch of these to sell out very quickly and will be ordering more in time for Christmas.
