Tyres Get the Handbag Treatment
A US handbag manufacturer has given tyres the handbag treatment in a bid to make changing nappies a bit more macho. Accessories firm Passchal specialises in producing products from recycled materials and has now designed a “Dad’s baby bag” made from recycled inner tubes, trimmed with hemp, and fitted with a battery operated light. Designer Angela Greene told Reuters the inspiration for the bag came after a female client asked if she could make a baby bag for her husband to use. The “Dad’s baby bag” is priced at about US$175 and is the latest in a line of bags that Passchal is producing using truck and tractor tyre inner tubes.
