When used rubber inner-tubes from tires of any kind of vehicle are discarded, it takes more than 500 years to decompose, and if burned they are highly contaminating.
Around 100.000 tons of this material is disposed every year, only in Argentina.
Recycling is a compromise with the planet, and fashion has to do its part.
Two years ago, Neumatica decided to save inner tubes and make them roll again, turning them into daily design objects.
All rubber inner-tubes are plain and have no texture when new, but after being used, the heat of the tires transfers the design to them, so you will find multiple textures in Neumatica products.
Each finished piece has the story of many miles driven.
