Recycled Bike Tube Belt - The Ballard
The Ballard Belt is made from reclaimed bike tubes! The belts are made with one tube wrapped around another to create four layers of rubber. The highlight stitching allows the belt to stretch just enough for comfort, but the rubber construction ensures the belt won’t stretch out permanently over time. This upcycled product is vegan, leather-free and includes a sharp looking, removable brushed steel buckle.
Recycled Bike Tube Belt features:
- Constructed from durable, water resistant upcycled bicycle inner tubes (90% of product is from upcycled materials)
- Belt height 1.25 – 1.5 inches
- Removable brushed steel buckle included
- Available in various stitching colors and sizes
