Just came across this site, thought it might be of interest. Seems they make wallets (amongst other things) from old leather belts. Haven't seen anything like it before.

The idea is nice , but with recycled materials it should'nt be that expensive imo.

Yeah reckon you're right. Probably costs more than buying the belts! Nice idea though. Be tempted to make one myself if I had any sort of sewing skill - but I haven't so it would look awful :lol:

Does something similar but with salvaged tires. I have a toiletry case made by them and it's really nice. I've been considering the wallet but I was concerned about getting it out easily.

The other cool thing is that each piece is unique, if the tire had some marking on it, it will show up on the item.
