Lamai Inner Tube & Fabric Cross Body Bag


Beautifully crafted from recycled rubber inner tubes and garment fabric off cuts, the Lamai cross body bag is the ultimate zero waste accessory, cleverly utilising materials that would otherwise go to landfill.

With a detachable strap it can be used either as a cross body or clutch bag depending on the occasion.

It has a zipped YKK enclosure and canvas lining with one internal pocket for storing a phone or other accessories.

The inner tube skin feels great in the hands, and each bag is incredibly durable, just like the truck tyres it came from !

  • Ethically crafted in Thailand from 85% truck tyre inner tube & fabric waste.
  • Measures W27 x H18 cm
  • Vegan friendly
Consisting of husband and wife team Ben and Phon, Truck products are skilfully created from inner tube which is sourced from a variety of tyre garages and motorcycle fix shops in and around Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand. Its durability and aesthetic appeal make it suitable as a substitute for otherwise traditional leather and vinyl products such as bags and accessories. The added weight and toughness of truck inner tube makes it challenging to work with, but once cleaned and cut it can be fashioned into an attractive and unique looking product. While uniformly black in colour, each inner tube is different, with markings varying in terms of the pattern on the tube and some with the manufacturer's brand and/or serial number. In this way no one product is identical to another, and while design and dimensions are consistent, the individualist can be content in knowing that his or her product is a one of a kind.

About Ethical Gift Box

When we set up The Ethical Gift Box we had one simple goal in mind. We wanted to make it easy for people to purchase beautiful gifts that not only delight the people who received them, but equally importantly, impact positively on the environment around us, the people who make them, as well as contributing to causes close to our heart. All our gifts are carefully sourced for the ethical values we see as being most important in today's world. Whilst we recognise it is difficult to source products which fulfil the requirements on all our chosen ethical categories, we do ensure that each product has a positive impact on at least one of them. This includes gifts that have been made using the 10 principles of fair-trade, those which have been cleverly crafted from recycled or upcycled materials, gifts which promote a sustainable lifestyle, cruelty free gifts suitable for vegans, plastic free gifts and gifts which have been sourced locally from British artisans with a low carbon footprint.
