Katcha Bilek's Profile

About

Welcome to Katcha Bilek on Etsy!

The bags and purses are made of truck inner tubes. The straps on them are old car seatbelts. The belts are made of bike tyres.

All these materials are collected locally and everything (except the trimmings) is cut and sewn by hand in my Bristol workshop without the use of industrial machinery or exploited labour!

The materials make a great alternative to animal products and their properties mean that each product is unique: a bag can be cut from the same pattern as another but the outcome will always be different.

Happy Shopping!
