I manufacture handmade bags,jewelleries & accessories from used inner tubes, electronic componets and wood

Welcome to my shop!

I have been designing and creating handmade convertible bags, jewelery, accessories and other every day use products from recycled inner tubes and tires from vehicles for many years.

In 2012 I happened to be in a car repair shop and started experimenting with a car tire with the aim of turning it into a new useful object. The rubber after a lot of processing ended up becoming a handmade belt.

Τhat's how the idea for Convert Art started...!

Αnd at present i make more than 90 different products in over 25 different color and i sell them inover 45 points of sale in Greece.

Αll these years i have been exhibite my creations at various exhibitions and markets,
In 2014 i won an award at the Greek Design = Good Design contest.
while in 2016 the Convert Art collection of polymorphic bags was awarded with the Top Design Award for 2016. In December of the same year, Convert Art was selected to participate in the European Final of the StartUp Europe Awards in Brussels.

In 2014, after many hours of reading, research and experimentation with the material, I managed to find a process of 5 steps of process to cleaning it for do not smell rubber, and for prepair the material to retention the paint color (if i want to paint it) on its surface.
That's how I got the European patent for this technique that I apply to this day in all inner tubes.

In the end of 2014 i was create a workshop in a small village near Athens to collect, process, design and construction the inner tubes.

Within the first 6 years, it has reused more than 30 tons of inner tubes, giving them life again, while protecting the environment from the pollution.
