tires into fashion by Laura ZaboShop now
My upcycling journey began three years ago while I was exploring the beautiful country of Tanzania. I was inspired by seeing items made by the Maasai for sale in the markets in Tanzania. I realized that I could create fashion that was beautiful but also that would use materials that were destined just to be thrown away, take generations to break down and poison the Earth. Now we can not only save, but also celebrate, these tyres and tubes!

ZABO ZERO WASTE SCHEME:
If you have bought a ZABO product at any time but no longer use it for any reason, we offer a discount on your next purchase if you send it back to us instead of throwing it away. In this way we can continue to upcycle these tires, so that the waste is minimised as much as possible.
Join the movement
By purchasing a ZABO item, you help to save 1 tire from a landfill. Scrap tires are a rapidly growing problem on this planet, with over 3 billion tires dumped globally every year. They take decades to break down and often pile up on landfill sites, taking up valuable space and clogging up our planet. We need to find imaginative and creative eco-solutions for the increasing amount of waste on our planet and transform it into useful and sustainable treasure.
Why Fast-Fashion Brands Are Under Pressure To Change Their Ways
It is becoming harder and harder for us to love our clothes and wear them the way we once did when we are being faced with more insights into the way in which they are being made and produced. Fast fashion is becoming an increasingly worrisome problem, as the industry focuses on speed and costs rather than the environment and those working in the factories.
