The Zabo Bicycle Tire Belt Story

In March 2015, on a cold night in London, I realised that I don't want to stay in UK anymore. I have a friend who invited me to help his business in Africa and on that famous and windy night I decided to leave. I wanted to refresh my life and forget my daily routine.  Only 3 weeks later I was living in Tanzania.  I am  nature lover, I can spend days and hours just being alone in a forest, mountains, I am happier there than anywhere else.

It is the time to highlight solutions and start to change for the future! We have caused these problems and must find the solution. Would you be...

OUR FIRST EVER COMMERCIAL VIDEO

Hey everyone!! I am so excited to announce that I have been working on my first ever commercial video for Laura Zabo. I was lucky enough to discover a beautiful woodland nature reserve in Enfield which was the perfect location for the video. There were so many beautiful trees and lakes. I showcased some of my products, including the Laser Bicycle Tyre Belt, Spikey Inner Tube Earrings and the new DIY Vegan Car Tyre Sandals with interchangeable straps from my sustainable vegan line which looked perfect on the models, Miles De Chambis and Joanna Finata. The main focus of this commercial video was to get the point across that up-cycled fashion can be sexy, classy and look good on any...
