KB bags

The most fun you can have with rubber in public

…and it’s not just the rubber that’s recycled. Car seatbelts are transformed into durable bag straps and the linings are all end of line designer fabrics. As for the rubber itself, KB’s alchemical constructions transmogrify inner tubes, bike tyres and rubber mats into waterproof wallets and durable bags with bounce.
