Ex Londoner and current fashion designer Laura Zabo has drawn on not only her own lifestyle choices but also her life experiences to create her remarkable range of handmade fashion accessories.
Working with discarded bicycle/car tyres and inner tubes that she saves from a future as landfill, she has developed a visually stunning and environmentally focused selection of belts, jewellery, clothing, sandals and even dog accessories. And now you can win a £100 Gift Card and choose your favourite upcycled ZABO products.
Accessories from trash
The abundance of trash is a tremendous problem for us and our planet, and we need to make more room for ideas that help us get rid of it or transform the excess, instead of producing more and more.
Zabo was inspired by seeing items made by the Maasai for sale in the markets in Tanzania. She realized that she could create fashion that was beautiful but also that would use materials that were destined just to be thrown away, taking generations to break down. Today, she makes all of her accessories from discarded tyres.
Every tyre and tube has its own story and no two products are identical. Individually collected, retooled and reborn, Laura Zabo’s fashion range is an ode to the recycling and low waste movements. Whilst her belts and jewellery may ease your conscience, her look and style is paramount – this is not ‘make do and mend,’ but rather a couture makeover for something that would otherwise just be binned.
These tyres and tubes may have been designed to spend their working life in rotation but, now that they have been saved from the dump, it is their time to shine – now that’s what we call a revolution. From bike lane to high street, Laura Zabo is taking the mundane and making it marvelous; this is high fashion with a low impact.
Enter now to win! Your £100 gift card is valid on any belt, jewellery or dog accessory.
