Recycled Car Parts Used In Fashionable Accessories

Fun & Fashion From Recycled Goods


These days, "fashion wear" stretches the imagination like never before. Here are some interesting items made from recycled car, truck, and tire parts.

  • If you're into recycling, environmentally-friendly materials, and hugging trees... or you just subscribe to the theory "waste not, want not"... then you'll surely appreciate the following environmentally conscious clothing & fashion wear.
  • If you're just into fashion for fashion's sake, and you're always on the lookout for something fresh, new, and different... then you'll really dig these hip & cool new ideas.

Check out how recycled parts are being converted into chic and fashionable styles for all ages... men and women alike.

The best part about recycled clothing: No two are exactly alike, meaning you've always got a one-of-a-kind original. Plus, the odds are, it will last you a lifetime (...some are even GUARANTEED for life!)
