Our vegan fashion accessories include handbags, tote bags, crossbody bags, backpacks & other accessories. Proudly handmade by artisans in El Salvador using repurposed tire inner tube and no animal by-products. We cut, adapt and sew small tire inner tube accents and details as a unique piece of art assembled into a stylish one-of-a-kind accessory.

SPUREN is a German word that means “leaving a track”. When you wear a SPUREN® product you are leaving a positive footprint in our planet.

What is upcycling?

Upcycling is the method of converting waste materials and useless products into something more desirable and more valuable.

There is a key difference between upcycling and recycling. Turning waste into reusable products is classed as recycling, for example, melting down old tire inner tubes to remake new ones requires more energy consumption. SPUREN® repurposes tire inner tubes through a low energy consumption process. We cut, sew and adapt small tire inner tube accents and details as a unique piece of art assembled into a stylish one-of-a-kind accessory.

Upcycled tire inner tubes, prevented from reaching landfills and counting. SPUREN® products make a positive impact in the environment by preventing further pollution, every week we drive several hours to collect hard-to-upcycle materials, like tire inner tube and billboard vinyl, from tire shops, manufacturers and socially responsible companies and use them as part of the raw materials to make our bags.
