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.
