UPCYCLED, ECO-CONSCIOUS, ETHICAL AND VEGAN PRODUCTS

Scrap tires are becoming a huge problem to our planet - they take generations to break down and often end up clogging up landfills. Zabo's solution is to repurpose them into high-quality fashion accessories such as beautiful belts. Tire is a fantastic substitute for leather and with a little creativity and imagination there is no limit to what we can make out of scrap tires. I would love to inspire others to join me in upcycling as much as possible and together we can help make a real difference to the planet, tire by tire! All ZABO products are 100% sustainable, vegan and eco-friendly, handmade in London.

MEET LAURA ZABO

Laura's upcycling journey began when she was exploring the beautiful country of Tanzania. Captivated by the wild open spaces, the vibrant colours, and the warm generous people. Her life changed when she caught sight of some handmade brightly-painted sandals at a Maasai market. These innovative sandals were made entirely out of repurposed car tires. Immediately Laura fell in love with the idea that functional products could be created out of trash, and I knew that I simply had to share this brilliant idea with the world.

Scrap tyres are a rapidly growing problem on this planet, with over 3 billion tyres dumped globally every year. They take decades to break down and often pile up on landfill sites, taking up valuable space and clogging up our planet. We need to find imaginative and creative eco-solutions for the increasing amount of waste on our planet and transform it into useful and sustainable treasure. From the moment Laura saw those car tyre sandals, she knew that this had to be her mission in life.

 

After returning from Africa Laira was inspired to begin crafting tire belts at home, going on to sell her handmade fashion accessories at the London markets. As her ideas and techniques developed, so did her business and Laura began creating even more items and accessories. German tire manufacturer, Schwalbe, donated approximately 5000 rejected tires to me saved from a future in landfill, which Laura upcycled.
