    I got one of these for Christmas, and it is nicely-made and remarkably pleasing:

    It even came with a handwritten-note personally addressed to me!

    Madame IWRATS has been known to knit shredded inner tubes. Technique not perfected yet, only a matter of time though.

    I have a friend here in Edinburgh that's in the process of setting up a business making, amongst other things, earrings with inner tubes. She doesn't appear to have an online presence that I can find though. Last time we spoke she was maybe going to get some stock into the Bike Smith at Haymarket.

    @iwrats Would you be in need of any dead inner tubes? Cleaning out my loft and found a fair few...

    Madame will be most grateful. If you leave them in your garden and PM me your address I'll scoop them up?

    If Madame IWRATS has sufficient inner tubes there might be another place to send them to:

    "We're appealing for old inner tubes to help end poverty in Malawi. If you can post them to us, we will ship them to Malawi along with lots of bikes. Tailors will earn a fair living turning the tubes into wallets etc. That's got to be better than putting them in the bin!"

    No idea of the background or anything more about the scheme but might be worth investigating

    Cycle of Good is an offshoot of the Krizevac Project, which is notable for bringing us the Elephant Bike.

    My sister gave Mr fimm a nice little "purse for cyclists" - designed to hold a card, a note or two and some change and fit into a jersey pocket - made from a repurposed inner tube, for his Christmas. I'll have to look and see where it came from.
