Review: Felvarrom Recycled Innertube Belts (And Win It!)

A few weeks ago, I received a ‘Punctered’ inner tube belt (in a cute little inner tube bag) from Budapest upcycled/recycled cycling apparel manufacturer Felvarrom. Naturally, I had some interest to see how this eco-fashion accessory made from an old innertube could be the partner of our everyday pants :)

They describe the product like this:

On a gloomy Monday morning in November (of course) the Felvarrom expert-SWAT team met to concoct what you can create from inner tubes besides the catapult and substitution for elastic ropes for farm-bikes. Most of the great ideas regarded to assault, the rest were pointless, so they were discarded, but eventually one proved to be useful. The result can be seen here.

Felvarrom collects worn out bicycle parts from local shops in Budapest and upcycle them into eco-products. In their website, you could find a wide range of accessories made from recycled bike parts such as belts and bracelets made from upcycled tires and innertubes. They also made some cool key holders from recycled bike chains, robots and trophies from various bike parts that are real pieces of Art. And many more products for the rider inside you :)

We received the torquose-dark brown belt; we must say that the quality is superb. The belt has two fixing patch on its length, and it gives a little ‘unique feeling’ to each belt. They state that all their inner tube belts are made from carefully selected, high-quality, recycled/upcycled bicycle inner tubes, and we confirm the quality of the material. Nylon linen tapes have been stitched into each edge to give a bit of extra resilience and colors to the belt, there’s a lot of different colors to choose from into their website, you should find your taste.

I could not test the ‘extremely durability’ of this tube belts, but I confirm that the belt is soft, doesn’t stretch at all, is very comfortable to wear and doesn’t stain my pants!

The buckle is made from nickeled steel and is adjustable, not need holes, and doesn’t hurt the surface of the inner tube or the strips.
In conclusion, this isn't my first innertube belt has I had one that I wore several years, but the design of the Felvarrom belt is nicer and a lot more colorful. If we could see more eco-products with such quality and 'sexy design,' I’ll bet that it could help a lot to develop the recycling!
