Inner tube is sourced from a variety of tyre garages and motorcycle fix shops in and around Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand. It is attractive as a material because of its durability and aesthetic appeal. This makes it suitable as a substitutable material for otherwise traditional leather and vinyl products such as bags and accessories.The added weight and toughness of truck inner tube makes it challenging to work with, but once cleaned and cut it can be fashioned into an attractive and unique looking product. While uniformly black in color, each inner tube is different, with markings varying in terms of the pattern on the tube and some with the manufacturer's brand and/or serial number. In this way no one product is identical to another, and while design and dimensions are consistent, the individualist can be content in knowing that his or her product is a one of a kind.
