This case is made from old truck tire tubes and pool-table felt. I can almost smell the testosterone
Regular readers will know that I’m a sucker for bags and cases of all kinds (the Lady has implemented a one-in-one-out policy at home, meaning I have to dispose of an old bag before buying a new one). I’m also a fan of recycling things, especially inner-tubes. Even so, Karen Booker’s iPhone and iPod Touch sleeve goes one better.
This super-tough and slick-looking sleeve is sewn from old rubber truck tubes, but the coolest part is the lining, made from green baize reclaimed from pool tables.
I have a man-purse (or murse. Or as we say over in Europe, a “bag”) made from old truck tubes and it is tough as boots and ages like leather. So If I wasn’t the kind to go commando with my phone, I’d likely pick up this case. And what in the world could be more manly than truck tires and pool?
Booker’s sleeves cost $22, and are available now from her Etsy store, along with a bunch of other recycled bags and cases.
