Her words on her process and product....
A great little coin purse with many of the same qualities as a leather coin purse, but better! Bike tube rubber is strong, durable, flexible, and relatively water-resistant. Unlike leather it is cruelty-free and easy to clean and care for. Use this tiny pouch as a coin purse, minimalist/hiker wallet, or a tiny items catch-all. Also great for business cards! And I bet your teensy rock collection might need a new home.
A NOTE: All the bike tubes I use are rescued from old tube piles at bike shops in Moab, Utah. I cut them up in my backyard, wash them in my bathtub, and dry 'em on the line. When cleaned, bike tube rubber has a surprising, supple feel, and like leather, it is durable, flexible and strong. Unlike leather, it is easy to clean and care for. There is a slight rubber smell, but you really have to put your nose up to it to notice. All bike tubes have white factory markings and a few have patches added by their previous owners; so each bag or wallet comes with its own secret story for you to ponder over!
