A new use for old tires. Makers from Noah’s Ark International Exports in India use recycled rubber tires to create a planter for warm weather plants. After buying the tires at a local market, the tires are cut and hand-sewn, and the base attached. After being washed, the outside is painted with a base colour and left to dry. Each planter is then painted by hand to create the floral pattern. Fair trade partner Noah’s Ark has helped makers develop innovative designs, incorporate alternative materials and find new markets for their work.
