Since 2005 we have been preparing accessories from second hand materials. Committed to protecting Nature we decided to move towards exclusively environmentally conscious design. Following this decision we started to design fashion accessories from any trash we found fit for bags. So we started the line with second hand vinyl LP-s, then we fell in love with used tarpaulin, which was followed by punctured bicycle inner tubes. Finally we made our line of style from inner tubes: simple & practical with a Balkantango touch. Every product of ours is 100% fair-made in Europe, designed in Switzerland, cut and sewn one by one, partly in a Budapest based workshop and a small manufacture in West-Hungary. While developing a worldwide retailer network, we always find time to have local actions connected to recycling or cycling communities.Anyone wearing our accessories helps us to protect Nature and raises others' environmental awareness.If you're interested in fresh bicycle fetish design news: LIKE our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Balkantango
