BUCKIT

 

With a strong interest in both fashion and design, Adelaide-based former architect Craig has always enjoyed creating things by hand, so the inception of BUCK!T was a natural progression.

.

BUCK!T belts and accessories are handmade at Craig’s studio in Adelaide from upcycled bicycle tyres of all colours and textures. Some have even come from pro-teams riding in the Tour Down Under and World Tour races.

.

As well as tyre-donations from cyclists, Craig has a network of bike shops across Adelaide that supply him with used tyres and tubulars, which he then scrubs and re-works.

.

“These handmade, up-cycled and unique accessories are an expression of my personality and my commitment to live a small-footprint lifestyle”. Craig takes pride in producing something that is individual and cannot be mass produced.

.

Bicycle tyres go to landfill as recycling them is too difficult due to their high content of fabric & kevlar, with a relatively small proportion of rubber; so all of these products save tyres from the tip! Since the inception of BUCK!T in 2012, the range has expanded to include wristbands, watches, watch-straps and wallets.
