Welcome to the BicycleTrash maker page! My name is Topaz M. Terry, and I have been making fun and functional accessories from used bicycle parts since 2015. I collect the parts that come off of bicycles with regular use – your popped inner tubes, old bike chains and gears, etc. – from repair shops local to me. Then I clean and reimagine those materials as belts, toiletry bags, bottle openers, wallets, earrings and the like, as well as holiday ornaments.I have kept thousands of inner tubes and hundreds of pounds of stainless steel metals out of landfills.
ABOUT MY PRODUCTS:
Many people mistake my products for leather goods. That is how luxurious the material becomes with a little love! Each tube, gear and chain is cleaned by hand using environmentally responsible methods. Bags are constructed from inner tubes that have been hand pieced and machine stitched together, to make a “fabric.” In recent years I have started incorporating billboard material into my work, making for some colorful surprises inside. Easy to clean, sustainably made, and designed with simple clean lines to last (almost) forever. Thanks for checking me out!
