Here at Inhabitat, we never tire of finding new chic products that reclaim everyday industrial materials. Some of our favorite finds are industrial or utilitarian objects that, with some brilliant creativity, have been repurposed into gorgeous goods for the home. Our latest trash-to-treasure discovery are these beautiful seatbelt cushions. Hand crafted in Europe by sustainable design company TING London , these cute and colorful pillows are made from reclaimed seat belts!
Deceptively simple, yet incredibly durable, these distinctive accessories are available in a whole range of colors, styles and sizes. These products are all available to buy through the TING London website and are also stocked in outlets across Japan, Europe, UK and USA.
Founded by Royal College of Art graduate Inghua Ting in 2000, TING London  is a small company producing luxury luggage, belts, wallets and home accessories, all made from reclaimed leather and seat belts. TING’s already small carbon footprint, is offset with the help of growaforest.com  who plant trees to counterbalance their CO2 emissions.
