Everything old is new again… especially when it comes to style. We love when unexpected things are repurposed into something new. And one of the trends we’re digging now is taking seatbelts and turning them into wearable works of fashion.
We discovered a few must-have items from the crafty folks at Harveys. This husband and wife team have been using seatbelts to make funky fashions for men and women for the past 20 years. Here are just a few of the accessories we’ve added to our wish list:
The Bamboo Stella Hobo bag comes in dark brown with bamboo handles that accent the color perfectly. A great summer bag, the Stella is made from durable automotive seatbelts and features a magnetic top closure. You can carry this bag away for $288.
The Spangled Seatbeltstrap Tote is much more than a purse. You can use it to carry your yoga mat, school books and beach wear. This canvas tote is silk-screened with a vintage-Americana red and blue design that proudly states “Built in the USA.” The two top handles are automotive grade red and navy blue seatbelt, and can be comfortably worn in the hand, on the elbow, or up on the shoulder. This tote retails for $38.
If you want a conversation piece for your living room, the Seatbelt Pillow is it. Available in black and gray, the Seatbelt Pillow is tough on the outside, soft on the inside. It will fit into any home décor and adds a touch of coolness to your home. Pick one up for $64.
There are a lot of cute, whimsical designs available at Harveys’ online store – Disney, tropical colors and skulls, just to name a few. Let us know which ones are your favorites (it’s hard to pick just one) in the comments section below.
