Upcycled, collectible, toys, 100% handmade with a purpose: give discarded tires a creative and functional second life. Each dinosaur is made eloquently by hand, no machines, with the non-toxic inner tube of a discarded tire. After thorough and repeated cleaning of the selected parts, the dinosaur is designed, drawn, cut and hand stitched using self-rubber.
A Love Story of Giving
In 2020, in the midst of covid-19 pandemic, we started reaching out to fellow creatives in Bali who share our values for social, ethical and environmental responsibility. We wanted collaboration work as our way to help one another during these challenging times.
Upcycled dinosaurs is Love Stories Bali x Artcycle Bali collaboration. The idea came from our mutual love for children, craftsmanship and the earth. Pat, the artist, artisan, and founder of Artcycle Bali, is passionate about showing the world that repurposed tires can be beautiful and useful. From collecting tires in landfills and the streets, to exhaustive cleaning, drawing, cutting, and hand stitching, Pat does it all with sheer joy and love for the earth.
