Disused materials including tyres, burlap sacks and rope are recycled into footwear for the developing world in this project by Ravensbourne university students
Soled is a project by product design students Jena Kitley, Alani Fadzil and Lauren Joseph, who worked together to come up with a solution for an issue they identified in the developing world.
"Rwanda has an abundance of tyres, a durable, flexible, waterproof material, which was suitable to be used for the sole of the shoe," said Kitley. "Burlap sacks – used to import and export their produce – and hemp rope were other accessible materials that would be used to complete the footwear."
