We stumbled upon an extremely unconventional, original and practical interior-design project by TING ( Inghua Ting). They’ve found a creative way to reuse old leather belts, turning them into bespoke flooring, rugs and interior accents including walls, stairs and doors. The vintage and reclaimed belts used for each creation ensure that no two pieces are ever the same.
The one who layed the foundation of TING in the year of 2000 is Inghua Ting, an exceptional graduate of the Royal College of Art. Inghua worked in Japan developing innovative, futuristic fabrics. However, working at the forefront of fabric technology led her to considering sustainable issues, and the challenge of designing and producing a desirable, luxury product from reclaimed materials. Inspired by seat belts, old leather belts, vintage leather saddles and a range of salvaged fabrics, Inghua cleverly incorporates these materials into new designs to show them off to their best advantage.

Her project started to spread very rapidly due to its level of authenticity and luxury.

All TING products are produced locally wherever possible and hand made by a team of skilled workers in Europe and Los Angeles. If you are interested in visiting their website, make sure to check all the collections and pick at least one…if you have the financial resources. Enjoy!
