Leather floors the height of recycled luxury

Leather floors the height of recycled luxury

Some people collect shoes, others, bags. London-based designer Inghua Ting's thing is belts.

Ting reworks old leather men's belts into bespoke square floor tiles, resulting in a "beautiful, glossy and hardwearing" surface.

Available by the square foot, the material is also suitable for table and bar tops, walls and feature areas.

Each vintage belt is hand-selected, then stripped of metals and cleaned before use. They're pretty labour-intensive, so should you decide to discard your tiles further down the track, Ting's people can even recycle them into an entirely new product.
