Sustainability and the environment



Turin, Italy

General Description of the project

Cingomma creates clothing and accessories from tyres. Every year, 380,000 tons of tyres are destined for disposal and that’s just in Italy. Cingomma does not want to live in a world covered by a black waste tip, so it has chosen to recycle this material, subjecting it to advanced cleaning treatments and transforming it into highly desirable clothing accessories like bags, wallets and belts.

Cingomma has chosen to focus on local artisans, without outsourcing production.
