The production process in RESPIRO

1Seeking

We seek and we will never give up! We collect used materials from bike repair stores, printing companies, scrapyards and wineyards and create unique practical eco-friendly products and help eliminate enormous production of disposable packaging material. For our products it’s a rebirth! Help us in our endeavour and send your used banners, worn out Bantex billboards, old car tarps or used bike tubes. Help create new up-cycled products.

2Purifying

Before breathing life into used items we do our best and firstly give them a thorough clean, thereafter we can get down to designing and producing. Daily we process discarded car tarps, bike tubes, vinyl records, wine bottles, tyres a real miscellany of worn out and fading products. It’s exciting to observe the transformation of a useless item into something new, needful and on top of that with a unique design.

3Second chance

Breathing new life to useless items needs enthusiasm and a creative approach. We never regret the time-consuming preparation because each time a remarkable up-cycled original is born that has the gift to enthuse more and more customers not only through its design and handmade quality but also its history and surprising rise from the dead. The whole Respiro team put´s one shoulder to the wheel to create the final Czech product.

The story of our products

What each product went through in its first life is just a prologue to what you will experience with it. For example handmade sewed handbags made from used inner bike tubes that firstly rode up mountain hairpin bends today have new owners that can proudly show off with a unique design and eco-friendly product – a novel life of this fashion accessory. Every single item has its story and past. We give it a new fresh and ecological future with a unique design.
