Embrace T / tire reuse concept

Embrace T
Embrace T

In modern times, used tires remain a constant source of pollution. Embrace T provides a solution for reusing worn-out tires. By using material which is stretchable, flexible, and washable, Embrace T can wrap a tire well enough to serve as an environmentally friendly mini-sofa. Furthermore, its internal hollow structure provides a built-in storage function. And, after placing some items inside it, you can easily move Embrace T, thanks to its intrinsic properties. Need to move your Embrace T? Just roll it!
