Recycled Belt Giveaway

Thursday, May 1, 2014

A parcel arrived in the mail this week containing a mustard yellow belt. This belt is no ordinary accessory, it is made with a very unusual recycled material.

This funky yet sturdy recycled yellow belt has heavy gauge stitching and a 2 pronged buckle in gun metal, with matching eyelets.

I have an interesting and fun giveaway competition for you - if you can guess the material of which this belt has been made, you will be in for a chance to win one for yourself, with a second belt to be given away to one Recycled Fashion reader. If more than one person guesses the correct material, a winner will be picked randomly.

To avoid revealing your answer below, please email me with your guess, and comment below saying you have entered.

Here are a few clues:

* The belt is from London.
* The belt's material has a distinctive smell, although not unpleasant.
* The belt can been purchased from a new UK based eco-driven online accessory retailer, selling pieces made with innovative sustainable materials.

The belt's material and where it can be purchased will be revealed next week once the competition closes on Friday 9th May.

I look forward to hearing your answers.

*UPDATE  14 May 2014 *

The competition is now closed, out of 35 guesses over various social media outlets, 19 of you guessed right (how did you know? I thought it would be difficult!). The correct answer is.. a London Fire Brigade's yellow hose. Made by Elvis and Kresse, this unique belt is sold via London based ethical accessory website Kitty DoLittle. My son picked a name out of a hat, and the winner is Candy Culnane. Congrats Candy, Kitty DoLittle will ship out your belt.
