No I didn’t spell it incorrectly. This is a chair completely made from rubber tyres.
Saw it on a recent holiday in Lombok Indonesia, outside a pearl shop.
I thought the craft skill alone was good enough to qualify for a post on LJ’s even though it’s not made from wood.

Does it bounce all over the place.

I didn’t see a valve stem though.

Thanks for showing, Tony. that is a cool chair. Imagine the work that went int cutting all the rubber and weaving it. I wonder if they cut it by hand??
Did you notice how they hooked it all together? Screws? Staples? Threaded with wire? It looks like some of it ts wrapped with an inner tube!

Thanks, Jim

Karson, The are solid chairs. I sat on one and it didn’t give & I’m not light. LOL
Jim, I did not have a real close look at how they were locked together but they were solid and heavy.
