Unique Flooring Made with Vintage Leather Belts

If you’re looking for something that’s more original than wood or carpet flooring, well, Inghua Ting has it. Her company is called Ting, and it reuses vintage and reclaimed leather belts and turns them into a unique home decor treatment. They reside on floors, are fashioned into rugs, and are even featured as interior accents for walls, stairs, and doors. Better yet, using these specially-collected belts means that no two pieces are ever the same.

Each belt is hand-selected and then stripped of its metals, hand cleaned, and prepared for processing. The tile or panels are created in-house to keep a consistent high quality and ensure that every piece has the correct pattern and color balance. This careful attention to detail results in a beautiful, glossy, and hard-wearing surface that’s available for purchase by the square foot.
