For the pattern afficionados

Tell me these aren’t cool ?

Found by design duo, Aaron & Carla Osborn (Husband & Wife), Osborn is parent to an amazing array of individually hand cut and assembled oxfords, booties and slip-ons. Their products are manufactured in Guatemala (I did a research on the people of Guatemala for my 2nd year project, and I fell in love with the colors and the rich tradition rooted in them) by skilled artisans from the region. The Tyres of Guatemala are given a new lease in life, as they are recycled into the soles of these shoes.

Pretty neat no? Would love to spot this on someone.
