Recycling various car parts to make all kinds of products is becoming popular these days. A case in point is the Couch company that takes “vintage” vinyl and cloth seat covers, trunk liners and seatbelt webbing (no leather, please, as the owners are vegans) and turns them into consumer products, including guitar and camera straps, belts, bags and wallets. For example, the wide assortment of guitar straps is derived from retired Mustang, Volkswagens, Cadillac, and Mercedes-Benz models (to name a few) and are priced from $45-$50. Camera straps range from $20-$30, while wallets sell for $20-$34. Couch makes other cool stuff, which can be viewed/purchased at www.couchguitarstraps.com.
