There’s so much to love about these recycled bicycle bookends from Traidcraft. They are made from old bike chains and given a burnished copper finish. Not only do they look good, they are practical as well!
They are heavy enough to keep your books from slipping and carefully padded to protect your surfaces from damage. They are just what you need to organise your books and tidy your shelves.They form part of a range of recycled metal homeware that also includes bowls and boxes made from old metal keys.
