Amarildo Silva is a young Brazilian craftsman who one day dedicated to do something radical using two things that he always loved: helping animals and crafts. Amarildo strongly believed that this project will contribute to a more sustainable world.
This all started two years ago when Amarildo was looking for a way to make extra income using the trash that people throw in the streets. He always enjoyed making handcrafts with materials that were no longer used and would be otherwise discarded.
Amarildo realized that old tires were being used as a refuge by the dogs that live in the streets and came up with the idea to bring them the feeling of home and make it more comfortable for animals.
The artist collects the old tires that he finds on the streets, takes them home and puts all the stuff in his backyard. He dedicated one of his rooms for storing these tires.
After separating the tires, he cuts, washes and paints them. He loves to draw a unique design for each tire and write the name of the animal to which the bed will belong to.
