In Shigu, a small village at the first bend of the Yangtze river i found these cartire adaptations. In china not much reuse can be found. one of the reasons is a tradidtional adverse against goods that can contain spririts of former users. This makes second hand clothes one of the least found items around.
Apparently cartires do not have this disadvantage. The chinese tradition may be very well the reason why in china so much is beng destroyed and built up on a different spot.
