Once upon a time, Frankie Myers was getting a tire repaired and noticed a pile of unhappy innertubes.
"What happens to those innertubes?" she inquired of the friendly tire repair man.
"Landfill" he replied.
Then and there, Alien Menace was born.
Instead of remaining a pile of unhappy inner tubes with a decidedly gloomy future at the landfill, Frankie took them home and told them there were better days ahead. Through trial and error, mostly error at first, she created methods for transforming the lives of inner tubes into meaningful and proud members of the fashion community. Since then, thousands of grateful inner tubes have been rescued from tragic after-lives, and re-purposed, up-cycled you might say, into fashion accessories of all kinds. Purses were the first items to come to the rescue of the forlorn inner tubes. Earrings, bracelets, wallets and most recently notebooks followed.
