Tubewhips & Leather Stockwhips
WELCOME to Tube Whips where recycling inner tubes is our priority in a bid to preserve our environment. That's right.... at Tube Whips we make stock whips from damaged inner-tubes of car and truck tires, recycling the tubes into something useful instead of these going to landfill.
Do your part for the environment and use a tube whip that can be used in the rain without causing damage to your whip, unlike a leather whip which does not take kindly to wet weather. Tube whips are long lasting and are elegantly finished with choices of different length whips made with Australian hardwood handles or cane handles plaited with tube rubber.
Our inner tube whips are just one way of implementing the 3 R's... Reduce, Re-use, Recycle. By using an inner tube whip, you too can help reduce the amount of waste that is sent to landfill and be a part of today's recycling necessity.
Instead of all this going to landfill
now only some goes to landfill
The original design and idea of Nathan's famous tube whips are not only Australian made but proudly represented as being made from recycled materials. Old inner tubes from cars, trucks and even tractors are used. Bailing twine, which has been used once by farmers, is also recycled and used as crackers. The belly of the tube whip also consists of some recycled materials and local hardwood timber is collected from private property to make some of the handles... LEARN MORE
Tubes are cut to size using scissors and the
strand cutter is used to cut the strands for the plaited handle.
Strands are sized with a sharp knife ready to plait the whip.
At Tube Whips we also make high quality well priced leather stock whips to order, these whips are made from (A grade) kangaroo skins, these come in a variety of colours and styles. We also make high quality latigo cow hide whips as a budget leather whip. I used to make red hide and white hide whips but found that they don't last as long as the latigo.
Please view our products page to order the whip of your choice. Don't forget that a tube whip is a great work horse for stock work and just right for those who can't be bothered dressing a leather whip, they last a long time and are hard wearing. Like any whip you don't use them on hard surfaces like brick, gravel, bitumen, and concrete roadways. It is better to use any whip on grassed areas and for indoors use carpeted areas if possible. When performing I like to use a small 3m x 3m outdoor carpet to keep my whips in top condition.
