Tennis ball felt is repurposed for flip-flops and cell phone cases by an American company called Chesters. The items are made of 100% tennis ball felt (from the same manufacturer that Wilson uses) and the fabric’s treated with a non-toxic, silicone based solution that makes it resistant to sweat, grime and water absorption while still maintaining the same feel.
Sit tight: No word yet on when they’ll be for sale, but we’ll let you know as soon as we hear!
