A multi-talented Ghanaian artisan, Bernard Nii Nartey, has been creating beautiful furniture and sound systems from used car tyres and other sustainable materials.
Nartey, 35, has become a forerunner in his field because of his unique and viable creations made from used tyres.
His furniture label, Nat Recycle Centre converts used tyres into impressive and sustainable furniture for home and office use.
Nartey holds a Bachelor's Degree in Social Science from the University of Cape Coast (UCC) in the Central region.
Despite having a degree from the prestigious university, the native of Prampram in the Greater Accra Region, redirected his path to become a professional artisan.
Nartey received his secondary education at the Islamic Senior High School in the Upper West Region and later went to UCC to acquire his undergraduate degree.
He proceeded to learn a skill at the Apostle Safo Suaye Technology Institute where he obtained practical knowledge in craftsmanship.
The eight-year programme at the institute reflects on all his creations, including the beautiful furniture and quality sound systems.
YEN.com.gh has sighted amazing photos of his beautiful creation making the rounds on social media. Check out the photos below.
