Deep Pockets

Great things come in small packages. Case in point: this funky micro-wallet has two slots for your credit cards, a central pocket for cash, and a slide-out slot for your ID or transit pass. Not only that, it also makes room to support health care, education and fair wage employment for impoverished craftspeople in India. The card cases' colorful appearance is created with discarded plastic bags and newspapers, which are collected from the streets of Delhi and washed using natural soaps and disinfectants. The bags are then heat fused together to form the wallet material, and then cut out and sewn into shape. Wallet comes in blue and rainbow. Sold separately. Each is one-of-a-kind and will vary slightly. Handmade in India.
