Designed by Blindesign, a Portuguese collective that understands design as a tool capable of social innovation, this crumpled silver wallet is made from recycled milk cartons. The milk cartons are either collected from various organizations or given to the designers, who work together with handicapped people that clean the material as part of their rehabilitation. The useful material is then sent to a woman’s prison where it is stitched into a variety of products like this cool wallet.
