Reducing waste by reusing beverage cartons, Swiss-born Tanja Burgdorfer’s “Recycled Magic Wallets [2]” creatively makes use of what would normally be discarded. With a little bit of elastic and a few staples, Tanja turns old beverage cartons into contemporary and useful wallets for the environmentally-conscious consumer. Current selection in her etsy shop [3] shows luscious fruit prints. Each wallet is entirely hand-crafted and is available ready-made or bespoke upon request.

Tanja works under her new brand name “Mayari [4]” and is currently living and working in London. Her aim in creating the wallet was to use design to introduce a unique and interesting product that treats waste in a responsible way.
