Gallery: Recycled Magic Wallets by Tanja Burgdorfer


Reducing waste by reusing beverage cartons, Swiss-born Tanja Burgdorfer’s “Recycled Magic Wallets” 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 shows luscious fruit prints. Each wallet is entirely hand-crafted and is available ready-made or bespoke upon request.

    Thank you very much! The concept was very important to me but my aim is also to make it real.

    In other words: To market the Recycled Magic Wallet. I am serching for the best way how to make this product known to the public, so that those who wish to replace their (or their friends) standard leather wallet with a simple, responsible carton wallet can do so. Any suggestions are welcome.

    Cheers, Tanja.
