Holstee Recycled Wallets

A vegan-friendly wallet made from Delhi street trash

Keeping your cards and cash secure, vegan-friendly Holstee wallets are made from found materials sourced around the streets of Delhi. The slim Holstee wallets are the brainchild of brothers Mike and Dave Radparvar and friend Fabian Pfortmüller—an entrepreneurial trio who quit their day jobs in favor of providing a product that is better for both people and the planet.

A red trim and black interior embedded with the Holstee motto, "Live Your Dream," unifies the line of one-off wallets, which are otherwise unique thanks to their recycled newsprint fabric.

The wallet is the latest product in a line of recycled goods, which started with the Holstee Tee—a functional shirt with a colorful zippered side pocket. In addition to their own products, the Curated x Holstee collection includes a range of items they believe match their design ethos.

Holstee also partners with the Carbon Fund organization to offset shipping emissions. The wallets sell online in gray, purple or blue tints for $25each, with 10% of sales benefiting the developing world through the micro-lending organization Kiva.
