Tope Wallet

Silk screened by hand and dubbed "pocket art", this "Version 3" wallet is made from an eco-friendly synthetic fabric called tope that doesn't use PVCs, yet is similar in texture to a vinyl canvas. Made from non-toxic raw materials, it decomposes in landfills. Like fine art prints, each wallet is numbered and limited copies are produced. Vegan and animal free.

Natural Earth Plasters

Similar to the Tierrafino clay paint I mentioned a while ago, this clay wall finish is a non-toxic, environmentally friendly option to regular old wall materials like gypsum, lime plasters, and concrete. It's not a paint however, it's an actual wall plaster and there are several variations including Marittimo (shown here) that's made with crushed shell aggregate and derives its inspiration from the Mediterranean villages of Morocco. Beautiful.
