Prix-prix necktie wallets

A few years ago I came into possession, despite myself, of a huge collection of ties from the 60′s, 70′s and 80′s, residues of a store that closed, leaving behind years of history and yards of fabric. I never knew what to do with those ties (I was able to sell other vintage items, but anybody needed kitsch ties), but I knew that if I got rid of them I would have regretted, that the idea to re-use was just round the corner, I was just turning the wrong corner. A few days ago I moved to a smaller house, and among the flood of boxes I don’t really know what happened to those ties. Right now that the idea has come. Prix-prix is a San Diego based studio, that creates using recycled materials, and invented the “necktie wallet”, a minimal design wallet, made with the fabric of old ties found around markets or shops. Each piece differ from the others in small details, which is only possible with the use of materials that had a previous life and who proudly wear the signs of it. These funny and ecological wallets are on sale from 34 Dollars. And it doesn’t end here: I know that ties will continue to torment me!
