This Elephant Wallet features a divided section for bills and a long zippered interior pocket for coins. The wallet closes with a sturdy magnetic snap under the flap. Due to the nature of recycled materials, each wallet shows a varying degree of wear. The distressed finish is not a flaw, but part of the unique character of the item. Pair it with our Elephant Metro Bag.

VillageWorks

Cambodia

VillageWorks was started to create employment and provide skills and livelihoods to women and young people in a small village in the Baray District of Kampong Thom Province in Cambodia in 2001. Villageworks has a history of working with artisans as whole persons and addressing the complex challenges this recovering nation faces. The name VillageWorks expresses their focus on handicrafts produced in villages using indigenous materials, native implements, and simple craftsmanship. It also expresses their intent to teach artisans the value and meaning of work. About 80% of the artisans suffer from the effects of childhood polio, and are all full-time, salaried workers. Partners for Just Trade began working with VillageWorks in 2013.
