This piece uniquely captures a life cycle and demonstrates Earth's critical role. The leather that the wallet is made out of is Natural Vegetable (Veg)Tan. Veg Tan Leather uses tannins from tree bark to assist the tanning process. The leather used here is free of chemicals and artificial dyes therefore maintaining its natural skin tone and purity. Grass grows, cattle feed, meat is harvested and hides are used for products. Products that not only last a lifetime but also serve as a token of gratitude to the animal and Earth that provided its livelihood.
The thread, in its color, reinforces the importance of Earth's role, therefore, strengthening the theme of greenspace.

Pillow Lamp is the latest project from experimental designers Thing Thing. Fabricated by the artists in their Detroit studio, it is the result of a long exploration into the industrial process of rotational molding. Made from HDPE plastic formed in handmade aluminum molds, each lamp has a unique pattern of wrinkles and creases. The lamp's kickstand is a copper pipe that has been reclaimed from a local scrapyard and polished by hand to a bright sheen. An LED bulb allows the lamp to stay lit for over 25,000 hours. Pillow Lamp is a beautiful addition to any bedside table, desk, or dark corner and shines with a warm, mysterious glow.
