Old Newspapers Get a Colorful (and Functional) Makeover with Holstee's Recycled Wallets (Photos)

From the makers of the eco-hipster tee comes a recycled wallet made from old plastic bags and newspapers collected from the streets of Delhi. New York-based eco-fashion brand Holstee has partnered with a non-profit in India to help provide employment to those often referred to as 'rag pickers.' Holstee's slim wallets are minimalist in design and safely store your essentials: metro card, credit card, ID, etc. Each wallet has a one-of-a-kind pattern and is made with 90% recycled material.
I visited Holstee's headquarters earlier this year when they were in the process of developing these recycled wallets and "Mum" was the word, until now. More photos:

The recycled wallet is available in grey (bummer: sold out, as of today), purple, and blue; retails for $25 (10%, of which, is donated to Kiva.org); and can be conveniently purchased online at Holstee.
