Details

This is part of an ongoing series and has become a signature for Handsome Co..  First conceived of in 2009 by Billy Potts while wandering around garages in Tai Hang, these wallets are made from the ubiquitous vinyl upholstery found in most Hong Kong taxis. 

 

This is an exercise in elegant minimal design with sustainability in mind.  The material’s origin is subtly referenced in the red colour scheme of interiors and stitching- a nod to the distinctive red livery of Hong Kong taxis.  These products are still made in Hong Kong in collaboration with the same family run upholstery shop.  

 

Many of the craftspeople that Handsome Co. employs to manufacture these watches tend to be women who have lost employment opportunities due to factory outsourcing to mainland China. Handsome Co. gives these people an opportunity to utilize their skills in a fair work environment.
