Our collaborative wallet with Tchoup Industries is 100% upcycled, vegan, & gives back to Fund 17! Fund 17 empowers everyday, underserved entrepreneurs in all 17 wards of New Orleans.
The six interior pockets are made of tyvek & bicycle inner tubes from Dashing Bicycle's flat fixes. The exterior is made from drops from Tchoup's awesome cotton canvas packs, the canvas is made in the U.S.. This wallet is the local-est!
A surprise is found on the inside, within the Cash pocket - Dream & Hustle.
Made in New Orleans, spot clean, & includes gift box.
Funny story, sharing a shop space with Marin of Dashing Bicycles led to this idea, seeing the pile of inner tubes form, it made we wonder what I could do with them. I mentioned to Marin that I was playing around with some bike tube wallet ideas when I asked if I could save up and re-use the punctured tubes. She saw Patti a couple days later & Patti was also working on bike tube wallet ideas! What are the odds? Marin let us both know & this collaboration was born! Love good friends & working together in our lovely city. Now we use the bike tubes from Dashing Bikes to create our wallets!

**Shipping within the U.S.: We use USPS for regular orders, priority mail takes 2,3 days to land at your doorstep. Larger orders are shipped via FedEx, typically allow 3,4 days for delivery.
**Shipping Internationally: We are happy to ship to you wherever you are in the world! Just select your country from the list and shipped via USPS, estimated 7-10 days for arrival. If shipping via USPS, tracking and insurance are unavailable, so we are not able to guarantee your package. (We haven't had any issues to date, knock on wood.)
**Returns/exchanges - Unfortunately these are not possible due to the hygienic nature of the soaps and body care products. Made to order items are also not possible to return or exchange. For the rest of our items, if items are not damaged, a return or exchange is possible on a case by case basis.
**Glycerin Soap - High quality glycerin soap naturally attracts moisture from the air. If your soap has a little of the protective waxed shipping tissue, just give your Bird or Bar an initial wash, this is completely normal for a handmade soap. The BirdSoaps are carefully wrapped in 100% recycled tissue paper to protect their shape during shipping.
