School of Fish, L’Herbe Rouge

• A School of Fish.  FIKAY makes these cool, bold wallets from recycled cement and food sacks. They are constructed ethically and every purchase results in a donation of educational resources to underprivileged children in Asia. They measure this in bricks because they are currently helping build a school that’s nearly finished.

L’HERBE ROUGE, a sustainable fashion line from Paris, offers these bold red chinos in organic cotton, and a classic black polo and khaki shorts in Tencel – a cellulose-based fabric made through an organic solvent spinning process.
