‘‘ Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value’'

MI-WALLET was born back in 2011, a design created by industrial designer Domingo Morchio founder of Morchio Ideas PTY LTD a product design and advisor company based in Sydney, Australia. 

The idea was to create a product to teach people about upcycling and sustainable design. The concept is to show how we can create excellent design and products reusing existing materials.

Each unique origami wallet is made of a single folded sheet of newspaper, carefully selected for the image on the front, and laminated for strength. The whole process is hand-made using recycled paper.


Why origami wallet?

As you may know, origami is a folding technique, where a figure is created by folding one single sheet of paper. The wallet uses the same technique to increase strength through the folding process. The result is pretty amazing, they are durable as leather or fabric and 100% water-resistant.
