That's Tope!

dbclay started out by making duct tape wallets, selling them at a street booth in Portland, Oregon, and they have morphed into a whole line of seriously cool-looking wallets with version 3. All the wallets are made from Tope, a material that’s similar to vinyl, but without all the horrible polluting side-effects:

Tope is a synthetic fabric similar (in texture) to a vinyl canvas. However, Tope does not contain certain hazardous chemicals typically found in most vinyl-based products. In particular, Tope contains NO PVC, Tope is non-toxic, Tope is chlorine chemicals free and Tope is fabricated through a pollutant free process. Additionally, we have engineered a tremendously technical printing process whereby we print high resolution and full photographic images using environmentally friendly inks. To top it off, Tope is also vegan and animal free.

I just think they’re absolutely gorgeous!
