Upcycled. Ethical. Irish. Awesome. There is not much more we need to add - these pencil cases are just brilliant and we love them!
Handmade with respect for the environment and a passion for a more sustainable world from upcycled wetsuits by talented Irish Designer, Lynn Haughton, these robust pencil cases come with a strong chunky zipper and are ideal to keep all your pens and pencils safe. It is even great for keeping jewellery safe and protected while travelling. The options are endless! The pencil case also has a Neo Connect strap which is a great companion and clips on to the eyelet for a useful additional option for carrying.
10% of this collection goes to Seal Rescue Ireland who do phenomenal work rescuing and rehabilitating seals from around the coast of Ireland.
Please note: As with the nature of upcycling, variations in colour will apply to each final product as each carries character from its adventurous past.
