No Smoking! Moquette Purse/Wallet
This very special genuine train upholstery, or 'moquette', makes an excellent functional wallet, big enough to fit an iphone, and is very tactile and has a lovely velvety feel.
Genuine vintage moquette that was first seen on the British Rail Modernisation Plan in the 1960s.
The cool green stripes were used in the non-smoking compartments, the red stripes used in the smoking areas (which didn't show up the nicotine staining!)
The purse/wallet is completely handmade and a one of a kind; own something locally made in Sydney or it can be great to give as a gift. Backed with a soft repurposed black leather, and lined with a City of Sydney banner material, it is made to last.
My moquette has been so popular with the guys, I've made these wallets also with blokes in mind.
Own a piece of transport history!
Adorned with a metal zipper.
Size: 20cm x 13.5 cm
