These stunning leather animals are from the South American design collaborative Looksur. Each sculpture is made from 100% recycled leather, so they have green credentials as well as style points.
These modern sculptures have multiple uses, since they can be a toy, decoration, napkin holder, conversation piece--even a doorstop.

In a thoroughly competitive global market where products like this can offer them both of these concerns, the best new ideas and products are those which don't take these important considerations lightly.
