Design with a purpose

Five Accessories known for their handbags and accessories line recently launched a picture frame made out of recycled transit card and ticket stubs. The frame is part of the Off The Street line to assist men and women who have lived in poverty.
The handmade frames were constructed by Glenn Hughes and Roarke Moody using eco-friendly pine wood and can be manipulated to incorporate your company's logo. 

Five Accessories tends to work with those who were homeless at least three times a week in conjunction with  the Chicago based organisation aptly named Streetwise. The Off The Street line consists of bracelets, belts and pins all using discarded transit cards, bottle caps and ticket stubs from sporting events. From the proceeds 15% is donated to the Streetwise organisation.
