A Martha Rich Wallet

In terms of affordable design, Poketo is always creating new and exciting offerings. Its latest is a wallet collaboration with non-profit lit org 826LA, founded by Dave Eggers with an aim to help kids rev up their creative and expository writing juices.

In a student/artist team effort, 826LA students created short stories, which Poketo's stable of artists then used to line wallets, each illustrated on the exterior with the artist's interpretation of the story. Participating artists include Tim Biskup, Martha Rich, Mark Todd, and Esther Pearl Watson, among others. Each is only $20 with proceeds benefiting 826LA's programming. The effect is pretty darn adorable—check all the wallets here. [RackedWire]
