Spoke Bookmark


This bookmark is a by-product of Drahtesel, a Swiss non-profit workshop that recycles old bicycles and refurbishes them for export to Africa, where bicycles are scarce but badly needed as a form of basic transportation. Recycled bicycle spokes are used to create this design based on the essential features of the classical paper clip. What makes it special apart from its design is the fact that it is not machine made but produced by manual precision workmanship. The bookmark doubles as a money clip.
