WOW, LOOK AT THIS ELEPHANT!





Germany / early 1960s
A German company, Deru made beautifully crafted figures of various animals with an imaginative, origami-like technique of crimping/sewing/riveting a single piece of leather.

I did some looking on ebay and other auction houses and previous auctions ended in the price range of 500-1200Euro!—eeks out of my budget but one of the most perfect objects I've come across.

If interested, go here, i think the elephant is still for sale.

found via Designers go to Heaven originally on Freaky Fauna's tumblr.
