Celebrity rapper and leader of Wu-Tang Clan Robert Fitzgerald Diggs, commonly referred to as RZA, has added wallets made from banana trees to his vegan fashion house 36 Chambers. 

The limited-edition bifold and passport wallet, both of which retail at $65, are PETA-Approved and described as ‘water-resistant, very durable and biodegradable’.  

36 Chambers do not use any animal leather or animal by-products for ‘ethical reasons and all its products are made in an ‘ethically responsible factory’ in Kosrae, where employees are paid fair living wages. 

‘A new life’

“The Cloud Camo Bifold is made from the fibers of banana trees. These banana trees would otherwise be discarded, but instead, find a new life through these wallets,” the brand’s website reads.

“The wallet is printed with our cloud camo pattern that draws inspiration from Japanese forest spirits, Kodama, and Japan’s bamboo forests.In Japanese mythology kodama are spirits that inhabit trees. In Japan’s bamboo forests some trees can be found with hemp rope tied to them, this is a Shinto practice called shimenawa, trees tied with this rope are sacred and not to be cut down.”

36 Chambers also sells cruelty-free bags, accessories such as hats and cardholders, and t-shirts.
