Houses Made from Whisky Vats

Whisky has been responsible for plenty of questionable decisions over the years, but turning the vats it ages in into building materials seems like a great idea. Originally conceived of for the Findhorn Ecovillage in Scotland by an American, Roger Douda, with four decades of connections to the site, there are multiple permanent buildings built out of repurposed barrels collected from the Haig distillery in Fife. What started as an exercise in creative recycling evolved into full homes when the plan to build a school or community center extension was shot down by people in the community. The final products are all houses that are properly designed and legitimately good looking that just so happen to be made with proper whisky barrel materials.

The Ridge is a modern, slim, front pocket wallet, made to declutter the modern lifestyle. The main compartment is an expandable card holder, for any and all forms of plastic payment and identification. Attached to that is your choice of a money clip or cash strap for when old fashioned paper money is your best option. Being on the smaller, compact side means the Ridge doesn’t encourage the typical flotsam and jetsam acquisition of the traditional leather bi-fold, with its faded receipts and unnecessary cards. The Ridge re-evaluates your everyday carry and gets rid of the bulk.
