Where there’s muck…..

index….there’s brass ….er…coppers.

Coolest idea going.

Take

  • Police uniforms (otherwise destined for the shredder)
  • A designer from one of Germany’s leading outdoor sporting wear companies
  • A sheltered workshop

and you’ve got a product that’s flying off the shelves.

Prices range from €22 to €33 (for the bag on the right, made from a police motorcyclist’s jacket)

Which is WAAAAY too cheap – the waiting list started off at 2 months and grew exponentially the more global it became.

And of course , it’s all too much for the civil servants in Mainz who have to manage it – one was heard to say “If we’d only shredded the bloody things…”

Cuts into his nose-picking time, I guess….
