It’s a bit of sheer brilliance from Passkey Design (that’s Yumiko Ohashi and Masanori Haneda), a Tokyo firm with a focus on cool products that won’t be tossed away after a single use.

We’d like to propose a sustainable products which can be used for a long time with the attachment. For example, the Animal Rubber Band is made of the silicone material very carefully, and it is a little deterioration in comparison with the natural rubber. and it thinks that it can have it use long.
Pick a pack of Zoo or Pet animals designs in happy bright elastic colours, and you’ll never have to play with paperclips again.
