El Canut

Piggy bank inspired by the Valencian saying “Salut i força al canut”.

Originally, the word “canut” referred to a small leather bag to keep the coins. Formerly, the Valencian farmers kept the money in a kind of “canut” fastened to the belt, made from a river cane lined with leather. Thus, this saying was used when making a toast to wish those present “health and economic well-being”.

It is a product that combines design and local crafts to rethink the concept of a new souvenir and provide it with added value.

Project developed in collaboration with Per Amor a l’Art.
