Don’t Leave Home Without It

Origami artist Sok Song has created the ultimate way to carry the oddly shaped NY City Subway map. As part of his Green Folding Project in which he re-uses various everyday paper products he has created the “Subway Map Wallet”.

This is not only a thin, lightweight and a comfortable way to carry the map it’s also laminated making it water and tear proof. A true origami wallet made from one sheet of folded paper it can be opened for subway reference and refolded to hold your goods. Its deep enough to hold $, ¥, £ or €.

The wallet also has a folded in tab that allows you to slip your cards in so they won’t fall out.

We invite you to join us at Leffot on Thursday February 12th for a book signing event of the new book by Robin Joy called “The Heartleys”. Robin and her co-author Sherry Rousso will be signing the books between 2-6p.m. This is a nice Valentines Day gift.

In addition Origami artist Sok Song will be there offering origami lessons.

A portion of the proceeds of the sale of each book will be donated to the organization God’s Love We Deliver, which provides meals to home bound patients.

We hope you can attend for a good cause, a beautiful book, and some fun origami folding.

Our New Art Installation

Leffot is proud to offer what we consider to be a fine assortment of footwear and accessories but we are equally interested in presenting art for the enjoyment of those in New York and beyond.

Our newest art installation is looking absolutely incredible. A collaboration between artist Robin Joy and origami artist Sok Song is a very unique and special installation. Robin Joy is a graphic designer, and fine artist who creates intensely intricate and complicated pencil graphics that she transfers to among other things wallpaper, which she is installing in our gallery.

Sok, who has created the Holiday Tree for the Museum of Natural History in New York is creating an entire origami tree using paper printed with Robin’s graphics. The tree will have origami hands as branches. It’s difficult and complicated work and very hard to convey what an incredible impact the installation is having on our gallery space.  It’s really much more amazing than I can explain and needs to be seen in person to appreciate the beauty and creativity that has been put into this exhibit.

The opening event will be hosted on February 5th from 7-9 p.m. by fashion icon and man about town Patrick McDonald. I highly recommend that you attend not just because it will be a great event, but for the incredible impact of the art itself. The exhibit will be in place until March, we invite you to come by to see a most fascinating and unique display of combined art forms.
