An animate vintage leather kangaroo; with her pouch as a place to safely store magazines, by Spanish design firm, Valenti 1, circa 1970.
A later version of this leather Kangaroo was developed by Omersa & Co., inspired by Valenti’s vintage piece. Omersa modernized the use for the pouch, suggesting it as a holder for a TV remote control, ensuring it would ‘never be lost again!’
