The Typical Local Souvenir company was founded in 2006 in Tel-Aviv. TLS develops and produces objects based first and foremost on their cultural interest and their contribution to the world of consumer goods. The workshop aims to achieve the highest possible quality of production within a small local setting, using only small Israeli producers to supplement the workshops line.
The bank collection focuses on the monuments of the capitalist age - the headquarters of commercial and federal banks. Like heroic statues of victorious dictators, the bank buildings are a testament to the potency and unrivaled hegemony of money. The collection highlights banks in the United States, Germany and Japan, but also sites that are less obviously capitalist such as Saudi Arabia and China.
