The Origami Wallet History
As we like all things vintage, but with a modern twist, we redesigned a vintage origami wallet design. The concept comes from WWII when traditional manufacturing was redirected for the war efforts. As a result, stitching leather goods was not a priority and the means to do so were not available, so many people would make wallets out of folded leather and sell them to allied forces personnel to earn some extra money for their family. We even had a customer tell us how his grandfather did exactly this, and how he gave him one as a child, for which it is ever remembered. Generally they weren’t the most attractive wallets as they were quite bulky and crudely cut, but that doesn’t matter, they were full of soul and character and seemingly lasted for years upon years. We tried to preserve the origami folded design whilst giving it a modern twist.

Store leather away from direct sunlight to prevent the colour fading and you may want to feed the leather from time to time with a little clear leather wax. Leather is a natural material so you may find the surface shows some minor variations in colour or even the occasional small imperfection.
