Wallet made of high-quality sheet of leather that is folded like an “origami”
Carry Japan’s “hospitality” with youThis new type of wallet is simple yet innovative and is luxuriously made of one piece of high-quality leather that is folded, without being sewn and held together with one nut and bolt. This excellent product combines the amazing traditions of Japan with a modern sensibility. “Fukusa” (for information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fukusa), a Japanese courtesy of gift wrapping, is the inspiration behind this wallet. The bills fit nicely, the coin is easy-to-use and it also has plenty of card slots with covers. When you open up your wallet, the inside cannot be seen and will leave a smart and chic impression. The real Japanese leather used for this wallet is made of a method that takes about 5 times more time than usual. Compared to normal leather, this leather is able to “breathe” which helps avoid mold, the cause of aging in leather.
