Made from cement paper, like all of our other great products: Fused for strength and coated (with an environmentally friendly treatment) to be water resistant.
What we did differently here is we used a single layer of paper and fabric. This keeps it super slim.
With time, the wallet takes on it’s own personality. If the Slim Wallet lives in the back pocket of your jeans it will take on some of the denim dye. It takes on it’s own beautiful character and durability is in no way compromised.
Features: This wallet is made from a single piece of paper that is folded. We call it Origami Reimagined! There are 4 pockets and you can choose which one you want to use for notes, cards or train passes. Up to 12 cards fit in the wallet and even then it is only 15mm thick.
So what’s with the dots and squares? Have you ever played the game “connect the dots”? It is a game played by two people to pass the time. You start with a sheet of paper filled with dots spaced equally and you move by connecting two dots with a line. When you place the last “wall” of a single square, the box is yours and the player with the most boxes at the end of the game is the winner.
This hand drawn game was translated into a design by scanning the game being played at various stages, as played by two design students waiting for class, over several days.
It has significance because it also links to the concept that life is about connecting experiences. And that it is through connections that one is creative.
