Inspired by origami folding which looks at careful and clever construction, this wallet is made from reclaimed packaging paper that has been screen-printed, fused for strength and coated (with an environmentally friendly treatment) to be water resistant.
With time and use, the wallet takes on it’s own personality; it softens and the print distresses revealing some of the virgin white paper, but durability is in no way compromised.
Features: Held together with precise folds and stitch, the Square Wallet has 4 card pockets – each that can hold multiple cards, a centre bill fold and a hidden coin compartment. This coin compartment fits flush between the back and the middle layer of the wallet and is our favourite feature making this wallet truly unique.
All sections are held tight by a central magnet that closes each side with a satisfying snap!
More about this range:
The Promenade in Sea Point is one of designer Heather Moore’s a favourite places in Cape Town, because there is just so much to see. Waves & surfers, paragliders & windblown trees, pram pushers & wheelchairs, dogs & joggers all make up a passing parade that’s one of the enduring pleasures of Cape Town life, & one that’s free for all to enjoy.
Alongside the passing parade, the Promenade has a wealth of midcentury architecture, which adds a particular charm to the stretch of Beach Road from Mouille Point to Three Anchor Bay.
After years of walking, driving, cycling (and once even rollerblading) past the mosaic wall of the public bathrooms on Beach Road, Skinny laMinx designer Heather Moore stopped to sketch the design, and realised that it was the first time she’d looked at it properly.
The result of taking the time to slow down and look closely at this unnamed piece of midcentury public art is the PROMENADE collaboration with The Wren Design.
This new collection of the Wren’s signature paper laptop sleeves, bags and wallets are screenprinted with two designs – MEANDER and PROMENADE – in playful colours that express the freewheeling joy of an aimless summer stroll along the Sea Point Promenade.
“Take a Story With You” is the Wren’s slogan, and the story of the PROMENADE collaboration with Skinny laMinx is reminder to slow down and take note of the everyday beauty available for all to see.
