Earlier this year, I bought a neat wallet. It’s designed to look like lined paper (one of many designs) but built from a patented type of paper that resists water and tearing.

I bought it because I liked the design, and because the material was very thin. The thickness of the wallet is mostly made up of your bills and cards, rather than the wallet itself.

I should have blogged about this earlier because I kept getting asked whether I folded it myself! The second question that I get invariably asked is its durability. I used it for over half a year until I switched back to a conventional wallet. It didn’t fall apart per se, but the design started fading (I guess my pant pockets are dirty) and it started warping. I think the fallacy is that it is folded together rather than glued (to be flexible for various contents).
