It’s not often that you see something simple but innovative when it comes to the design of wallets. I immediately think of the wallets of Comme des Garçons, who’s simple, zip-up design have become timeless and iconic. But I’d add another to the category now, the wallets of Nothing Fancy.
Created by London based designer Chieh Ting Huang this series of wallets are made of only two materials materials.
Each wallet is created from a single piece of leather, requiring no stitching — shortening the time it takes to produce each one and saving on materials. The custom-made rubber bands make placing banknotes and credit cards into the pockets easy yet maintains the security of a traditional stitched wallet. The use of minimal material also reduces the thickness otherwise found in a traditional wallet.
I’m certainly one to prescribe to the minimal wallet idea, the less the better, and I think the Nothing Fancy wallet adheres to that concept. In the video below you can see just how well these would work. The traditional wallet has two sections, one for bills and one for cards, the iPhone holder has room for a few cards and your phone, while the coin holder of course is great for holding random coins or small objects.
Plus it’s great that they come in three great colors, a red, a blue, and a natural leather. The bad part of all of this? They’re just concepts for now. But how great would it be if these existed?
