Tried and True Trifold

During High School, designer Charles Friedman worked as a sail maker, building and repairing boat sails on the coast of Maine. When his grandfather's leather wallet fell apart, Charles decided to construct a new one from sailcloth scraps and was pleasantly surprised to find that this water-resistant material is perfectly suited to swiftly navigate delicate possessions, like cash, cards, and checks, through the elements.

Built with the same high-tech racing sailcloth used by the world's sailing elite, this stylish and super-durable wallet will keep your essentials in ship shape. This industrial fabric is distinguished as one of the toughest, lightest, and most resilient materials in the world. The core fibers have several times the tensile strength of steel and will protect your goods inside a large cash pocket and six cardholders. Handmade of sailcloth scraps in Maine.

Over the next six years, Chuck built hundreds of prototype wallets, carefully refining the flowfold design. In 2011 Chuck founded Flowfold as an ecologically conscious company interested in local productivity.
