Things are disappearing from wallets. Money, photos, receipts, to-do lists—they're all on phones now. Wallets must evolve and adapt. This one has: Ultra-lightweight and slim, it's got four interchangeable plates to carry just what you need that day. It can hold up to 12 cards, plus coins, keys, and cash—or swap out a couple of cards to carry only cards and cash. Though it's minimal, it's also versatile: the cash/miscellaneous card has a cavity for a few folded dollar bills, memory cards, mini membership cards, or any other small flat items (floss?).
The secret to its success—besides diligently attentive design—is the innovative choice of material: industrial-grade, high-density chipboard, made from recycled paper and wood. Chipboard is commonly used in construction, car manufacturing, and shipping of fragile items, where it doesn't have to look pretty. For the wallet, though, a special, stringent manufacturing process creates a beautiful, uniform finish that's smooth to the touch and slips easily into the front pocket of the skinniest jeans.
The ultimate mod of this modular wallet is that you can draw or write on it. Scribble a favorite saying, draw your pet, or compose a message and place it in a loved one's holiday stocking.
Why do we call it DIY? It ships flat with pieces in a pop-out card. You put them together the way you want, every time you use it. Made in Japan.
