Wallet FAQ. Answering some of our most asked questions!

Frequently Asked Questions

Lately, we’ve been receiving a lot of the same questions (keep them coming) and wanted to provide a place where we can answer all these questions for everyone to see. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us using the contact form below.

What type of wallet is best for me?

It depends on what you want. Wallets are a very personal item and people want different things from them. Wallets can be generally split into 3 categories; functionality, size and material. With wallets, you’d be hard to find one wallet with all three of these. Usually, you have to compensate one for another.

I want a leather wallet. What are the best types of leather?

Wallets can come in a range of different leather types (or grades) which some very misleading in name. I have a full blog post regarding this topic here so it’s best to know what you’re getting before you purchase.

I’m unsure if I’d like a minimalist Wallet should I get one?

It’s definitely worth a try. I’d probably go with one of the more affordable minimalist wallets to start with before purchasing an expensive one and not liking it.  I’d recommend either a Crabby WalletE8 Elephant or Nomatic BASICS Wallet. The great thing about the Nomatic is they provide a 100% refund if you’re unsatified with your purchase. Great if you’re unsure if a slim wallet is for you.

What material should my wallet be made of?

We’re lucky to live in a time where there seems to be an endless amount of materials our wallets can be made from. Leather, wood, metal, and paper to name just a few. In terms of which is best is completely down to the wallet itself and what you want to prioritise. Generally speaking having a harder less flexible material like wood will results in a wallet with less functionality. It may look (and smell) amazing but a compromise has to be made. It’s really up to you.

Why are wallets so popular on Crowdfunding sites?

We get this question a lot. People are shocked at how many people put random wallets up on Kickstarter or IndieGoGo and earn tens of thousands in funding. In all honestly, we’re none the wiser. We think it has something to do with how simple but cool a wallet can be. How we can take something we’ve used for centuries and have someone reinvent it in some cool way. That’s what we like anyway.

As we receive more questions we’ll add them to the bottom of this post. Remember to submit any questions you have using our contact form below! Thanks.
