Ethical and sustainable coin wallets

 

About the collection

Our Award-Winning collection of coin pocket wallets are designed in the UK, and handcrafted in Europe using traditional leather-working techniques. Our choice of materials is befitting of modern times, when we are all more conscious of the environment and the impact our choices have on the planet.

Wearing a vegan belt or other non-leather accessories is no longer just about animal welfare, it is about making an ethical and sustainable choice. Every coin wallet is made with premium quality materials by people who are respected for their skill and paid a fair wage.

We have purposely chosen next-generation non-leather materials which offer an environmental saving over traditional leather. The collection looks and feels like leather so you can shop without compromising on quality or style. Items can be personalised with initials and shipped worldwide.

All our coin wallets are made with RFID protection as standard.

Our materials

Our coin wallets are each handmade with a high-quality alternative to leather. Made from non-food grade corn, the material contains more than 30% plant content. The corn is from a renewable source, and the final material is 3 x more environmentally friendly than animal leather. The surface layer of PU provides water, stain and scratch resistance.

Inside, the woven lining has been made using 100% recycled plastic bottles. It is soft and strong like polyester, but unlike virgin polyester, recycled PET fabric has a significantly lower impact on the environment. It uses 94% less water, 60% less energy and 32% less CO2 to manufacture.

What is a coin wallet?

Coin wallets are designed with a dedicated pocket to hold your coins. This could be a zipped pocket, a pocket with a snap, it could be inside, or outside, but they all have the capacity to hold your coins safely and securely without affecting the use and longevity of your wallet.

The coin pocket will usually have a small gusset to allow for expansion and be compact and slim when not in use.

Why choose a wallet with an internal coin pocket?

Our coin wallets are intentionally designed with coin pockets on the inside. The coin pocket has an expanding gusset on each side, allowing fair sized capacity when you are carrying coins, but remaining flat inside the wallet when you have fewer or no coins in it.

We choose not to use a zips in our coin wallet designs and there are a couple of reasons for this. Zips on the outside can snag the lining of your trousers and jackets. Zipped pockets on the inside are created with a gusset on only one side of the pocket. In our opinion, this causes bulking on one side of the wallet rather than evenly spreading the coins and reducing bulk.

What are the disadvantages of a wallet with a coin pocket?

To keep a wallet compact, and have the versatility and flexibility of carrying coins, some compromise is inevitable. Wallets with a coin pocket may have less space for cards, or less pockets in general, so if you fancy giving this style a go, be honest about what cards you need to carry, have a clear out, and then look at the capacity your new wallet needs.

Be careful too, if you find a coin wallet that offers too much, for example one which holds lots of cards, cash, coins, an ID window etc, then you may quickly end up with a very fat wallet.

Over bulking any wallet can cause premature wear and tear on the stitching and lining.

Personalised wallets

A personalized wallet is one of the best gifts you can give. A wallet transcends age and interests and being able to add that final bespoke touch of personalisation is the last stage in creating a truly memorable gift.

All our coin wallets can be personalized and the embossed lettering is added to the front, bottom right hand corner.
