Non Leather, Luxury Vegan Wallets

 

About the collection

Our award-winning collection of non-leather, ethically made, luxury vegan wallet styles are all designed in the UK and handcrafted using traditional leather-working techniques in Europe. Our choice of materials are 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, sustainable choice. Every vegan leather wallet is made by people who are respected for their skill and paid a fair wage.

We have purposely designed and chosen materials that look and feel like leather to encourage people to make an ethical choice without compromising on quality or style. Cruelty free wallets are a great choice if you are looking to lower your impact on the planet.

We are proud to offer a range of traditional wallet styles which includes the bifold wallet and wallet with coin pocket and we have a growing collection of card holders too.

All our men’s wallets are made with RFID protection.

Our materials

Our range of vegan wallets are each handmade with high quality plant-based leather. The innovative material has a base layer made from non-food grade corn oil and the final material contains up to 30% bio plant content. The corn used for the material is from a renewable source so the material has a much lower CO2 footprint and is more environmentally friendly than a regular vegan leather. On the surface, a layer of PU provides benefits such as water, stain and scratch resistance.

The lining we use has been made from 100%, post-consumer 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.

Personalised wallets

A personalised 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.

Personalisation adds personality, it make your mark and defines the wallet as something that is uniquely theirs. All our wallets can be personalized and the embossed lettering is added to the front, bottom right-hand corner.

You can add this service easily on the product details page of the item. The service takes between 3-5 days to complete, but if you require an item much faster, please do get in touch and we will do our best to get it to you sooner.

A personalised wallet makes a very special keepsake gift that they will carry with them every day.

How many wallets should a man have?

This is really a question of personal preference, but for many two seems to work really well for a number of reasons.

Style: Owning one in black and one in brown, should cater to most of your wardrobe combinations. Matching your shoe and belt colour is already an essential part of wardrobe styling. Adding a matching wallet into the mix will elevate your look.

Function: If you travel, then arguably a second wallet is ideal for slimming down your cards. We rarely need all the cards we carry every day, we need them even less when we are overseas. Carrying less whilst travelling is safer too. Choosing a lightweight card wallet (make sure it has RFID) means you can carry it more easily in shorts and in your front trouser pocket.

Why do wallets have an ID window?

ID windows have been popular in wallets for decades and wallets are still available with ID windows for those who find them essential. ID windows allow a person to flash an ID card without the need to remove the card from the wallet.

Things to consider when a wallet has an ID window.

Space: An ID window undoubtedly takes up space in a wallet leaving less room for cards. Some wallet designs have an ID window on the inside as a third section which sits in the middle of the wallet. Do remember that the more sections a wallet has the fatter it must be. Very often, the tri-section bifold can become very bulky once filled.

Plastic: ID windows are most commonly made with PVC. Aside from being labelled as the most environmentally damaging plastic, PVC degrades over time. There is a very good chance that your wallet will still look good when the ID window is cracked and warped.

For environmental reasons we do not use PVC in any of our collections. Therefore, our wallets are not made with ID windows.

Why you should never carry your wallet in your back pocket

There are two main reasons why you are advised not to carry your wallet in a back pocket.

Pickpockets: You may have guessed this one already, but it is extremely common for wallets to be stolen from the back pocket of jeans or trousers.  It is therefore advised that wallets are carried out of sight or in a front trouser pocket.

Your health: Really. According to the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) around 84% of the entire world population will experience some form of back pain in their life.

One of the main causes of lower back pain could be the bulky wallet in your pocket. Sitting on any surface with a wallet in your pocket creates an asymmetry that distorts your pelvis and hips. This can create physical stress on ligaments, muscles, nerves, and discs, which can ultimately lead to sciatic pain.

Even the smallest wallet or card holder can irritate your sciatic nerve, which happens to be just above where your wallet sits. 

Where should you carry your wallet?

The safest place to carry your wallet is in the front pocket of your trousers, a shirt pocket or a jacket pocket.

If you carry a bulky wallet, perhaps it's the perfect time to slim down and reduce what you carry.
