Simpler Wallet For The Age of Digital Cash

In the growing age of digital currency where our phones are taking over our payments, what becomes of our wallets?  If you look through any man’s pockets, you’re sure to a trifold chunk of leather that’s gone mostly unchanged since the rise of credit cards in the 1950s. Yet as NFC invades our phones to take over the payment industry, we’ll have less and less scraps of plastic to carry around. Will the wallet die? Not quickly. But it will certainly transform.

Astro Studios  spent a year rethinking the next generation of wallet–one that’s beyond the credit card, but still holds an ID, cash, business card, and, sure, any last looming credit cards in your pocket, too. What they came up with is , a multi-tiered wallet hand-stitched from a single piece of leather. It’s thin in the pocket but heirloom-quality in the hand; the vegetable tanned leather options invoke a grandfather-approved design that certainly brings to mind the mantra, “what’s old is new again,” and Astro Studios is the first to admit it.
