Wallets bulging at the seams stuffed with receipts, sticky notes, traffic tickets, newspaper clippings and perhaps even a piece of gum or two, was accepted as the “norm” not long ago. However, a significant market has developed called minimal wallets, or minimalist wallets. These wallets are much more refined, smaller sized, offer excellent functionality and typically designed with much greater attention to detail. In today’s environment with rapidly advancing technology, the need for large, bulky and uncomfortable wallets is no longer present. Most people pay bills online or use apps on their smartphone to facilitate electronic payments.
Design, Style & Quality
Minimal wallets tend to have a lot more style and attention to the small details that adds character to each wallet. Because the companies making these wallets are not sitting around all day trying to find a new way to put in another credit card slot, they have the time to unleash their full attention on app design functions and compatibility.
Comfort & Function
Minimalist wallets are much more comfortable than traditional wallets. Most models are slim enough you can barely even feel it in your pocket front or back pocket. They normally come with 2-3 slots for ATM or credit cards, space for storing cash and even small miscellaneous storage depending on the particular design.
Small & Local Business
Many of the manufacturers and designers of minimal wallets are people with the dream of having their own business. They might not be in your city, or even in your state, but these are the types of companies that are the heart and soul of the economy.
In fact, a significant number of the companies in the minimal wallet space raised the start-up funds for their business through sites like kicktarter.com.
Unique Appearance & Vibrant Character
There are a huge variety of designs available for minimalist wallets, and most offer very unique character that is a reflection of the wallet owner. Having 4-6 different minimal wallets is ideal for mixing and matching with your clothes for the day or perhaps transitioning from a personal to a business environment.
