Minimalist or slim wallets are the rage nowadays and there are tons of different designs and wallet types to choose from. Unfortunately for us, LA based company, Comfy Goods, is not making things any easier for us by adding the choice of a slim wallet made from high quality natural Portuguese cork fabric. Cork fabric or sometimes known as cork leather is a renewable and biodegradable raw material that is made from cork shavings. Besides being an environmentally friendly material, cork fabric has the durability of leather but with the versatility of fabric.
Currently seeking funding via Kickstarter, the Monk Cork Wallet is not only unique but is ultra minimal. It is a simple sleeve wallet that measures just 2.5 in by 3.8 in. Besides the use of cork fabric, the wallet is held together using rivets and hand stitched using waxed threads. The rivets and hand stitching add a charming rustic look to the wallet. The Monk Wallet is designed to hold about 6 cards but you can always use it to replace your current wallet by storing a mix of both cards and cash in it.
The Monk Cork Wallet is available in 3 colors but Comfy Goods is making additional colors available as stretch goals. The color on the cork fabric material is dyed and not painted on so they do not wear off.
