‘nothing fancy’ – minimal wallets by chieh
‘nothing fancy’, the non-stitched minimalist wallet, is the first product in a range of everyday
accessories by taiwanese designer chieh re-imagined for a contemporary lifestyle. the wallet
has its origins in the classic image of the bundle of banknotes held together by a rubber band.
each wallet is created from a single piece of leather, requiring no stitching — shortening the time
it takes to produce each one and saving on materials. the custom-made rubber bands make placing
banknotes and credit cards into the pockets easy yet maintains the security of a traditional wallet –
reducing the thickness through using minimal amounts of materials. the same concept is applied
to a coin case, an iPhone holder and a passport holder for a range of simplified versions
of various accessories.
a wallet that has two sections, one for bank notes and one for credit cards
a coins case made from a folded single piece of leather. the rigidity of the heavyweight leather naturally creates the pocket structure
an iPhone holder with a slit on the back in which to slide travel or credit cards.
a passport holder that includes a pocket for placing a boarding pass and other travel documents
the contents of your wallet are held in place securely by the rubber bands, which being flexible allow for as much capacity as a traditional wallet
the simple structure of the coins case is also very easy to use
the shorter front of the iPhone holder give you a hint of the incoming calls
the passport holder simply organizes the documents you need when traveling
