‘the union wallet’, is a slim minimalist wood wallet by australian based studio, madera. designed as an alternative to the ever worn and
disposable leather wallets. it is a first product from a range of wood based accessories, that combines wood with current manufacturing

and miscellaneous of other essential items. built with a front facing RFID shielding, the features help protect sensitive pay-as-you-go
cards from skimming.
