I meant to blog about these innovative cardboard wallets on my return from Tokyo... then I managed to delete the photographs. Having remedied this situation, here they now are. I had the good fortune to meet their maker, Shimazu Fuyuki at 'Arts Chiyoda', also the home of '+81' Magazine. For a young guy his ideas are forward thinking, aesthetically pleasing and environmentally friendly. I came home with a wallet in my suitcase which was instantly re-housed in the back pocket of my boyfriends jeans. Three months later its looking better than ever, with additional creases & added distress that only 90 days in a pair of good denims can conjur up. It literally is the wallet that keeps on giving!
