Your wallet is unlike other things you own. It undergoes immense stress living in your backpocket, whilst holding some of your most private and important documents. If we were to be sensible, you’d lockaway or use a safe to store your ID, cash and bank cards – (although receipts, scraps of paper, a business card from that chap you met last thursday, are probably okay in your pocket.) but carrying a safe out and about is not ideal.
Design wise, making this wallet was evolutionary – the ‘almost square’ outer design (hence the name) is dictated by the contents, building on this we wanted to see how a fully zipped ‘strong’ wallet could be made, but also look reasonably sophisticated and of course be the right size for a backpocket (or wherever you carry it). Construction is with C+S laminated and waxed cotton canvas. This water resistant natural material is perfectly suited for daily use, over time it relaxes and develops a wonderful pattina. It starts out stiff and crisp, but with use molds to the things you carry, and way you use it. Inside was a challenge, keeping bulk down, and strength up whilst providing the right amount of room for cards, cash and coins.
Almost Square has been in constant production for just over 5 years now, each production takes advantage of our small production volumes, handcraft skills and ability to tweak and change the design. Today Almost Square is the best we’ve ever made it. We are positive this is the perfect wallet when you want to carry lots, it only gets better with use.

What makes Cora + Spink?
Products that benefit everyone who touches them. From co-operatively sourced materials, to good wages and positive working environments.
Using natural materials means every C+S product will naturally biodegrade. Right now, 92% by mass will biodegrade within 10 years, the 8% padding, fixtures etc will take longer, but we're working on this.
Ethically sourced through local cooperatives, cotton is made from garment and mill industry waste fibres and offcuts.
Made in a 100% vegan environment using zero animal based materials or products, including glues, finishes and waxes.
No Plastic Bottles.
Recycling plastics is inefficient, pollutive and has been shown to increase the consumption of single use plastic. It is an example of greenwashing and something we will never endorse.
What others are saying.
Each review is a personal story.
Recently acquired a zip-around wallet. Delivery was very quick, in fact within two days. I was surprised and pleasantly pleased.
Having had a Cora + Spink wallet for a couple of days now, I would add that the quality and design of the wallet is tough yet elegant, sturdy yet simplistic; spacious yet conserved. In particular the spaces inbetween the card pockets allows me to take out a card easily and effortlessly, unlike my previous slim wallet. The little forest motif design in the wallet is... cute? I suppose. I've noticed it's a running a theme in most of the Cora+Spink's bags.
Overall the wallet is very secure and rugged.
Just recieved the Almost Square wallet from Tim having been recommended to try one out by a family memeber who had one of the originals from years ago, that's still going strong. Hopefully this one will last me as long as that. Good stitching. Good canvas. And a good size.
The outside canvas is the same as the backpacks, it has a water repellant treatment that makes the canvas rain proof. The natural and vegan process the canvas undertakes is ideal for all normal weather and conditions, it can also be further treated with Cora + Spink wax finishes. Over time the canvas will need to be topped up if you're outdoors lots. Please get in touch if you need more information.
We accept returns within 30 days where the product has not been used and is returned to us in the same condition (so we can sell it) as it arrived. This includes all straps, buckles, packaging, labels and other supplemental items included in the original sale. Please contact us directly to authorise and obtain a returns address. Full refund/returns policy is available here.
All C + S products are made by hand using natural materials. They are strong and robust, but do require care and attention to ensure they have a long and fulfilling life. We recommend removing mud and stains with a stiff brush, you can then use a damp cloth to gently remove any unwanted marks. Due to the nature of the material finish, you may encounter fading of the canvas - this is to be expected. Do use harsh chemicals, and do not wash in a washing machine. Specialist cleaners can help - if you have a particularly difficult stain please contact us directly, and we will do our best to advise.
Short answer, absolutely yes. No animal products or by products are used in the production of the backpacks, this includes but is not limited to the glues and treatments, the inks, dyes and the waxes... the working environment where all the backpacks are made is exclusively used only for Core + Spink products, meaning we control all elements of production.
