A wallet like no other. Made strong. Almost square wallet is constructed for when you must strap everything in. Made from the same waxed canvas and recycled cotton as the bags, with strong metal zips this is a wallet that will last.
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.
