Inspired by the traditional Japanese origami technique, we have developed a sturdy, small, seamlessly folded wallet.
The vegan, durable, tear-resistant and waterproof material, made of latex-bound cellulose fibers, has a pleasant feel between leather and paper. It is resistant to abrasion and forms neither lint nor nodule. Over time, it gets a nice patina.
Thanks to its small format and the contemporary material, the wallet is very versatile. It does not interfere with the sport, it is allowed to get wet while cycling and it fits in the evening in the smallest pocket.
Our minimalist wallets are exclusively folded. Neither seams nor adhesives are used. Their durability and stability result from the complex folding of the special material.
The vegan purses are made of washable paper, a latex-bound cellulose fiber with a feel between leather and paper. It is resistant to abrasion and tear, does not form lint or nodules. Over time, it gets a nice patina. In contrast to real leather, the material called, by the way, also wash paper, may get wet without being damaged.
It is foldable as paper, resistant as leather and waterproof as latex!
The mini wallet has 4 separate compartments for coins, bank notes, 3-6 credit cards and business cards.
For our small, lightweight and waterproof purses, racing cyclists, joggers and other athletes should be enthusiastic. But also for everyday life, at work or traveling, they are the ideal companion. Thanks to their mini size, they fit in the smallest pocket and do not bruise clothes.
We manufacture the fine purses in our studio in Essen. Here they are cut, colored and hand-folded.
We are architects from Essen, minimalistic in design and with attention to detail.
Since we needed a small wallet that fits comfortably in the front pocket of the pants while being lightweight and waterproof, we started developing a variety of model types. But we were always bothered by the seams or closures. So we decided to create a small origami wallet.
The first models were made of paper, but then we found the waterproof and foldable so-called washable paper and were able to make our first small origami wallet. After extensive testing in sports, wind and weather, we began to produce and distribute it in small series and limited editions in our studio in Essen.
Now we just have to reveal what Lia means:
LOVE IS ALL (EVERYTHING).
