June 26, 2007 Wallets appeared soon after the introduction of paper currency in the early 17th century and ever since then, leather has been the material of choice. Gizmag has encountered a number of products aimed at equipping the wallet for the rigors of modern life including Wallet 2.0, The Jimi Wallet, the Tsaya Thigh Holster and now the Dosh Wallet - an Australian design that uses a blend of flexible and semi-flexible polymers to create a rugged, waterproof home for all of those items like credit cards, keys and sim cards that just weren’t an issue in the year 1642.
The design consists of purpose designed areas for storage of credit cards, sim cards, keys, condoms, notes and coins, as well as an integrated “quick-access” compartment for storing magnetic cards, and if the wallet gets grimy…. just rinse it under the tap.
