Wallets get bulky pretty quick, taking up lots of unwanted space in our pockets. If you don’t want a goiter on your leg or your butt, minimalist wallets can help. Usually they cost quite a bit more than they’re worth, but Elephant Wallets are pretty affordable.
If you’ve heard of the HuMn and TGT wallets, you know they’re great minimalist options that come with a hefty price tag. Elephant Wallets come in similar styles with many more customization options, but don’t cost quite so much. You can even get one that attaches to your smartphone.
The wallets either work as an elastic band with little pockets or as a two-panel system that holds cards in the middle (pictured above). Both types come in several varieties and material, including wood, metal, and leather. The only real downside to these handmade wallets is that they’re created in Poland. That’s great if you’re nearby, but for those of us in the United States it’s a long wait.
