The plastic bag to the left unfortunately symbolises how I travelled this summer. I looked extensively locally for a more elegant solution but the local market for carry appears to have changed. No longer can you easily find iconic cases for your iPhone, nor can you find beautiful products like this leather wallet from Bellroy (truth be told products of this quality are hard to find anywhere). In Taiwan, or at least the city in which I have live, perhaps interest has waned or simply changed to online retailers.
I have had one of Bellroys’ slim wallets for a number of years and can attest to the quality. It’s developed a lovely patina in places and still retains it’s original good looks and that great leather smell. It feels great in your hands too, a surprisingly often overlooked characteristic considering the amount of time wallets and cases are in our hands.
Bellroy’s Elements zip wallet features a water-resistant zip closure and vegetable tanned leather for all-weather protection, internal pockets for passport and currency, a micro travel pen with refill and Bellroy’s 3 year warranty. Perfect for your travel essentials or simply a fantastic way to protect your iPhone and a few items you need through-out your day. It’s on my wish list.
