    New Design Debuting TODAY! Meet the Most Minimalist Minimal Wallet ever made

    New Design Debuting TODAY! Meet the Most Minimalist Minimal Wallet ever made-nik-wallet-freedom-jpg
    This is the kind of freedom you’ll feel with the Most Minimalist Minimal Wallet ever made.



    Nik’s original Minimalist Wallets debuted in late 2018. Though many appreciated the original wallets, some asked for an even more minimal design. Nik went back to the drawing board — and to the shopping mall — and designed what we proudly claim is the most minimal minimalist wallet ever made.

    The design of Nik’s original Minimalist Wallets was inspired by origami. His inspiration for the Most Minimalist Minimal Wallet was sourced from a different wellspring: the purely decorative pockets on women’s slacks, which provide all of the style features of pockets without the major drawback—namely, feeling obliged to store objects in the pockets, the accumulation of which can lead to unsightly lumpiness in one’s pants.

    “There is no way forward in crafting an object to be more minimal. The path to true minimalism is backwards so that one may remove unnecessary additions; this eventually achieves the ultimate realization, that of stasis. My goal was to invite the consumer back to a simpler time — a time before currency and credit history existed — and to provide the experience of life lived without identification. Literally — as in, without government-issued ID.”
    – Nik

    Nik’s Most Minimalist Minimal Wallet features two “pockets” and holds nothing. It is priced at $1,000 due to its exquisite lack of utility.

    This wallet asks so you don’t have to: do I really need this? Can I purchase it?

    It needs to be just a little more minimalist. Just one-sided. Two is too many.

    But where will you put it!?

    Maybe if it's version #4 with the loop, we can wear it as a necklace

    I was really impressed with that insight into the design process: a book by Carl Jung and a bottle of Tito's vodka! Wink

    BWA-HAHAHHAHAHA! This hits close to home. I just bought a couple of pairs of chinos from Anthropologie with lumpy, useless pockets. Last night I cut the pockets out and glued the ends shut with Steam-a-Seam II, because I was too lazy to get out my sewing machine.

    "OOOH, a new wallet!" says the one who forgot it was April 1st...

    I see the pics before the post, so read the title, clicked on the link, saw the last pic and immediately went to the website to find what colors it was in!!!
