Silk Tri-fold Wallet
The Urban Ultralight Silk Tri-Fold Wallet was intended to be a beautiful upgrade to our popular Butterfly Wallet.
The silk fabric is gorgeous and iridescent in the color versions, and it feels great to hold. Unfortunately, we have found that silk is not a very durable fabric.
It is best for special occasions or in low-wear situations like a purse or pack. Expect only four to six months of service in tight pants pockets.
The Urban Ultralight Silk Tri-Fold Wallet is a work of art, if I can say so myself. It evolved as an attempt to add functionality to our popular Butterfly Wallet.
When I discovered beautiful silk wallets in Cambodia, I just had to use silk in the new design. Unfortunately, while it is quite gorgeous and functional, we’ve discovered that the silk fabric isn’t anywhere near as durable as our original nylon Butterfly Wallet which can last for years.
For maximum life, you might want to consider using it for special occasions. Women who wish to tuck it inside a purse or pack should still get years of use.
If you regularly slide it into a tight pants pocket, you can expect only about 4- 6 months of use before starting to see signs of wear. They are too beautiful to throw out, so we’re offering them on deep discount.
The is manufactured by a women’s educational non-profit organization in Cambodia called the Life and Hope Association Sewing Training School. I hope to visit them again soon and try again once I find sturdier fabric that is as beautiful as silk.
