Vegan leather has come a long way in the last decade - so much so that vegan leather products are often mistaken for genuine leather! This advancement is making vegan leather wallets extremely popular.
Are you excited to join the trend, but stuck trying to decide between a vegan leather wallet and a money clip?
Let’s look at what a vegan leather wallet is, what a money clip is, and their pros and cons.
A vegan leather wallet is just a wallet made from vegan leather. Vegan leather is a material that looks and feels like leather but is made from plant-based or artificial materials rather than animal skin.
Wallets are designed to carry small personal items. This could be a wide variety of things, but the most popular items are larger amounts of cash, credit cards, IDs, photographs, public transit passes, business cards, etc. Wallets come in a variety of different designs, some are larger than others.
A money clip is a functional accessory most commonly used by men. It holds bills that are folded in half. The whole premise behind money clips is to eliminate the need for a wallet. Money clips could be gold, silver, bejeweled, or even engraved! Here at Doshi, we have Pinatexand Vegan Leather money clips!
Money clips are folded pieces of metal that take the shape of a flat "U." The two ends of the shape press together to hold the money in place. Money clips are commonly used by people who don’t want to carry a wallet but want cash on hand.
Wallets have changed over the years, and the wallets made today combine modern technology and engineering. But it doesn't matter if you prefer the traditional bifold or a wallet that’s a little fresher, you can rest assured that one thing has never changed: your valuables will remain secure and safe inside a wallet.
In a wallet, you can keep everything from credit cards to cash, membership cards, identification photographs, business cards, and any other small mementos you’ve collected throughout the years.
Nowadays, some wallets even have capabilities that allow you to increase how many cards you can carry at a time. Additionally, wallets made of high-quality materials like Kraft Paper and vegan leather are more flexible, distinctive, cruelty-free, and better for the environment.
However, there are a few areas where wallets fall short compared to money clips. Unfortunately, many wallets that are not zip wallets do not fully close at the top. This means cards, coins, cash, and other valuables can be stolen or fall out if you aren’t careful.
Additionally, many of us tend to put too many items in our wallets and quickly turn them into a place to store random things we don’t need daily. This could be gift cards, business cards, hotel key cards, receipts, and more! These random things can make wallets bulkier and more difficult to carry.
Wallets are definitely the more popular option of the two, but don’t count a good money clip out. They have a lot to offer as well!
The main advantage that money clips have is their compact size and portability. They were specifically designed to allow you quick access to your supplies. When you think about it, your daily carry most likely doesn’t require more than cash, a credit card or two, and a driver’s license. All of this can easily fit into a good money clip.
There are a couple of cons of a money clip. The biggest drawback is security. If you’re not careful with your money clip and wave your cash around in a populated area like public transport or a mall, this could lead to some problems.
You may also find that you spend some time organizing cash before getting on with your day. There would be a definite time-saving possibility if you were to stick with a more standard wallet like a bifold. On the other hand, the time issue may go away over time as you use your money clip. As you become accustomed to it, using it will become second nature.
If you’ve never tried carrying a money clip, you should try it! There’s no harm in it. You can always switch your things back to a wallet if you don’t like it. On the other hand, you may find that a money clip is perfect for you, and you’ll never go back!
Here on the Doshi Blog, we want to encourage and support people in buying and wearing vegan and ethical products. We offer both wallets and money clips for men and women. You’ll find a variety of different styles and materials. We wanted to make sure there was something for everyone!
Vegan products are just as timeless as the conventional version and have price advantages. When you compare vegan designer items to ones made of genuine leather, you’ll often find that vegan options are cheaper, with no dip in quality and a huge bonus in moral integrity. For these reasons, vegan accessories/products make great alternatives!
