The term French wallet refers to wallets that contain two sections:
1) An easily accessible section where bills and cards are kept, and
2) A secure section closed by a zipper, flap, or kiss lock.
Our French Wallet combines a snap button section for cards which opens up to a full length bill compartment and a zipper area for coins, earbuds, or other small essentials.
French wallets are a great choice for those who carry purses that are not as wide and need a wallet with a square form factor.

Kraft Paper v. Cork: In recent years, we've seen items made of cork get a fair deal of attention. In our research, cork does not represent a good eco-friendly and vegan alternative because the backing, often made from polyester, makes up the majority of the product. The cork layer that is glued on top of the polyester is a small fraction of the thickness of the material. We believe that kraft paper, which contains at least 50% cellulose (and can approach 80% cellulose) is a much more eco-friendly material. While we have made cork items in the past, we stopped manufacturing with cork a few years ago once we better understood the material. We are open to revisiting the cork if the material stops requiring a backer.
