The Brea Zipper Wallet is designed to remain slim while boasting a large, organized, carrying capacity. The same piece of leather used to create the inverted gusset also creates an interior pocket, which reduces the layers of leather and keeps the Brea thin. The interior pocket accommodates US bills folded in half and also serves as a divider, allowing you to organize your cash and credit cards to suit your needs. Whether you slide this zipper wallet in your pocket or toss it in a bag, it provides the best of both worlds—simplicity & functionality.
This 2014 design began as a custom request from Venky Krishnan. Venky’s design was brilliant, but before developing it as a product I sent a prototype to Steve Montelli to get his feedback. Steve is the slim-wallet guru on YouTube; he’s reviewed hundreds of wallets and he coined “the sniff test” for determining leather quality. Steve and his audience gave lots of great input that helped fine-tune the design of this wallet. To thank him for the support, we named the wallet after Brea, CA, the city where Steve lives.
