The Matchbox Zipper Wallet is designed to be the smallest possible way to carry 6-8 cards and a couple bills. You can also slide a house key in this wallet allowing you to keep all your carrying needs to one small, compact, package. It does not have a divider or any interior organization—keeping it as slim and streamlined as possible—perfect for the extreme minimalist.
The Matchbox is named after the small cardboard containers used to hold matches (I guess that didn’t really need to be explained). We modified the Brea’s inverted gusset design to make this wallet. After 10+ slight dimension changes and design tweaks, we finally landed on the smallest functional zipper wallet possible. The photo below is the original sketch of the Matchbox in my journal.
