Last week WaterField Designs announced Wallet Month — the culmination of a two-month, 2,000-customer-participant, crowdsourced design project — with the launch of two minimalist wallets: the Minemo and the Clyff.
Now the company has unveiled a third wallet: the Stratto (pictured), a slim, full-grain leather bifold wallet with hidden slots for contactless cards, so users can tap-and-go while cards remain safely inside. It holds about eight to 10 cards in two interior pockets and a stash of unfolded bills.
Behind the cash compartment lie two hidden slots designed for users’ contactless cards. With work ID, metro or other such cards in place, users can use the Stratto to tap-and-go while leaving these cards securely inside. The bifold is available with or without RFID blocking and purportedly fits comfortably into a front-pants or jacket pocket. It’s $69 without RFID blocking and $79 with it.
Every week in March, WaterField will unveil two additional new wallets, each handcrafted in WaterField’s San Francisco sewing studio.
