Terrence Kelleman: Par Avion Tyvek Wallet
Designed by Terrence Kelleman, New York.
Our new Par Avion wallet brings back that youthful excited ness you used to get when you saw an international mail envelope for the first time (you just had to have one even if you didn't know anyone outside the USA).
Stitching is always the first thing that rips in a wallet so I designed this wallet without any parts or stitches it is simply one single sheet of high tech tyvek folded to create this seamless design.
Tyvek feels like paper but it is actually made of thousands of long plastic fibers creating a surface that is both light weight and durable yet super thin and tear resistant. Tyvek is also water resistant and will protect against the humidity in your pocket which destroys leather.
There is a secret storage area you can use by pulling out the tucked in flaps from the ends, place your things inside and re close the flap back over to hide them.
The tucked in flaps also allow the wallet to expand with use gradually providing you with more room as needed (from 5 up to 25 credit cards). The tyvek will wear in and get soft but will not break. All these amazing properties will give you a wallet that is lightweight, super strong, long-lasting, and thin.
Made from 25% post-consumer recycled content, they are environmentally friendly and can be recycled. Also holds Euro currencies.
