Small thin wallet
Hitoe® Fold - Liscio

Sale price$140.00 USD

The origin of small, thin wallets and the complete model.

“I want to feel free to go out empty-handed.”
To make that wish come true, Hitoe® Fold, a small and thin wallet , was born.
The Hitoe® structure (registered design) that prevents stacking of stored items, inner hook (patented) that eliminates the need for metal fittings, and numerous ideas packed into a palm-sized package are the origins of a small, thin wallet that combines an extremely thin design with smooth operability .

Details that balance thinness and smallness

There is also some ingenuity in how the ends fit together.
The bottom of the card pocket becomes thicker than the other parts when the wallet is closed due to the influence of the inner hook. Therefore, the leather is layered and sewn together on the outside to keep it thin.
On the other hand, the side of the card pocket is made smaller by folding the leather and rolling it inside.
Although it is a thin wallet, it has a small size.

Made from a single piece that allows you to enjoy the feel of leather

Adopts thick leather that maintains sufficient thickness while pursuing thinness. We also value the texture of leather, such as tension and stiffness.

Inner hook without metal fittings

A new idea of ​​using the stored cards as clasps

We have devised an inner hook (patented) that can be hung on cards rather than on the outside of the wallet.
A smart leather hook that keeps your wallet thin and hidden from view .
This idea made possible the minimalist design of Hitoe® Fold, a small, thin wallet with no hardware .

Not only does it act as a clasp, but it also prevents the card from falling when you carry it.

Sandwiched with leather. But that's it.

Flat appearance just sandwiched between leather. Nothing sticks out, so it stays thin and won't get caught in your pocket.
Also, if you turn it inside out, the inner hook will not come off. You don't have to worry about opening the top or bottom incorrectly and dropping coins.

Minimal and smooth operation

Quick accounting with minimal movements

It can be easily opened and closed by bending it into the dogleg shape, which is where the name "Fold" comes from. With this one action, you can smoothly insert and remove coins and cards while keeping the wallet vertical.

(If you are right-handed) The trick is to bend the bottom of the wallet in a dogleg shape with your left hand and avoid touching the inner hook.

Just insert the banknotes without folding them

Just insert the banknotes without folding them . It is also highly visible and easy to take out. There are no creases or tri-folds , so it fits smoothly into vending machines and self-checkout machines.
The bill holder has a continuous design with the inner hook. The curve acts as a guide, allowing you to insert and remove it smoothly without getting caught.

You can smoothly put in and take out bills without touching the bill holder.

Cards are safe and smooth

When closed, the inner hook prevents the card from falling out . The card pocket has a large cutout that allows for smooth insertion and removal .

Smooth card insertion and removal

Smooth and secure coin pocket

The coin pocket is shallow and has no metal fittings such as zippers or hooks, so you can quickly retrieve the coins you need.
When storing the coin pocket, the lid of the coin pocket acts as a guide for smooth storage.
Also, if you close your wallet, the coins will not overflow. Even when the coin pocket is open, the lid of the coin pocket prevents it from overflowing.
There is plenty of room even if you put in 999 yen worth (15 pieces).

Does not spill easily during use

Design that follows the laws of nature

“Why is the golden ratio beautiful?”
The golden ratio of 1:1.62 is the aspect ratio of a rectangle with spiral repeating squares whose sides are the Fibonacci sequence . (Figure below)
In fact, the Fibonacci sequence is hidden everywhere in nature. The branches of trees, the number of petals, sunflower seeds, seashells, typhoons, spiral galaxies. It can also be found in art of the utmost beauty, such as the pyramids, the Parthenon, and the 36 Views of Mt.
The important thing is not to achieve the golden ratio. Proportions from the details to the whole follow the Fibonacci sequence , which is deeply related to nature and the providence of life, resulting in a well-balanced design that resonates with the heart .

This sequence is hidden in the beautiful proportions of the small, thin wallet Hitoe® Fold.

In general, most problems with wallets are caused by hardware or sewing. However, Hitoe® Fold, a small, thin wallet, does not use any hardware, and the stitching avoids the folded parts that are easily damaged .
Furthermore, the corners that are easily damaged are layered with outer leather and inner leather to increase durability. The seam allowance is extremely small, making it a design that won't lose its shape even in a pants pocket .
