Small thin wallet

I want to go out with nothing!
The Hitoe® Fold, a small, thin wallet, was created to fulfill this desire.
The Hitoe® structure ( design registered), which prevents stacking of items, an inner hook ( patent pending) that eliminates metal fittings, minimalistic and smooth operability, and16 prestigious design awards around the world have made Hitoe® Fold the ideal wallet for the cashless era.

We have designed this product with ingenuity in pursuit of ideals appropriate for the cashless era.

Pursuit of ultimate thinness

HITOE® (single) structure that stands out for its thinness

The Hitoe® (single) structure (design registered ), in which cards and coins are not stacked on top of each other, realizes thinness.
Thickness of 10mm when 5 cards are stored (thickest part)
・Palm size 92 x 92mm
・Weight approx. 39g
Maximum capacity of 10 banknotes, 20 coins and 7 cards.
Small thin wallet Hitoe® Fold holds plenty, yet remains thin.

Details designed for thinness

The edges are not "rolled in" but have a "seam allowance". This is in pursuit of thinness. If the wallet is rolled in, the size will be smaller, but the overlap of the leather will increase and it will become thicker.
This detail is faithful to the ideal of a thin wallet.

While pursuing a thin wallet, the leather is thick enough, and the leather texture, such as tension and firmness, is also important.

Inner hook for a hardware-free wallet

A new concept that uses the cards stored in the wallet as a clasp.

We have devised an inner hook (patent pending) that hangs from the card instead of the outside of the wallet.
This smart leather hook keeps the wallet thin and does not show on the front.
This idea made possible the minimalist design of the small, thin Hitoe® Fold wallet with no hardware.

It not only serves as a clasp but also prevents cards from falling out.

Just clasp it with leather and that's it!

Flat appearance with just a leather clasp. No hardware, flap, or other extraneous items protrude, so there is no snagging in the pocket.
The inner hook is designed so that it will not come off when the front and back are reversed, so there is no need to worry about dropping coins when the top and bottom are opened by mistake.

Minimalist and smooth operation

Quick checkout with minimal movements

The wallet can be easily opened and closed by bending it into a "U" shape. With this single action, the wallet remains in portrait orientation, and all money and cards can be inserted and removed with a minimal and effortless movement of the dominant hand.

The trick is to simply bend the wallet in a "wiggle" shape and not touch the inner hook.

Banknotes remain in place without being folded

Just insert banknotes without folding them. It is highly visible and easy to take out. Since there are no creases or tri-fold bends, it is gentle on the receiver and goes smoothly into vending machines and self-checkout machines.

Cards can be smoothly inserted and removed without touching the bill holder.

Cards are safe and smooth

Cards will not fall out if the inner hook is hung on the card and the wallet is closed. Large notches on the inner hook and on the opposite corners allow for smooth insertion and removal.

Smooth card insertion and removal

Extra cards can be held in the bill holder. The card holder can be used to open and close the wallet without any problems.

開き方 - 小さな薄い財布 Hitoe® Fold Temporary cards can be placed on the card holder.

Coin pocket for easy access

The coin pocket is shallow, and the lid (short flap) has no fasteners or hooks, so you can quickly remove the coins you need without removing them.
When storing, the short flap serves as a guide for smooth storage.
Even without hardware, coins will not overflow once the wallet is closed. The short flap keeps coins from overflowing while the wallet is in use.
There is plenty of room for 999 yen (15 coins).

Once the leather gets used to it, it is spill-proof during use.

World-renowned minimalist design

Winner of 16 prestigious design awards around the world

The Hitoe® Fold series has been highly acclaimed for its functional and minimalist design, and has won 16 major design awards from London, New York, Paris, Milan, and Hong Kong, as well as the iF design award and the red dot design award, the world's three most prestigious design awards.

Design in accordance with the laws of nature

Why is the Golden Ratio so beautiful?
The Golden Ratio 1:1.62 is the aspect ratio of a rectangle made up of a spiral of squares with the Fibonacci sequence as one side. (see below)
And the Fibonacci sequence is hidden everywhere in nature. Tree branches, the number of petals, sunflower seeds, seashells, typhoons, spiral galaxies. It can also be found in the most beautiful art forms, such as the pyramids, the Parthenon, and the 36 Views of Mount Fuji.
It is not the golden ratio that is important. It is the Fibonacci sequence, in which the proportions from the smallest detail to the whole are deeply related to nature and the providence of life, that results in a well-balanced design that resonates with the heart.

フィボナッチ数列 - 小さな薄い財布 Hitoe® Fold Proportions based on the spiral of the Fibonacci sequence

Beautiful details

The precise and delicate stitching, the transparent and polished leather cross-section, the polished leather floor, and the fine lines (nenpiki) placed around the edges with a hot iron, all contribute to the beauty of this small wallet. Every detail of Hitoe® Fold, a small, thin wallet, has been designed for beauty.

小さな薄い財布 Hitoe® Foldの刻印 For simplicity, the engraving is hidden under the card

Smoothly textured vachetta leather

The leather used is vacchetta leather, which has been used in the Tuscany region of Italy since the early 9th century. Tanned with vegetable tannin and slowly soaked in oil, the leather has an almost permanent moist and shiny texture.
The silver surface is smooth and fine, with a natural color variation due to the dye finish, giving the leather an elegant and tasteful look.
The aging process of vacchetta leather stands out among other Italian leathers, and the color and luster deepen beautifully.

(For a detailed description of the leather, please click on the "Liscio's Leather" tag.)

Long and beautiful use.

Most wallet problems are caused by hardware and sewing. The small, thin Hitoe® Fold wallet uses no hardware at all and only four stitches.
The corners, which are prone to damage, are made with layers of outer and inner leather to increase durability. The seam allowance is as small as possible, so the design does not easily lose its shape even when used in a trouser pocket.

The Hitoe® Fold series has received national and international recognition with numerous records and awards.
The Hitoe® Fold Aria, in particular, has won 11 awards, including the "iF Design Award" and "Red Dot".

Q. What is the difference between Hitoe® Fold, ~Aria, and ~Less?

Hitoe Fold Aria and Hitoe Fold Less are flagship models, in which materials, design, functionality, and details are all pursued without compromise.
Hitoe Fold" is the second grade that realizes this concept with leather that lets you enjoy its leatheriness.

Difference 5: Feel of use
Depending on the stitching on the side of the bill holder, the "Hitoe Fold" may feel a little scratchy when inserting or removing bills from the side. Also, the sliding of banknotes may cause more friction.
The "Hitoe Fold Aria" and " Hitoe Fold Less" have a card pocket that is designed to prevent the card from falling out even when the clasp is removed.

Q. Do you have any tips for opening and closing?

A. If you bend the border between the coin and the card in a "ku" shape, the hook on the card will come off and you can use the card smoothly.

To close the cardholder's wallet, gently press down on the top of the flap and bend the flap in a "ku" shape so that the hook will naturally fit over the card. The trick is to keep your fingers away from the hook.

To close, simply slide it while holding it down (e.g. Hitoe Fold).

Q. When I close it, it is distorted.

This is caused by misuse of the hook on the outside of the wallet. Please hang the hook only on the card to be stored.

(ex. Hitoe Fold)

Q. Will coins or cards overflow?

A. No. If the wallet is closed by placing the hooks over the cards to be stored, there will be no overflow of coins or cards. When the wallet is opened, the lid of the coin pocket will hold the coins in place, preventing them from overflowing. However, if the wallet is used horizontally, there is a possibility that coins will overflow. Please use the wallet in portrait orientation.

Smooth texture

Liscio is an Italian word meaning "smooth.
The silver surface is smooth and fine, with natural unevenness in color due to the dye finish, giving it an elegant and tasteful leather-like appearance.

The leather used is vacchetta leather, which has been used in the Tuscany region of Italy since the early 9th century. The leather is tanned with vegetable tannin and soaked with oil slowly, so that you can enjoy its almost permanent moisture and gloss.

The aging process of vacchetta leather stands out among other Italian leathers, and the color and luster of the leather deepens beautifully.

Aging

CamelCamel: The color of camel hair. A light brown with yellowish tints.
ChestnutChestnut: Chestnut. A reddish brown.
Teal Teal : The color of a duck's facial hair. The blue-green color gradually darkens.
Black Black : The leather gradually turns from matte to glossy black.

Natural Mark

Animals are bound to have scratches, stains, insect bites, and other blemishes.
In ordinary leather, these are covered up with pigments and enamels.

However, this leather is dyed to preserve the original texture and feel of the leather. Therefore, the following "living proofs (natural marks)" are often engraved on the leather.

These are the unique characteristics of natural materials and are not defects. However, each person has his or her own taste in the appearance. If you wish, we can replace them. If you wish to exchange the item, please check the exchange section of " Warranty, Repair, Cancellation, and Returns" before proceeding.

Scratches

The cows that are the source of this leather are raised on pasture so that they grow up in a healthy and stress-free environment. Therefore, there are many small scars and insect bites from bumps and fights. These scars are "rose scars. The better the leather grows in a natural environment, the better the quality of the leather, but the more rose scars there will be.

They are scattered throughout the leather and only small parts can be removed if they are avoided. Therefore, they are often found on large parts.

This is a unique expression of natural leather that can never be seen in man-made materials.

Bloodstain

The most common sign that a leather is natural and not man-made is the "blood streak", a pattern unique to natural leather.

These are the traces of blood vessels under the skin. Some are faintly visible on the silver surface, some remain as light wrinkles, and some are clearly visible on the floor.

Tigers.

A long stripe pattern created when the complex shape of an animal is flattened into leather. It is called "tiger" because it looks like the stripes of a tiger.

Tigers are especially common around the neck, and since this leather is shoulder, tigers are frequently seen. The area around the spine, where there are many tigers, has a high fiber density and the leather is of good quality. Flat, wrinkle-free leather is not necessarily better quality.

In Italian leather, tigers are a very popular characteristic that enriches the look of the leather.

Pinholes

Pores and hair follicles remain in the leather and are called "pinholes.
The leather is often seen as a natural expression, especially when the leather is only dyed and has little surface treatment, as in this case.

レザーアイテムは永く使っていきたい

使い始めて一ヶ月。独特な開閉は慣れが必要ですが、開けた時のデザインの良さと質感に所有感が満たされます。小銭入れの使い勝手も意外にいい。色はTeal(少しトラが入ってました)。これからのエイジングに期待。カードを4枚以上持たれる方にはオススメです。スキミング防止のカードを入れるとIDなどのタッチ決済には反応しません。でも旅好きにはこのサービスはありがたい。

この度は、数ある商品の中からお買い求め頂き誠にありがとうございます。
ご満足いただき光栄です。
すでにご存じかもしれませんが、トラは首元の背骨付近に多く、革質としては腹側よりも密度が高く、むしろ良好な部位である場合が多いです。是非、唯一無二の個性として愛ででいただければと思います。

今後とも宜しくお願い致します。

Hitoe® Fold - Liscio - 購入1ヶ月

正直使いやすいです。
長年長財布を愛用していた為、お札の曲がり具合やカード枚数など違和感はありましたがそれにも慣れてきてあのカードここまで使わなかったかーと改めてカードの必要性を考えるいい機会になりました。

財布自体コンパクトな為ポケットに入れていてもそんなに邪魔にならないので出かける際にも手荷物を少なくできるので利点だと思います。
一つ個人的に後悔しているのは今回購入した時の在庫状況等でColor: Blackを購入したのですが予想以上に使いやすかったのでCamelなどの明るい色のものにして経年変化を楽しめばよかったなと感じております。
ですが、これからBlackもどのように変化して行くの楽しみです。
あくまでも個人的な意見になりますので参考にしていただければと思います。

この度は、数ある商品の中からお買い求め頂き誠にありがとうございます。
お気に召していただき、大変光栄です。
Camelの深まる色艶も魅力ですが、黒も艶が増し、傷が目立ちにくい人気のカラーです。
末永くご愛用頂けますと幸いです。今後とも宜しくお願い致します。
