Hitoe® Fold - Liscio


Small thin wallet

I want to go out without any clothes on my hands! To fulfill this desire, we created Hitoe®, a thin wallet in which cards and coins do not overlap. The Hitoe® Fold is the evolution of the Hitoe® series, which pursues not only thin wallets but also small wallets.
The ultimate simplicity of design, smooth and comfortable use, and ample storage capacity are the ideals we have pursued and creatively designed for the cashless era.

Hitoe® structure" stands out for its thinness

Wallets become thicker because cards and coins overlap. The Hitoe® structure solves this problem. It achieves a thin wallet without overlapping cards and coins.
The maximum capacity is

10 banknotes, 20 coins, and 7 cards.

Even with a full capacity, it is overwhelmingly thin.

Design Attention

Pursuit of thin wallets

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

The leather is thick enough, and the texture, such as tension and firmness, is also important.

薄い財布 - Hitoe Fold Liscio Thinness without waste

Long and beautiful use.

The seam allowance is as small as possible, and the design is resistant to losing its shape.
In addition, most problems with wallets are caused by hardware and sewing. No hardware is used at all, and there are only four seams.
Corners and folded parts, which are prone to damage, are made of overlapping outer and inner leather to enhance durability.
It is a simple and sturdy construction that can be used beautifully for a long time.

Beautiful details

Precise and delicate stitching, polished floor (back side of leather), transparently polished koba (cross-section of leather) that reveals the overlapping layers of leather, and fine lines (nenpiki) placed around the edges with a hot iron.
Every detail of the product is designed for beauty.

Designed according to the laws of nature

Why is the Golden Ratio so beautiful?"
The golden ratio 1:1.62 is the aspect ratio of a rectangle consisting of a spiral of squares with the Fibonacci sequence ( 1 2 3 5 8 13 21...) as one side. (Figure below)
And the Fibonacci sequence is hidden everywhere in nature. Tree branches, petal counts, 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.
Deeply related to nature and the order of life, therefore, the golden ratio based on the Fibonacci sequence also tugs at the heartstrings.
It is not the golden ratio that is important. It is the proportions from the smallest detail to the whole that make the Fibonacci sequence work to create a well-rounded design that resonates with the heart.

Six well-thought-out usability features

It is not just a thin wallet. We have also pursued comfort of use so that each operation can be completed with the fewest possible actions.

1 New concept of using the card to be stored as a clasp

Wehave devised an "inner hook (patent pending) " that hooks onto the card to be stored, rather than outside the wallet, anduses the card itself as part of the clasp. It is a smart leather hook that fits inside the wallet and is not shown on the front.

It not only serves as a clasp for the wallet, but also prevents cards from falling out and allows for speedy opening and closing.

2 Clip it with leather, and that's it.

The inner hook gives the bag a flat appearance that can only be clipped with leather. No hardware, flap, or other unnecessary items protrude, so there is no snagging in the pocket.

正面 - HITOE FOLD LISCIO No hardware at all, just leather.

3 Quickly opens and closes in a "U" shape

By bending the border between the card and the coin in a "wiggle" motion, the inner hook on the card is easily released. With this single action, coins, bills, and cards can all be accessed for quick checkout.

開き方 - Hitoe Fold liscio Smoothly opens and closes by bending it in a "crisscross" shape.
The trick is to bend the inner hook in a "wiggle" so that it does not touch the inner hook.

4 Keep the banknote in place

Just insert bills without folding them. High visibility and easy to remove.

Smoothly insert and remove bills without touching the bill holder.

5 Cards are smooth

Fingers go deep into the back of the card for smooth card insertion and removal.

Smooth in and out

Extra cards are held in the bill holder to prevent stretching of the leather in the card pocket. It does not interfere with the opening and closing of the wallet.

6 Shallow coin pocket

A shallow coin pocket allows you to quickly find and quickly remove the coins you need. There is no need to worry about coins spilling out when the wallet is closed; there is plenty of room for 999 yen (15 coins).

Once the leather is acclimated, there is no spillage during use.

The Hitoe® Fold series has received national and international recognition with numerous records and awards.
In particular, the Hitoe® Fold Aria has won 10 awards, including the "iF Design Award" and "Red Dot".

Difference 5: Feel of use
Depending on the presence or absence of stitching on the side of the bill holder, the Hitoe Fold may feel a little scratchy when inserting or removing banknotes 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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.
