Nothing Fancy by Chieh, a designer hailing from Taiwan, is a set of minimal wallets and cases that have a decidedly geometric aesthetic. From triangles to rectangles, the wallets were inspired by a bundle of banknotes held together by a rubber band. Considering that, according to the designer, "The mission was to create a design with the minimal amount of materials, simplifying the object to its basic function," it inspiration behind them should come as no surprise.

Created using a single piece of dyed leather, Nothing Fancy by Chieh does not feature any stitching. The collection is comprised of a basic wallet, coin case, an iPhone holder and a passport holder. Perfect for the constant traveller, Nothing Fancy by Chieh simplifies these necessary items to make the journey easier and more convenient.
