There are a select few product categories in which aging can be a desirable thing, with fine wines and vintage automobiles among them, but a Pakistan-based design company by the name of Aurochs is now adding minimalist wallets to that list.
Among the company's offerings is the Aurochs Eclipse, a daily-use wallet crafted using full-grain vegetable-tanned leather that organically develops a patina over time starting from the edges, giving it a truly irreplicable vintage aesthetic. Handsome appearances aside, this wallet has a compact footprint but still offers enough room for all the cards and cash you need to go about your day, with a magnetic lip ensuring that loose change stays in place.
But this isn't a wallet that blindly prioritizes style and functionality above all else. The leather used in this premium minimalist wallet is sourced from tanneries that demonstrate zero tolerance towards mistreatment of animals, while Auroch's expert designers deploy optimized manufacturing processes to prevent undue wastage of leather.
For a price of only $69, you can get your hands on a wallet that is rich to the touch, elegant on the eye, comfortable in the pocket and doesn't weigh on your conscience. Wallets are among the few truly ubiquitous products that all of us use every day, making this a small price to pay for a product designed to deliver for the long haul.
