X-Men Bi-fold Wallet Handmade from Up-cycled Bike Tubes
An ultra-thin, earth-friendly wallet made from a recycled bicycle tube and hand selected, laminated X-Men comic book. Fit your credit cards, business cards, and cash comfortably in the thinnest wallet in all the land! Even on the crease it measures less than 3 cm in thickness, without anything in it. (5 cm with 8 credit cards stuffed in.)
!!!!!!!!!First 2 photos are the actual wallet that is for sale. The others use a plain wallet as examples!!!!!!!!!
The first photo shows the two front, inside pockets that are actual laminated comics, hand selected by me. The second photo shows the actual back side of the comic wallet for sale here. A PLAIN WALLET IS PICTURED TO SHOW WHAT IT WOULD LOOK LIKE WITH CARDS AND MONEY IN IT.
****** No valuable comics were harmed in the making of these wallets. Only damaged or unwanted books have been cut up for the creations you see here.******
Inner tubes are a unique material and an eco-friendly alternative to leather. One of the best things about the rubber is that it grips, so the wallet won't slide out of your pocket.
22cm x 8cm (8 1/2"x3 1/8")
****** Every comic wallet is one-of-a-kind and COMPLETELY unique. Feel free to message me for pictures of more Mario Brothers wallets *****
I work with a local tire and bike shops to rescue their inner tubes from the landfill. I scrub each inner tube with earth-friendly solvents (no easy task!), then hand cut each to the wallet's exterior. The interior pockets are made from unwanted comic books that are carefully picked and cut individually and heat laminate. Then the wallets are sewn together in my studio, overlooking Haywood Road in West Asheville, North Carolina. The materials are strong and durable. The rubber is soft, pliable and the pockets are very sturdy and help the wallet keep its shape.
*****Each wallet is totally unique and one of a kind. Due to the fact that they are made from an up-cycled material they will be slight variations in the markings on the rubber. Sometimes there will a cool blue, yellow, or even sometimes purple stripe on the back of the wallet. Sometimes a bit of the stamp indicating the branding and size of the tube will appear on parts of the wallet. These are all fun indications that you are helping to recuse the planet from being littered with piles of unwanted tubes. ENJOY!!!
This wallet is one of a kind and can not be duplicated.
