The Mighty Wallet™ is tear-resistant, water-resistant, expandable and, most importantly, recyclable.

Made from Tyvek® (think express mail envelopes), the Mighty Wallet™ resists tearing because of thousands of interlocking plastic fibers spun in random patterns giving the wallet incredible strength.

The ingenious origami design reinforces that strength by using a single folded stitch less construction allowing the wallet to gradually expand and adapt to meet your own personal storage needs. The Mighty Wallet™ will expand right before your eyes.

Because of the slim, lightweight and water resistant features, you can take your Mighty Wallet™ anywhere. It makes a great “night out” wallet for a slender silhouette and the writable surface conveniently acts as a quick note pad on the go.

In time, the Mighty Wallet™ will gradually soften and patina but, even after years of wear, it will still offer surprise and solicit intrigue.

Other key features include 2 interior pockets, 2 inward facing credit card pockets (hold approx 16 cards) and 2 quick access business card pockets.

HempStar creates durable, eco friendly wallets made from hemp, a sustainable material that’s good for you and even better for the animals.  Choosing a leather-free wallet is an important step in transitioning into (or maintaining) a vegan lifestyle. Skipping the skin and using an alternative fabric doesn’t mean you have to forego style, functionality or durability.  These simple biker wallets are a new addition to our store and could be used by men and women alike.

The HempStar Blank Vegan Biker Wallet is available in black or natural hemp and features a double snap closure which opens to a nylon interior.  There’s a velcro pocket perfect for change or if you like to carry a whole stack of cards you could fit a substantial amount in here!  Also great for a lip balm or two.  There is a clear ID window and 2 separate slots for credit cards (again you can fit multiple cards in each slot).  There are 3 cash slots, one behind the coin pouch and two under the ID window.  A small centrally located grommet allows to attach the optional wallet chain.  The HempStar Silver Wallet Chain has an “O” ring and a clasp to keep your wallet secure when you’re on the go.

We really love that Dynomighty wallets are vegan friendly, eco friendly and available in lots of amazing designs!  We’ve just added 10 new styles to the site including “Underground” a map of the London subway system, “PBJ” complete with swirled condiments on the inside and “Renews” a tribute to Farmer’s Markets & recycling!

Each of these vegan wallets has 2 interior pockets, 2 inward facing credit card pockets (which hold approximately 16 cards) and 2 quick access business card pockets.  And for just $15 each you may want to get a few.  Their unique designs make them perfect for gift giving too.

Mighty Wallets are made from a single sheet of tyvek “paper” and folded, origami style, into a wallet design.  You may be wondering how a piece of paper can possibly last longer than a week as wallet.  Tyvek is a super strong material (that also happens to be water-proof) and is made from thousands of interlocking strands of plastic fibers.  It has the feel of paper but the durability of any other wallet.
