Springwise: There are many occasions in life in
which carrying a wallet or purse is inconvenient, and yet there are also
very few alternatives. Rather than storing money and keys in a shoe or —
heaven forbid — an undergarment, San Francisco-based Rogiu LLC has come
up with a much more stylish solution: bracelets and wristbands with a
wallet hidden inside.
Launched earlier this year, Wallets2wear
are available in numerous styles for both women and men, including a
variety of fabric and beaded designs as well as watch-based and formal
alternatives featuring silver beads or pearls. Regardless of the style,
the inner side of each elasticized or Velcro-closed bracelet features a
pouch capable of accommodating a credit card, ID, key, cash or even
lipstick. Prices range from USD 12 for a sports wrist wallet to USD 150
for a freshwater pearl or sterling formal version.
