The Minimalist, Koa Wood Wallet w/ Money Clip (Tapa Design)

When roaming the islands, we like to travel light.  Preferably board shorts, slippers and that's about it...less than that and we tend to get the stink-eye. I digress. Unfortunately, the need has arisen for something to carry the mounds of cards and cash required to navigate this modern jungle. Born out of necessity, our minimalist wallets carry everything you could need with the minimal esthetic we love.  

- Elastic stretch sides to accommodate 1-12 cards

- Koa and opposing carbon fiber (w/ money clip) sides

-RFID blocking for the ultimate in protection

Consider it your personal can carry so much while remaining slim. The elastic sides expand to hold over 12 cards and the clip can hold more than enough cash. The only minimalist attribute is it's overall footprint.

If you've never used a small wallet like this, it allows you to conveneintly carry in the front pocket which is much less likely to be picked.  Oh, did we mention...the most amazing curly grain Koa wood from the Big Island?...hand made in Honolulu? #yourwelcome #shouldhavenameditthesherpawallet

Sherpa like ability with minimal it Simplified Efficiency.

An elegant solution...Everything in its place and a place for everything.  If it doesn't fit, you probably don't need it. Space for 12 cards.

Devil's in the Details...and we've got details

Expertly crafted with attention to the details...countersunk screws, aluminum frame, beveled edge for easy card insertion...                  no need to make a deal with the devil...we're a lot easier to deal with.

hand made...did we mention that bit of ridiculousness

A ton of work goes into getting you the perfect's the rundown...I hand pick every piece of Koa for amazing grain patterns which I then hand sand, finish with water-based poly, laser cut, sip a beer, etch a design, apply ink and assemble. Like I said, pretty much ridiculousness...but it makes a super unique wallet.

Love the wood wallet

I could not be happier with this wallet. Perfect for the person that carries few items in their wallet. This is the second purchase I have had with Pono Woodworks in the past 6 months, and their communication and customer service are second to none. Mahalo!

Beautiful & Functional

This slim wallet is perfect for being on the go with my three boys. I appreciate how beautiful it is and the quality it is made with yet the functionality wins my heart. Knowing I can fit the essentials in The Minimalist to grab and go without a second thought. The ordering process was a breeze too.

Great Quality/Value

I received my wallet a couple of weeks ago and love it! I doubt I will ever go back to a traditional wallet. The woodwork is classy and the carbon fiber on the back also makes it modern looking. I chose this one because I wanted the flexibility to have more than a few cards on me at any given time.
