The Beautiful MNML Wallet Protects Your Cards from Fraud

Once upon a time, a bulging wallet was considered a sign of financial success. Today, the world’s wealthiest choose the slimmest wallet they can find. This trend for minimalism makes sense. You rarely need cash nowadays, and traditional wallets were not designed for the pockets of skinny jeans. The folks behind MNML recognize the needs of modern guys and gals. These hand-crafted wallets blend clever technology and stunning style. They even protect your cards from fraud.

Slim Suedey

Let us examine the average day of a typical young professional. To survive work and play, you probably need one credit card, your work pass, and maybe some ID. That’s exactly three cards. It begs the question: why do you need such an overweight wallet?

To save yourself some discomfort, try going MNML. This slimline cardholder measures just 0.28 inches thick, and boy does it make use of that small space. Thanks to clever design and premium leather, you get fast access to your cards, and outstanding quality.

In fact, the folks behind MNML reckon they have created the slimmest luxury leather wallet ever.

Big-Name Leather

There are two wallets that bear the MNML name. The standard, itty-bitty waist version holds between three and five cards. Meanwhile, the larger MNML+ bifold holds up to 11 cards. Despite the extra capacity, it is just half an inch thick.

Both models are made from the finest eco-friendly, vegetable-tanned leather from Wickett and Craig. For those unfamiliar with this name, the company has produced leather in the USA since 1867. Now there’s a slice of heritage for you.

From here, your wallet heads for the workshop of Ferruccio (Frank) and Jessica Sorichetti. This father-and-daughter team are incredible leather workers. In this case, they put all their knowledge into creating your cardholder or bifold.

Finally, the wallet meets Emmanuel Farre. This man has mastered patina — the art of dyeing leather. There are currently six basic colors to choose from, and three patina two-tone styles.

By the time Emmanuel has done his work, your wallet will look good enough to frame.

This Wallet Protects

Don’t think that MNML wallets are only about looks. Clever Bluetooth technology from TrackR helps you keep tabs on your cards at all times. For instance, you will be notified if your wallet ever gets left behind. You can even find your phone using the wallet.

In addition, the TrackR community is on your side. With three million users, chances are that someone will walk past your lost wallet. When they do, the app will tell you where to find your cards.

As an added bonus, MNML wallets block RFID signals. This means no-one can fraudulently take money from your contactless credit cards.
