Let's kick things off with one of the most sustainable wallets we've come across: Oliver Co.'s RFID protected Compact Wallet, which just so happens to be vegan. Ethically crafted using premium smooth apple leather – a vegan bio-material made using apple waste – and lined with recycled polyester microfibre 'suede', it's a purchase you can feel good about.
Handcrafted in Normandy from full grain Italian leather, this simple cardholder showcases French leather goods label Allen St.'s commitment to craftsmanship. For an extra personal touch, opt for free customisation in gold leaf, silver or hot embossing.
Escuyer's leather wallet is designed in Belgium and made in Portugal using vegetable tanned leather from a small Tuscan factory. It's compact yet capable: with six card slots for up to 12 cards as well as a bill sleeve, it's the ultimate everyday wallet for those who prefer to travel light.
Globe-Trotter is renowned for its luxury luggage, but the British heritage brand also makes an impressive line of accessories. Case in point: this elegant corner zip wallet, which is handcrafted in England from textured pebbled bull leather and features sturdy brass hardware and an understated gold logo. It's pared back perfection.
This super sleek wallet from Danish label Royal RepubliQ is made from buffalo leather, a material that's three times thicker than cow leather and renowned for its durability. Aesthetic details are kept to a minimum to allow for the quality of craftsmanship to shine through. Choose from three handsome and versatile colours: Black, Cognac or Brown.
Dutch brand Unrecorded has made a name for itself as a go-to for clothing and accessories that are sustainably made and minimalist in style. Both of those things can be said for this compact corner zip wallet, which is made from 100% Italian vegetable tanned leather with a highly durable Excella metal zipper. To demonstrate its commitment to transparency, Unrecorded has broken down the costs of its production so you know exactly what you're paying for.
Mismo's bags and accessories ooze elegance, and this card wallet is no different. Small yet spacious, it has a large internal compartment for notes, receipts and coins, with slots on the outside for cards. A leather gusset underlay prevents the wallet from opening more than 90 degrees, ensuring everything stays together.
Spanish label Café Leather specialises in leather products that are made to last. This wallet is exactly that. Handcrafted from premium vegetable tanned leather, it's designed to age beautifully over time, creating a unique patina. Its understated aesthetic means it will never go out of style.
This Vachetta leather wallet from Travelteq may look slim, but its accordion pocket can hold over 20 cards, notes and coins. In Travelteq's innovative style, it boasts RFID blocking lining that offers full protection against skimming. Add a Travelteq Tracker Card to ensure you never lose it.
British accessories brand Campbell Cole designs some of the best minimalist wallets we've come across, always with an emphasis on quality of construction over extraneous aesthetic detailing. The Simple Slim Wallet will keep all your essentials together whilst sprucing up your style.
