If you are in the market for somewhere to keep your travel essentials, you could do worse than the Z Wallet.


The innovative design makes the most of the available space and eliminates unnecessary volume. Inspired by origami, each of the items in the range are made by folding a single piece of paper.


Use the different sections of the wallet to store currency, travel documents or your smartphone. The larger travel case offers more space, while the folder is great for those that need to transport documents without folding them.



Each of the items in the Z range is made using an eco-friendly, proprietary blend of cellulose fiber. It may feel like paper, but it is water- and tear-resistant. The environmental impact of the product is further reduced through the use of soy ink, adding to Z range’s eco credentials and making it an attractive option for vegans.


The Z collection is fixed shut with a high-powered magnet and the result is a charmingly designed travel wallet. A successful Kickstarter campaign raised $17,855 and the items are now available to order.


If you’re concerned about the ethical implications of leather travel wallets, opt for an item from the Z collection to put your mind at rest.

Review: Norton Simon Museum

Pasadena, California, is home to plenty of places to experience great art, but none so impressive as Norton Simon Museum. Nestled in an enclave of greenery along the city's famed Colorado Boulevard, this museum offers a peaceful retreat from the bustle of the city outside for connoisseurs to experience the work of some of the world's most famous artists.
