The other day I came across a handmade French card holder that held no more than three cards and that’s all it did. It costs a whopping $499. It blows the mind to see how much wallets can cost these days. Anything with a designer tag can start from a humble couple of hundred bucks and go all the way to a thousand and more. Now, there’s no taking away the premium build and the craftsmanship that are in these wallets. Their price is probably justified too. But honestly, how many of us are ready to drop a grand on a wallet? If you have that kind of money, wouldn't you rather get a new Macbook or shiny new flagship device? We would.

They need to be smart, sleek and quality made. Quality is not usually something that sits with ‘budget-friendly’ items but wait to discover the rare exceptions.
