Mywalit Purses & Wallets

Category: Hall of Fame

Mywalit wallets and purses, are the colourful soft ones. The colours cause smiles, and the softness of the leather leads to furtive stroking. They're beautiful. The cleverness of the Mywalit colour palette easily reflects a wearer's personality whilst looking smart with a variety of outfits for a range of occasions. The palette is based on colour therapy principles to make the user feel good. The colours are achieved by intensive drum drying so they aren't just surface deep. They're fade resistant and much less embarrassed by scratches and stains.

These wallets are notable for their feel ... as well as their look. The colour dyeing process adds much to the softness and suppleness of the Mywalit Japanese leather, but the use of nappa leather makes them irresistible. Nappa is the hard-to-obtain belly leather which hasn't been subject to weathering. Think baby's bottom.

The Mywalit company was founded by Englishman Chris Howell in Lucca, Tuscany in 2005. He'd previously built up the Tula leather goods company... and sold it with the aim of a forty year retirement. 

But Mr Howell just couldn't resist a comeback. Like the Blues Brothers, he put the band back together in search of the perfect purse. For him that meant starting with one of the world's super premium leather manufacturers in Thailand (other clients being Oroton and Dunhill), and ensuring that all other elements of a Mywalit followed suit. In contemporary, practical styling - right down to the pen included with many of the styles. These wallets are now at the Museum of Modern Art, New York - they're Art you can use. And you can get them in Australia too
