This artifact was inspired by our desire to use Traveler's Notebook in everyday life as well as our appreciation for The Superior Labor's incredible craftsmanship. The wallet can be used as a stand-alone artifact or can be incorporated in your Traveler's Notebook seamlessly.
The left panel features 3 credit card size pockets and one large pocket which is great for keeping your cash or receipt. The right panel comes with a leather pocket with a sturdy zipper and another hidden pocket underneath the leather pocket. On the leather, you will see our signature "Travel for Life" brass plate. Canvas will become softer and leather will get caramelized as they age. I hope you enjoy witnessing the wallet grow with you over time.
All materials are carefully sourced in Japan and they are made in The Superior Labor maker's studio in Okayama prefecture where they turned an old elementary school into a unique workshop space. You can check out more photos of how their Engineer Shoulder Bag looks over time on our blog post: [Metamorphosis] The Superior Labor Shoulder Bag / new vs. + 2yrs.
Our hope is whenever you open this wallet, it will be a reminder to keep traveling and have adventures in life!
