NUNOUS Travel for Life Wallet // Moss Agate
This artifact was inspired by our desire to use Traveler's Notebook and Hobonichi Weeks in everyday life as well as our appreciation for The Superior Labor's incredible craftsmanship. This wallet can be used as a stand-alone artifact or can be incorporated in your Traveler's Notebook or Hobonichi Weeks seamlessly.
This Travel for Life Wallet is especially unique because of its material, NUNOUS. NUNOUS is an upcycled material made of leftover fabric, which is a byproduct of Japanese fabric manufacturing. The leftover fabric is compressed into a cube, then sliced into thin pieces creating the marble effect of the NUNOUS material.
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 pocket with a sturdy zipper and another hidden pocket underneath the pocket.
On the inside right panel, you will see our signature "Travel for Life" brass plate. Some of the brass plates are naturally patinaed even as brand new. All brass plates will patina over time as it gets exposed to oxygen, moisture, and other environmental elements. The leather will get softer and darker as it ages. 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!
