EDC - DIY Wallet

It’s kinda funny for a guy with no money, to buy a kit to make a wallet for cards or money, but it’s a cool idea nonetheless.

But don’t have any need for the magnetic clip (which is strong as shit)… But it’s reasonably cheap and good quality, just don’t like grabbing my wallet and my keys going flying…

Come up with a good design, a big piece of leather is around 60 bucks, finished… make a decent wallet and sell for 30 bucks a piece… So say you can make 10 wallets out of piece of finsihed… that’s 300 and you’ve made decent product. If you need tools I’ve seen basic kits with threading and wax for 100… After you sold half you’re only making profit… After your first investment of 210 dollars you have another 90 for materials and pocket 30, then you’re always making money with slight overhead fees.

The other way around ofc is go to Alibaba and buy the same stuff for 5 bucks with shipping included.

But then you can’t call it Artisan Leather, made with dead american animals… They’d probably rub china men on it before they shipped it over

Years and years ago my grandad made me a wallet while in the hospital after a heart attack. I was around 5 or 6 at the time so it was a lot of doobies ago. I still have that leather wallet and tho i dont use it anymore it is a treasure to me.

Ive got a cousin that makes wallets out of duct tape, they sound cheap but they are very durable and can be fixed, with more duct tape of course.

Very cool man. I like it. I use a rubber band but this looks much better.
