Vegan Wallets for Men & Women: A Buyer’s Guide

Not so long ago you’d have a very tough time finding nice looking and durable vegan wallets. Most quality wallets were made of leather, and vegan wallets tended to fall apart within months. That is fortunately no longer the case. A number of companies churn out stylish and durable vegan wallets. You’ll therefore have no trouble finding a good one in whatever style you desire.

Vegan wallets are constructed from a variety of materials. Some use advanced synthetic fabrics that beat leather in every possible way. Of course, you can also buy old-school 1970s nylon wallets with Velcro closures.

Men’s Vegan Wallets

Let’s begin with what’s arguably the best choice. The finest men’s vegan wallet in existence may well be the SlimFold MICRO Soft Shell. This is the first wallet that beats the pants off high-end leather wallets in every possible criteria, including looks and durability. The material looks like gorgeous black suede, but it’s a vegan product that is much more costly to produce. SlimFold wallets are waterproof, far thinner than typical leather wallets, and yet much more durable. These wallets are beautifully designed and crafted. A friend gave me one eighteen months ago, and it still looks brand new.

Hemp wallets are also worth considering. Rugged looking and ultra-durable, they’re perfect for outdoorsy guys. Hempy’s wallets are a terrific choice—comparably priced to other premium hemp wallets, they’re made in the United States and they wear like iron. Their bi-fold style is a great-looking classic men’s wallet.

Dynomighty makes super cheap wallets from an unlikely material—Tyvek.  Paper-thin yet durable, Tyvek is the film used during construction to wrap the insulation of houses.  Amazon.com carries Dynomighty wallets in dozens of eye-catching designs featuring imagery that ranges from subway maps to bubble gum wrappers.

Women’s Wallets

Designed for the purse rather than the pocket, there are a variety of women’s wallets on the market at every price point. Matt & Nat occupies the high end of the market, and their entire product line is vegan. Amazon.com carries Matt & Nat in a wide variety of styles.
