It looks like a real leather, but no animals were harmed making this tear-resistant, water-resistant, expandable and recyclable wallet. Made from Tyvek® (think express mail envelopes), these cool wallets resist tearing because of thousands of interlocking plastic fibers spun in random patterns, giving them incredible strength. Because of the slim, lightweight and water resistant features, you can take these cool wallets anywhere. Slips nicely into a pocket. An excellent gift for the swashbuckling traveler in your life!
