Tyvek wallet

Our favourite fabric material here is now a wallet material. But at US$20-30 each? What would the production of such be?

Its all in the printing and whatever art fee they are paying is. I believe those are die-cut and have been available for a long time. I have one of a similar design, and my wife has one. As long as you don't over fill them, they last quite a while, but once you overload them and the creases get stretched, they start to slide apart.
I prefer my wa-ben cuben fiber wallet, its starting to show some age at the seams, but its at least 4 years old at this point.

The guy I got mine from does regular production runs of the the wallet and a couple bag designs, so no crowd funding on this one. But certainly others have. Its an easy way to run a pre-order and get some coverage.
