New Item: Bi-fold Wallet!

I'm stoked to introduce this smaller companion to the popular Tri-fold wallet! Its compact profile is
more conducive to a compact and active lifestyle.

Black Ship Crafts: BI-Fold No Sew Wallet on

Some critiques of the tri-fold led me to make a more compact wallet that was more 'packable,' easy to tuck in your jersey or frame bag for short trips or commutes. It is also a rivet-only wallet, meaning no hand sewn seams.

Last year I made a prototype, and after using it for over 6 months, I decided that it is ready to launch.

Water resistant, made with the best quality upcycled bike inner tubes.

-Silver OR Black & Gold profile
-Accommodates up to 9x20 centimeter bills, receipts, notes, etc.
-Several pockets to keep your bills and cards in
-Double Heavy-Duty Snaps to keep your precious items secured.
-Large Heavy-Duty Grommet - Keep it by your side with a clip to the D-Ring on your bike tube belt! No more losing it in the couch cushions or behind seats!
-Compact for easy packability

New Year, New Item: Oak Leaf Earrings

Our first New Item for 2014!
   Oak trees have always inspired me to grow, and to respect both the wise and old, as well as the young and nimble in all walks of life. An old friend that passed had a tattoo of gracefully falling white oak leaves, and the image is forever ingrained in me as a peaceful one.
   These Oak Leaf Earrings will gracefully hang from your lobes, cut from a bike tube that once rolled someone along their way.
  Leave a note if you want a specific clasp. Cheers! Happy New Year!
