Why This Product?
A Cabal Crafted take on the classic bifold. The wallet organizes cards using the natural visual way that humans read: Top to bottom. Front to back. A slight curvature in the front pockets lets you fan the cards out to bypass the time wasted in “digging” for cards.
No More Visual Clutter
Humans tend to read from top down, and from front to back. This intuitive visual hierarchy guides the Dixon wallet. Your most used cards are visually prominent, and the first thing you’ll see upon opening the wallet. The least used cards, are hidden – but not invisible. A discrete visual cue, of the corner is a reference for where they are when needed.
No More Digging
Curvature in the front pockets suggest a fanning out of one’s cards (similar to the way multiple cards are held in poker) allowing the user to easily choose a card, without removing any cards.
No More Worry
The common bifold wallet orients its pockets horizontally. Cards are exposed at the top, and susceptible to falling out in the pocket. Dixon addresses this by orienting the pockets vertically. Cards face inward, and combat the worry of cards falling out.
Made using no electricity at every stage of the process, and assembled with no automation by using only manual proceses.
Materials / Care
Cabal Crafted uses materials that value change and maturity. The hope is that your relationship to the object changes into a relationship with a faithful life companion.
The leathers used by Cabal Crafted are all tanned with vegetable matter. Because of this - the leather will age with exposure to oils, sunlight, the elements and according to the user's own habits. Cabal Crafted recommends Skidmore's leather cream to clean, condition and protect the leather. Your unique cut of leather and its grain will wear from sunlight, oils and elements. This turns the piece from "an" object, into "your" object.
The 100% cotton canvas Cabal Crafted uses is free of environmentally harmful formic acids, thermosets, or thermoplastics. Because the canvas fibers are drenched in the wax instead of having only a top coat, the canvas is easily cleanable with a clean horse-hair brush.
Design as a way of life
What we practice becomes our habit. If we practice accummulating meaningless 'stuff' and make a habit of discarding the things that surround us, then it's no surprise that we throw away other humans and relationships: it has become our habit as a culture. Cabal Crafted is interested in cultivating a diferent culture, one where what we value is not discarded but repaired.
