Terrence Kelleman's Mighty Wallet™ puts your money where your art is
Tough economic times are hitting consumers where it hurts - in their wallets. MOMAstore Japan and artist Terrence Kelleman
have the cure for your fiscal pain: the Art Lover Wallet
The "Art Lover Wallet" is one of a new series of eye-catching Mighty Wallets™
from acclaimed avant garde artist Kelleman's Dynomighty Design
. The expandable wallets are crafted from super-strong yet comfortably light Tyvek® plastic - the same stuff that's used to make those fiendishly unrippable Express Mail envelops but in a thicker grade. Maybe the Fed should consider making actual greenbacks from Tyvek®, considering the fact that paper banknotes have short lives in circulation and are constantly needing to be replaced.
The Mighty Wallet™ comes in a range of designs that include Air Mail
, Dot Matrix Pi
, Shredder Paper
, 3 Ring Binder
themes. Kelleman has even reproduced his old embossed leather wallet originally given to him by his grandfather and called it "My Old Wallet"
. Each one costs between $15 and $30, and can be recycled as a Grade 2 plastic when they eventually wear out.
The Mighty Wallet™ is a practical design, opening to reveal a pair of matched interior pockets for cash, receipts and tickets. Two card pockets keep your credit & debit cards secured while a couple of business card pockets store those essentials within easy reach.
You can get your very own "Art Lover Wallet" or any other Mighty Wallet™
from the MOMAstore
in Japan or direct from the Dynomighty Design
website. It's a great idea for those who don't just want to invest money in art, but who want to SAVE
money in it. (Update
