In an increasingly cashless age, the classic bifold wallet is making less and less sense. It encourages accumulation of clutter, which rarely gets organised or thrown away. This usually leads to a wallet that looks and feels like a brick in your pocket. Do you really need all this clutter?
The Attenuo wallet encourages the opposite. Receipts from unimportant purchases will get refused, or quickly discarded. It will forever be a clean, clutter free wallet that glides effortlessly in and out of you pocket and sits unnoticed. The single piece aluminium construction will last for generations. Removing your payment card is a swift, effortless motion. It is guided back in place by the cut-out design and secured with a satisfying click.
The Attenuo wallet originated in 2016 after a trip to Bali. I lost my traditional bi-fold wallet and as a temporary solution used an elastic band to secure my remaining cards and notes together. It made me completely rethink what you need from a wallet. The temptation to horde receipts was no longer there. Clutter was by necessity instantly removed. The result was carrying only what you needed, which turns out, isn’t a whole lot.
On my return to the UK I began designing a wallet to suit my needs, based on these principle of carrying only what you need. I turned a sketch into a 3D model, and eventually into a 3D printed prototype. Having a background in mechanical engineering meant I naturally gravitated towards metal parts and CNC machining. Aluminium was the perfect material. After many months of talking with manufacturers I finally had a sample that was what I had wanted. I high quality CNC machined wallet that felt slim, light and robust.
Would this wallet suit me?
If you already use similar products such as a cash clip, card wallet, credit card holder or minimal wallets and don't have much use for coins in your life, then this product is for you.
If you still use typical bi-fold/tri-fold style leather wallets, then making the switch to a minimalist wallet for daily use is personal preference. If you rely heavily on paying with cash and coins, then perhaps this product isn't right for you.
If you are looking for something for occasional use with suit jackets/formal wear where a bulky wallet and coins are unsightly and unnecessary, then this is perfect for you.

The Attenuo wallet is able to hold notes and cards, but not coins.
