TGIF Shopping: Distil Union

With the New Year upon us, we are plagued with empty promises to go to the gym and change our habits. But why not start small? For example lose that bulky wallet and simplify what’s in your pocket. Distil Union’s Wally line does just this by carrying all your cash in half the wallet. Wally is available as a super-slim wallet (Wally Bifold) or as a wallet compatible with an iPhone (Wally Case).

Founded in 2011 by Lindsay Windham and Nate Justiss, Distil Union has been creating solutions to everyday issues (Their Snooze iPhone dock is genius). One founder worked at Philips Electronics, the other at Digital Lifestyle Outfitters, and both have spent many hours fidgeting with products. Because of this their product line is a great mix of functionality and great materials, and each one has a story behind it.

Justiss said they weren’t completely happy with the solutions out there for minimalist wallets and set out to craft something that revisited the architecture of the wallet.

“We rethought that form by throwing out assumptions and came up a solution we love because these wallets are thinner and even more useful. By starting from scratch we were able to take away material and add functionality,” Justiss said.  “We use Argentinian full-grain leather that is tanned to be especially strong and supple. This allows your wallet to conform easily to your particular card and bill assortment.”

As for the Wally:

Wally Case – For those of you looking to really simplify with an all-in-one approach, the Wally Case combines your iPhone with a minimal leather pocket. The case secures up to 4 cards and cash on the back of your iPhone. And the only downside to this is if you lose it you lose everything. But we’ll hope that doesn’t happen. These will run you about $50 in multiple case/leather color combinations for iPhone 5/5S and iPhone 6.

Wally Bifold – The Bifold cuts your carry size up to half and it fits about 12 cards and cash inside. Pull-tabs and slick pockets on each side give you access to your cards without opening to reveal any cheese. Inside the Bifold interior money clips holds your cash. They are available in black and brown for $59.99.

Distil Union also carries some other creative iPhone/wallet combos, so be sure to keep up with these designers. They are going places.
