If you've ever wondered why there are so many wallets on Kickstarter, they've published an article on that.
Wallets are a perennial around here: one of a handful of products you’ll consistently see at least two or three of on the site, well on their way to being funded, any time you look. Minimalist wallets, leather billfolds, elastic card-holders, carbon-fiber money clips, CNC-machined metal wallets, wallets made out of everything from superlight Tyvek to fabric from vintage men’s ties. (The ties were Laura Skelton’s idea: her Jetsam wallet was the first ever funded on Kickstarter.) There are enough wallets that while we were working on this article, Businessweek called us up to ask about them, and published this.
FWIW, I'm still very happy with my MoneyClamp clip/wallet.
