Artist's statement:

I designed this product to help reassure people about the whereabouts of their wallet. The idea came about when I studied several people tapping their pockets to reassure themselves that their wallet was still present. I used texture on the wallet so that when taken unlawfully and when walking, the wallet could be felt by its owner. Full process available at
