Dynomighty wallet/Gary Taxali


I collaborated with Dynomighty Wallets in 2010 with four designs  for artist designed tyvek wallets.  The wallets is put together in an origami style.  There are other company that do the same thing such as Paperwallet, Slimfold Wallet and others.

Gary Taxali was the first artist to collaborate with the brand.   Since then, they have added close to 800 artists to their roster in a threadless style which in this author’s opinion dilutes the exclusivity nature of artist collaborations.      Their product is attractive because it is eco-friendly and water resistant.  It is made out of Tyvek® (by Dupont).  Although it looks like paper, it is not paper.  It is a “non woven mesh of 100% high-density polytheylene fibres”.  It’s been used for packaging, apparel, construction, air cargo covers and others.

Tyvek® was discovered in 1955 and it is a sheet product that is stronger than paper and very durable.  It is lightweight, durable, recyclable (made from 100% HDPE with no fillers and binders) , feels like paper, tear-resistant, absorbs little water and made out of environmentally friendly materials that has a multitude of uses.  Unlike cardboard and LDPE, it reduces CO2 emissions and ozone layer depletion.
