Haydanhuya Wood Wallet Review
A Natual Inspired Wallet
Haydanhuya is known for its perfectly handcrafted wooden goods. As the brainchild of Gokhan Eryaman, a designer from Instanbul, the designs represent what is possible and can be achieved with nothing but a goal and the natural material that is wood. While selling anything from hand pages, purchases our focus is on their incredibly unique Wooden series of wallets.
The first thing to note about Haydanhuya’s wood wallet is the design of wallet. The wallet is styled like a cardholder or hard case wallet with a hollowed-out center for a max capacity of up to 8 credit/debit cards. These cards are held in place by a little leather flap that extends over the slot and clips on the other side. A large circular cutout in the wood (see images) is used as an additional way to access your cards by sliding cards out from the outside of the wallet.
Wood isn’t exactly a material that you first think of when it comes to wallets. Its main advantage is the fact it looks and feels absolutely fantastic. The unique texture from the grain of the wood is unique in each wallet and provides the most natural-looking wallet. Wood is also incredibly durable, won’t break easily, and will last a very long time with proper care.
Now we’ve talked about the positives of this wooden wallet there’s inherently going to be problems with a wallet made from such material. First of all, the wallet is fairly thick in size. Although its width and length are only slightly larger than a standard credit/debit card, its actual thickness comes in at a whopping height: 65mm x width: 97mm x depth: 14mm. This makes the wallet very bulky regardless of whether it’s stored in a front or back pocket and I found it very noticeable.
To conclude, I have mixed feelings about the Haydanhuya wooden wallet. The design is attractive and I’m a big fan of the aesthetics, look, and feel of wood. That being said, I don’t think the functionality of the wallet is good enough to warrant its purchase. Cards are clumsy to get out, the wallet is far too thick creating an uncomfortable feel and bulge in the pocket and it really has no room for any banknotes. Coming in at $75.00, I feel your money can be better spent elsewhere. For more information on Haydanhuya and its range of goods visit their official website using the link below.
