Card Holders Are Our New Favorite Obsession

Let’s dive into the world of small leather goods, better known as SLGs. Small leather goods can be anything from wallets, coin purses, card holders, bag straps, or passport covers. As we’ve seen with the mini bag trend and the bag charm craze, anything small and adorable is usually a hot seller. The new mini item that seems to be making waves as of late is the good-and-trusted card holder.

Let us explain why card holders are our new favorite obsession….

If you’re not an SLG fanatic, you may be wondering: Does a card holder beat a regular wallet? Sure, maybe nothing can truly replace your staple wallet that holds your whole life together, but card holders are really useful accessories. Here are 5 reasons why you should consider adding a card holder to your collection:

#1 They can fit in any bag.
As bags keep getting tinier and tinier, you might have a hard time cramming even the smallest wallet into a mini bag. Card holders are compact enough to fit into mini bags, and can be easily exchanged between your bigger, everyday bag to a smaller evening bag or clutch.

#2 Card holders simply cut the bulk.
If you usually don’t carry cash or coins, you may be better off with a card holder anyway. Card holders can accommodate the necessities  like your credit cards and IDs without taking up too much room in your bag.

#3 They are perfect for anyone craving extra organization.
If you can’t bear to forgo your wallet, you can still carry a wallet AND card holder in the same bag. Use your wallet for cash, coins, and less used cards, and place your most frequently used cards in a card holder for an easy grab-and-go option.

#4 Card holders are affordable and great entry-level purchases.
Most card holders are usually under $500. While they are still expensive investments considering their size, card holders can be a great way to test the waters with a new designer brand without breaking the bank too much.

#5 They also make great gifts!
Since card holders are so practical, they are great buys for yourself or anyone special in your life. Since they come in so many different colors, leathers, and styles, anyone can find a card holder that fits their personality.
