    Fun fact

    In today's world, wallets recognized as small flat pouches, which we use to carry round cash, cards, and general monetary items. However, wallets were not always for such basic purposes. Back in the good old days (17th century), wallets were also used to carry dried meat, treasures and 'things not to be exposed'. Thankfully, we have progressed form these dark days.
