The radio frequency chips used in that card which allow data to be transferred by proximity rather than direct contact can be found on nearly every credit card and bank card now, as well as any US passport issued in the last 6 years.
Unfortunately RFID chips allow tech savvy thieves to steal your identity, without ever laying a hand on your wallet.
In response to this new threat, designer Stewart/Stand developed a line of wallets made from woven stainless steel, which prevent the transfer of information. Originally a mens line, Stewart/Stand has recently branched out and started making sleek wallets and clutches for women as well.
Don't be deceived by the presence of metal, this wallet is soft and lightweight. It is also highly touchable. I love running my fingers over the textured stainless steel patten.
Stewart/Stand wallets are also eco-conscious, made with 85% post consumer recycled stainless steel.
An elegant pairing of stainless steel fabric and Italian leather, protection from identity theft never looked better. (And if you don't believe me, just check out the competition.) If leather isn't your thing, there are vegan options made with Italian nylon as well.
Stewart/Stand provided me with this wallet for the purpose of this post, my views and opinions are my own.
