Find the right cork wallet
You use it every day and take it with you everywhere. You protect it like the apple of your eye, because the contents are - not only for you - of enormous value. It has to be resistant, practical and elegant at the same time. A separation is often delayed as long as possible and only extremely rarely you entrust it to another person. We are talking about the most important commodity of our time: the purse.
So that you also find the right wallet for you with us, we have designed different models for different needs. Whether it's a wallet for everyday use, a practical wallet for traveling or a noble wallet in a unique design - in the Simaru store you will find a wide selection and colorful variety of wallets. Have fun with your search!
Small & big purse
From small mini purses to compact coin purses to elongated purses - at Simaru you will find all sizes. Do you want a handy men's wallet that fits in the back pocket of your pants or a slightly larger women's wallet that is small enough for your handbag? Click through and find your perfect size!
Slim Wallets: Flat & Lightweight Wallets
For many customers, weight plays an important role in choosing the right gel pouch. Our flat and particularly lightweight models are real space wonders and offer enough room for bills, cards and IDs.
Cross & landscape - or rather portrait format
You are looking for a wallet with format? Then Simaru is the right choice for you! While women often appreciate the landscape format, men often go for the portrait format. You like it rather extravagantly elegant? Maybe you wear a suit and jacket rather than jeans and shorts for professional reasons? Then a portrait wallet is more for you, because it fits better in the inside pocket of the jacket. There, the wallet can be easily stored on edge and your bills & vouchers can not slip out.
Landscape format wallets are among the classics among men. The rather minimalist jeans wearer finds here the perfect format to store bifold but also somewhat more voluminous trifold wallets safely and always quickly at hand in the back pocket.
Security first: RFID protection
Data protection is becoming an increasingly important aspect in all our lives and should also be considered when buying a new wallet. To protect your personal data on credit cards, health cards and ID cards from theft, you can find various wallets with RFID (radio-frequency identification) and NFC (near field communication) protection. Your security is important to us, so protect your data!
Coin purses, card cases & credit card slots.
Tastes & needs are varied and so are the different purse variations: Coin purse with Viennese box, credit card case, waiter's purse, children's purse - there are at least as many types of purses as there are spellings for the word purse. That's why before you buy a purse, you should think carefully about when, where, and what you'll need it for. Are you more of a cash person or do you pay almost exclusively by card? Do you need a wallet with a coin pocket or a wallet with card slots? Do you have a lot of bonus cards or membership cards? Do you collect receipts like Instagram followers and always carry a wad of bills? Important questions that can help you choose the right wallet.
Push button & Zipper
All Simaru wallets are quick & easy to open and close. You have the choice between wallets with push button and wallets with zipper or both! For our high-quality purses we use only very sturdy closures, so you can enjoy our purses for a long time.
Wallets for ladies
Variety is the magic word. Matching the mood, weather and outfit, women will find a wide selection of women's purses at Simaru. The design should match the clothes and style, the shape the respective handbag - no problem! From floral patterns to classic natural cork, Simaru has models for every look. What our customers especially love about our cork wallets: The material feels especially soft and supple and the shine even increases over time!
Whether it's a handy wallet for afternoon shopping that's always at hand in your favorite shopper or spacious long purses with extra space for business cards, photos of loved ones and small souvenirs - we've thought of everything for you!
Purses for men
The one or none! While women often own several purses, men often opt for one model, which they often use for years if they take good care of it. The functionality and material of men's wallets are usually the most important decision criteria. That's why at Simaru "he" can find plain and sturdy wallets in classic landscape format, but also elegant and high-quality premium wallets. Discreet dark shades, from small to large, durable and water-repellent - our Simaru men's wallets make men's hearts beat faster.
Yes, they exist, the purses for him & her. And we have them! Discreet design and functionality inspire women and men alike, which is why we have designed gender-neutral purses in different shapes and colors. Small tip: Our unisex wallets are also ideal as a gift, if you ever run out of ideas.
Purses for kids: girls & boys
Children come into contact with money from an early age. Girls and boys need their own wallets for their lunch money at school, bus and train fare, or for an ice cream on their summer vacation. This teaches them responsibility at an early age and how to handle their possessions with care. And with the children's wallets from Simaru, they are already making a commitment to the environment and sustainability at a young age.
Cork - All you need to know
The vegan alternative - ecological and climate-friendly
Cork is obtained from the bark of the cork oak, which grows mainly in the Mediterranean region in countries such as Portugal and Spain. Cork oak forests are a unique habitat and also play an important and major role in ecological processes such as CO2 storage.
Therefore, it is all the better that the trees are not felled for the extraction of cork, but only peeled. A cork oak tree is over 200 years old and is peeled for the first time at the age of 25 for cork extraction. After that, the bark grows back and can be harvested again approximately every 9 years. Peeled up to 17 times, a single cork oak produces about 700 kg of cork during its lifetime, making it a true sustainability miracle!
As a long-lived and evergreen deciduous tree, the cork oak absorbs a significant amount of carbon dioxide, among other things mainly responsible for global warming, during photosynthesis. The cork oak forests of Portugal, for example, absorb about 4.8 million of the world's 14 million tons of CO2 per year.
The cork oak - an infinite raw material
In Portugal, for example, the cork industry is one of the country's most important economic sectors, and is therefore heavily regulated and controlled. 23% of Portugal's forest area consists of cork oaks, which were declared the national tree in 2011. Due to the constant self-regeneration after peeling and the longevity as well as robustness of the cork oak, the raw material cork is almost inexhaustible and thus of a uniquely sustainable character. Even frequent forest fires in Portugal do not harm the cork oak population, as they are also largely resistant to fire. This is mainly due to the two layers of bark that each cork tree has. The outer layer, about 2 centimeters thick, protects the "emergency bark" underneath, which takes over the life-support measures for the cork oak in the event of a fire.
Water repellent and robust - a really strong fabric
People have been taking advantage of the extraordinary properties of cork since time immemorial. Even the Romans used cork as footfall insulation for their sandals, and in today's space technology, for example, cork is used as a heat shield. Cork is heat, cold and sound insulating, lightweight, buoyant, flame retardant, almost non-rotting, ageing resistant, easy to care for, decorative and a renewable resource! It almost looks as if nature had wisely adapted the properties of cork to human needs.
Incredibly easy to care for - tips on cleaning and care
Thanks to the water-repellent property of cork, cork fabric and cork leather, our cork products are extremely easy to clean. A damp cloth and a mild detergent are enough to clean the natural material and preserve its beauty. Afterwards, you can simply let the cork products air dry. And unlike leather, cork does not need to be greased regularly to maintain its natural shine.
