The capsule collection of wallets by IISE, was inspired by designs found in traditional Korean doors and windows known as A Ja Sal Mun.
Dating back to the 1300′s, the doors were constructed from wooden frames and special paper from the inner bark of the Korean Mulberry Tree known as Hanji. It is one of the earliest artistic attempts in combining design and function as the doors act as natural humidifiers and air temperature regulators, harmonizing the relationship between nature and people.
The inner circles are powder-coated in pebble grey with ends that curve gently inwards, while the outer circles are powder-coated in white.
