Finally, a broccoli rubber band wallet with some longevity!

The smallest, simplest, thinnest, you say?

Indeed. Granted, we haven't actually done the research to verify that claim, but who ever does. The point is, the Broccoli Wallet is super small, super simple, and will last forever.

 Wow, it's so thin and small and simple! But how many cards will it hold?

The Broccoli Wallet's elastic is extremely... elastic. It will hold way more cards than you should carry. I stretched it to the size of about 50 cards one time just to see how absurd we could get, and it held up fine and even had a bit more room left, although with that kind of tension it would surely lose elasticity over time.

So if you have 50 cards, it'll work for you. But you should also seriously reevaluate your priorities.

Material

We use a high quality knit elastic with a tighter weave than most for the Brocoli Wallet.

Check out the difference between cheapo elastic (left) and the more tightly woven, longer-lasting Broccoli Wallet elastic (right).

Cash

The Broccoli Wallet will hold cash, of course. But only in denominations of $1M.

You're welcome.

The Inspiration

We can't take credit for the idea behind the Broccoli Wallet. People have been using broccoli rubber bands as wallets for millenia.

We owe the inventor of the broccoli rubber band for this one.

Only problem is: those bands don't last long.

So we've used high quality knit elastic to immortalize the ol' broccoli band.

Immortalizing things does raise philisophical questions about our place in the universe and draw attention to our responsibility to immortalize responsibly. After all, an immortal semi-cognizent being could let all the immortality get to its head and try to enslave humanity in a moment of deranged boredom...

But we'll let subsequent generations deal with that. Today, we need us some wallets.

After a year of use...?

My first Broccoli Wallet shows no wear and tear, no fraying, no loose seams - the thing has held up very well and I expect it will last many years to come.

Risks and challenges

If this goes big, we'll have a really hard time producing them. We may not be able to get our hands of enough material fast enough, and our army of cat seamstresses may not be able to sew fast enough. But we'll deal with it.
