When Apple AirTags are everywhere, you might as well add a wallet to carry it. The Craft & Lore Worry wallet elegantly provides a slot for an AirTag without showing it off to everyone. All the while keeping it out of the way so the wallet can function easily for cards and cash. Made from Horween leather, this minimalist wallet is perfect for everyday, simple and elegant

The thing I don’t like about AirTag wallets is the presentation of the tag that we often see with wallets. I am not one to flash so I just think it is a distraction. So for this review, we have the “Worry” wallet from Craft & Lore, which is an excellent name because why would you have an AirTag in your wallet unless you are worried about losing it? I like the psychology application and the reason for the naming. So what do you have to worry about?
The Worry AirTag wallet color we reviewed is in buck brown and it comes with a nice little welcome card. The presentation of this wallet has some interesting and well thought out design principles, and you do not have to be an AirTag fan to agree with them. This wallet has a brass snap that helps keep things secure, but it does take a little bit of a push to get it to engage.
As we open the wallet, we can see one AirTag slot, which lets the AirTag in through the bottom and secures it into the open hole. The wallet provides one interior card slot with the capacity of 8 to 10 cards. From a sewing perspective, the leather is not secure on the opposite side, it simply folds over. It has an interior cash slot that takes notes folded once or wrapped. The wallet, itself, measures 4 x 3 x 0.25” and weighs 56 grams or two ounces. The company recommends up to 10 cards and notes. How you balance the capacity between the two is up to you, but it handled five cards and the cash folded once without any struggle. Excluding the Yen or Euro, the cash would fit fine as a cash wrap, watch the video if you would like to see how I loaded it in. Furthermore, it does not interfere with the snap, it comes down and secures just fine. I quite like the option and the ability to either fold it or use it as a cash wrap. Coming back to the AirTag, it slipped in just fine, no big deal, and to get it out, you muscle it down a bit and it can also fit coins. However, it did not work with challenge coins because they are a little too wide. Challenge coins are typically 1.5” to 1.75” wide, but you could insert a coin in there if you did not want to put an AirTag, nevertheless, this is made for an AirTag.

This wallet is designed and made in the United States from a 3-4oz full-grain vegetable-tanned leather. It is priced at $70. The brass snap keeps the wallet secure and it is hand saddle stitched. In addition, as are all Craft and Lore wallets, it has very light burnishing on the edges, nothing super glossy, but it is not raw either. The leather’s supple nature makes working with this wallet a dream. Moreover, the placement of the AirTag is superb. While most wallets have them displayed prominently advertised on the outside, this wallet has it a bit hidden and out of the way. You would never know one was in there due to the creative stitching design. While the snap is good, it does take a bit of effort, and without a quick access card slot, which is a difficult addition due to the design, you are left snapping and unsnapping the wallet to get to your most used cards. Similar to the JJ Leathersmith Lucais wallet, I suspect that the Worry wallet might do just fine without the snap.
While wallets might appear to be overly simple, that is the secret to a high-functioning wallet, which is not easy to accomplish as simplicity is hard to get to.
The final score of the Worry wallet from Craft & Lore is 5 for quality because it is of great quality and the leather, veg-tan, is unbeatable. Price scores 3, which I think is reasonable. Features score a 4, the AirTag placement is nice and is incorporated by the subtle design of the stitching. Usability scores 4 because it is easy to use and does not present issues neither with getting cash or cards out nor with the AirTag. Finally, perception scores a 4, which gives this wallet a final score of 41 out of 50.
