About the Project


My name is Kan Yamamoto, a graphic designer based in the village of Tosayama, Japan.
Kamino Wallet is a project in which I’m trying to design and distribute a universal tool for the real world in a creative, affordable, and sustainable way.

The idea has emerged from the problem I had with my wallet.
By having a bulky wallet in my back pocket all the time, I got the habit of collecting unnecessary junk and worse than that, a back pain.

For years, I’ve been searching for an ideal way to get rid of it and started making my own. 
After trying various materials, paper, that I had always considered the material for prototypes, turned out to be the best solution for me, and possibly for you too.

I hope it helps you to simplify your life, as it did to mine.
Thank you!

By the way, the word “Kamino” means “made of paper” in Japanese. 
And No, it has nothing to do with that planet in a galaxy far, far away.
