The word “wallet" has been in use since the late 14th century to refer to a bag or a knapsack for carrying articles.  The modern bi-fold wallet with multiple "card slots" became standardized in the early 1950s with the introduction of the first credit cards. Some innovations include the introduction of the velcro-closure wallet in the 1970s. Pocket-sized wallets remain extremely popular to this day.

A wallet is a small, flat case that can be used to carry such personal items as cash, credit cards, and identification documents (driver's license, identification card, etc.), photographs, transit pass, gift cards, business cards and other paper or laminated cards. Wallets are generally made of leather or fabrics, and they are usually pocket-sized but not always foldable.

The traditional material for wallets is leather or fabric, but many other flexible flat sheet materials can be used in their fabrication.

Various types of wallets:

  • Breast wallet (also called a "secretary wallet"): a wallet in which the banknotes are not folded. They are intended for men's breast pocket in a jacket.  Breast wallets will often hold checks and other monetary documents as they are too large for storage in a pants pocket.
  • Front pocket wallet (or money clip): a case with no currency compartment and very few pockets for cards. Usually banknotes are folded and held to the wallet with a metal clip.
  • Bi-fold wallet: a type of wallet in which the banknotes are folded over once. Credit cards and identification cards may be stored horizontally or vertically.
  • Tri-fold wallet: a wallet with two folds, in which credit cards are generally stored vertically.
  • Long wallet: a larger wallet usually worn with jeans, fastened by a chain, strap, or leather rein. Bills are held flat, and long wallets typically have a coin purse. Popularized by bikers to secure their wallets while riding a motorcycle, smaller chained wallets became popular in 1970s−'80s Punk fashion and in the early 1990s with the grunge fashion movement as well as Heavy metal fashion. Long wallets are popular with men in cash-based countries like Japan and often reflect Native American aesthetic influence.
  • Wallet band a type of wallet that uses a continuous elastic band, made of fabric or rubber, to secure cards and/or cash. Wallet bands have become popular as a way to reduce the bulk of a traditional wallet.
  • Travel wallet: used by travellers to hold essential documentation together, such as passports, tickets, boarding passes, foreign currency, travelers checks, itinerary, travel insurance, hotel booking information, and other similar items.
  • ID case/"Neck pouch": thin nylon or leather cases with plastic see-through compartments designed to hold an ID card. Usually worn around the neck, many have extra pockets for holding small items, hence they also function as wallets.

Have you heard about Google Wallet?  The terms may have changed, but as of July 2017, "Google Wallet is a fast, free way to send and request money. You can send money to someone using just their email address or phone number – they don’t need to have the Wallet app. When you receive money, you can have it transferred directly to your default payment method so you never have to cash out. All you need is a Google Account and debit card to get started."
