TODAY’S PATENT – FLOATABLE FABRIC WALLET
The FLOATABLE FABRIC WALLET was invented by Michael S. Sandos (Salt Lake City, UT) on the 24th of June 1980 bearing patent number US4209048A.
The present invention relates to pocket-sized accessories and particularly provides for a floatable fabric wallet. The wallet has a back piece that is rectilinear in shape. The back piece has an inner fabric liner, an outer fabric layer, and material is inserted between the inner and outer layers which are sized the same and secured each other. The inside of a piece of cloth is fastened to the back to form currency pockets that are large enough to accommodate paper currency. The back and inside are folded around the main axis, which approximates the center of the length of the interior. The inner piece, liner, and outer layer are made up of water-resistant material. The fabric layer of both outer and inner pieces is made up of duck-like material and the insert is made up of non-absorptive material which resists liquid migration therethrough. In the case of inner fabric, it is made of nylon-like taffeta material and also, the edges of the wallet are secured with the binding material. This invention proved to be more convenient and conventional by nature.
