I've had a wallet made from Tyvek I bought 3 years ago that has been great. It has signs of age obviously, but not anything nearly as bad as you'd expect for something that feels like paper and has been travelling around in my pocket for over 1000 days.
Original look first then mine.

Hm, worth looking into this then. I am not in need of a new pencil case, but something like that wallet would be nice if it came at a price close to this pencil case. My only concern was its durability, but three years of regular use and it still looks like that? Impressive. I could really use one since I abuse my wallets haha.

Yeah, tyvek is known for its durability and is Dynomighty's main advertising point.

I used to make paper wallets; an 8.5x11 sheet, folded suitably, makes a mighty thin wallet. <http://www.instructables.com/id/Paper-Wallet/> It would only last a few weeks, but I can find a sheet of paper just about anywhere.
A couple of times, I'd use Tyvek (generally grabbed a shipping envelope) instead of paper, and it was a vast lot more durable than plain paper. The material would start being fuzzy at the edges from pocket friction after six months, but that doesn't mean it was anywhere near structurally worn out, just dirty.
