Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Alicia Klein and her company, Vallavista Corporation, thank you for visiting our website. We are home for three brands: TAXI WALLET®, ALICIA KLEIN®, and OWL®recycled.
In 1987 Alicia co-created an original little wallet she named the Taxi Wallet® — and in less than a quarter of a century, Taxi Wallet® has grown into a treasured American brand, winning the affections and the following of men and women alike.
Slip this exceptionally slim and compact wallet into any pocket and be on your way with all you need. Two currency pockets separate U.S. and foreign money. An interior security pocket holds a driver license and credit cards. The easily accessible outside pocket is perfect for business cards and receipts, while a generously gusseted snap pouch keeps a pocketful of change from jangling in your jeans. So go ahead. Downsize. Travel light. The Taxi Wallet® is destined to be the best wallet you ever carried!
We’ll let our fans tell you the rest:
This is my second Taxi Wallet and I will use nothing else. I view both pieces as a work of art, the feel and texture of each wallet only gets better with age and a patina will develop which will give it its own characteristic. When you have an opportunity I strongly suggest getting one, you'll never regret your decision.

I have used a Taxi Wallet for years and given many to friends. It's compact and capable of holding everything I need and it fits in a pocket for a quick run into the store.
— Sandi, El Paso
This will be my 2nd Taxi Wallet. I love them. The first one I received as a gift and used it daily ten years. I'm hard on wallets, they normally only last two years. It really is a time saver. Where the video suggests business cards and receipts, I keep the most used credit card for easy access.
— Michael, Colorado
This is an awesome little wallet, just the perfect size to slip into your pocket when heading out. No need for the bulky purse as it holds credit cards, drivers license, receipts, change and lots of money! Very unique designs. I got the Imagery design which showcases taxis, wine, beer and martinis. Perfect!!! And it's leather! Love the RED interior. Great quality and cool tin box for gift giving.
— Sally, Minneapolis
This is my second Taxi Wallet... Still have my first one... gave the second as a gift. No better wallet made!
— Tony, Lancaster
Taxi Wallet® is a registered trademark of Vallavista Corporation.
With the motto “Making the Case for the Working Woman,” Alicia officially launched her signature collection in 2006. Originally designed with the female executive in mind, the collection has grown to appeal to business people of all ages and career levels.
But it’s not all business — there’s whimsy, too! Fans of the iconic Nancy Drew Mystery Stories® are thrilled with our vibrant Imagery coated canvas accessories celebrating the famous girl sleuth. And most of Alicia’s accessories are available in an array of rich, juicy colors and patterns that brighten your day while organizing your stuff.
Since 2007, the OWL® brand of environmentally friendly accessories has enjoyed international success in the promotional products market, online e-stores, and eco-retail boutiques and catalogs.
Growing up in the Midwest as the big sister in a large, close-knit family, Alicia worked her way through college, graduated from the University of Iowa, and moved with her college-sweetheart husband to the Bay Area. Starting out in San Francisco with Burberry’s of London, Alicia developed her innate sense of clean, elegant style around an appreciation for Burberry’s fine materials and construction. Alicia notes with amusement: “It was not the Kate Moss and bikini Burberry’s back then; it was still the Queen’s Burberry.”
Alicia credits her mother for her sense of style and her father for her strong work ethic. “I know what luxury is – and I know what practical means. My goal with my collections is to offer the same high-end look and feel of luxury but with more features, more built-in practicality, and best of all, at down-to-earth prices.”
As reflected in the business cases, wallets and portfolios she designs, Alicia continues to value an unpretentious aesthetic that bridges her personal life and her professional life. She is as happy backpacking in California’s Sierra Mountains with her husband or exploring the coastline with her grown sons as she is spending her time working with people and products she enjoys while creating and marketing brands that will endure.
