Cath Kidston Ticket Holder
Advantages: Small and water-proof
Disadvantages: A bit expensive and design could be improved with space for money
I've been looking for a pretty ticket holder after my last ticket holder ripped got damaged from rain, wear and tear. Whilst I was browsing in John Lewis, I saw Cath Kidston Ticket Holders range on display and their vintage designs really caught my eyes. Since I've got some vouchers from doing online surveys and other things, I decided to use my vouchers for a nice little treat.
This Cath Kidston ticket holder cost me £6.00. The one I've purchased is different from the dooyoo picture; I own the 'Kempton Rose' design that has a nice pale lime green background with roses pattern. I love the design and the colour scheme, it's very typical of Cath Kidston but that's the reason why I really like this design. It has places for 3 cards inside, which is good enough for me. Also, I sometimes put a couple of £10 notes at the back of the cards for emergencies and the slot is tight enough to hold both the bank notes and the card.
The material used for this ticket holder is cotton with transparent PVC sewn on as a top layer. I've had this ticket holder for about 5 months now and except from a tiny tear where the middle fold is, the rest of the ticket holder is in very good condition. I have to say the material used is of good quality and it's pretty durable. This ticket holder got battered in the rain plenty of times, which is nothing unusual considering the British weather, but it does protect my cards really well. The water-proof PVC is very useful for someone who travels a lot. Especially in my case, I use my ticket holder for my debit card, university ID card and travel card; therefore, the water-proof material is a must for my ticket holder as my bag tends to get soaked during daily commutes from home to uni.
Overall, this Cath Kidston ticket holder is a pretty and nifty product for someone with a busy schedule. In my case, I think this product is quite useful because I don't like to keep taking my purse out of my bag everyone I get on a bus or a train. Also, at university, I have to show my ID card to have access to most buildings and it's quite convenient with this ticket holder; I can just put this in my pocket as it's small enough, which I couldn't do with my purse, when I want to go in and out of buildings frequently. I have a bad habit of leaving my bag at my desk or in a library computer room and it used to be that I couldn't go in because I forgot my purse. Therefore, this ticket holder is a very useful purchase for me.
Price wise, it's quite expensive for a ticket holder as I know you can get cheaper ones with good designs as well. However, this is one of the times where I can pay a little bit extra for a prettier design with good quality. Technically I got mine for free using my vouchers so it's a plus for me. It's a good purchase overall.
Thank you for reading. :) x
