Zipper Closure -

This is the most common idea of closure in a wallet. A zipper connecting and binding the two ends of a wallet or purse keeps your things safe within. There can be a variety of zipper closures - one zip only connecting the two ends of the top of the wallet, one zip going all the way round, two zips connecting the extreme ends so that you can open it from any direction, hidden zippers, and there can be many varieties based on the manufacturer, usage, and style. Zipped closure ensures that nothing can be taken out or put in without letting the person know about it. If we talk about aesthetics, it gives a neat, clean, and nice appearance to your purse. 

Button Closure -

To lock or fasten the things in your wallet or purse, button closure is one of the best options. Button closure is a common sight in women’s wallets. Situated on the opposing ends, or on a flap, these button closures enhance the look of your wallet. Mostly found on Tri-fold wallets, Bi-fold wallets, or Fabric wallets, the button closure elevates the overall look of the purse. 

Magnetic Closure -

Magnet closures are in-trend, stylish, and have an urbane vibe. It is tactically placed around where the wallet closes. Growing popular in current times, Checkbook wallets, Travel wallets, and Card Case wallets generally have a magnetic closure.
