It's a Dahon Curl, which folds smaller than a Brompton. Mine came with a nice heavy nylon bag, but if no then try the IKEA Dimpa bag.

The folded helmet is a CPSC-compliant Overade Plixi.

Looking at the linked example, I'd guess you'd want some assurance of the material itself used being of sufficient quality. I don't imagine any of the bits in this product's diagrams below are...
