About this project
"We've meticulously designed an innovative & high-quality wallet at an affordable price" - Hanieh & Amir Sigari
We were tired of minimalistic wallets that made it impossible to access cards and cash easily. We have obsessed over every single detail. This isn't just another wallet, it's the best wallet crafted for beauty and complete functionality.
- Cash Strap features a hidden pocket so you can store your keys, coins, SD card and more!
- Money clip is perfect for those wish to keep it minimal yet functional
You can choose from either cash strap or money clip for those who wish for some more carrying space, Cash Strap is like no other. With a built-in pocket, now you can carry extra gear without compromising the slick aesthetics of your Futur wallet.
Every component of the Futur Wallet was meticulously designed. From the chamfered edges to the hidden screws, this wallet excels in clean design like no other. It wasn't an easy task, but through advanced manufacturing and assembling techniques, the aluminum and carbon fiber versions feature a seamless design that hides all hardware components out of sight.
- Designed with functionality in mind, the cut out at the bottom allows for your thumb to push or pull your cards with ease.
- Easy fan your cards to access lesser used cards.
Traditional wallets are big and bulky. The Futur wallets slim form factor holds all your essentials without creating a massive pocket bulge.
Each wood version is CNC machined from a block of pure black walnut or carbonized bamboo. It is then hand sanded and varnished to bring out the natural beauty in the grains. Due to the inherent properties of the woods, each one is unique to you. The wood is supported by a metal core. This was a pivotable design feature which not only made the wallet stronger but also added RFID protection. By doing this, we unintentionally made the world's first completely RFID blocking wood wallet. The screws used to bind the wood body to the metal core is a custom made t3 Torx head screw with "CD" grains. They say the devil is in the detail and we spared no expense perfecting these details.
In the summer of 2014 while working in New York City, Amir had his credit card information stolen. Hundreds of dollars of fraudulent purchases were made using his personal information. After consulting his bank, they had informed him that credit cards were being skimmed all over the city using simple RFID technology and that he may have fallen victim to skimming. RFID blocking wallets prevent scammers from stealing your information.
We are a team of siblings who wish to create beautiful products that solve everyday problems.
The tale of Futur wallets began years ago, when my sister Hanieh and I were growing up. Although we were eight years apart, we were very close. We shared a passion for beautiful design, and as we traveled the world experiencing a myriad of diverse countries and cultures, we were inspired to channel that passion into creating a product elegant in both form and function. Fast forward to 2015. While completing my second year of engineering school, I approached my sister contemplating the failings of today’s minimalistic wallets. They just weren’t sexy or functional! We put our heads together--me with my engineering background, and Hanieh with her understanding of business and materials science--and set out to create the FUTUR of wallets!
Risks and challenges
We've been able to mitigate the risk associated with this project by paying for the prototyping and tooling before hand. We've even visited our manufactures and discussed the scope of the project to make sure they can handle the complexities of the project. We've done our homework and are prepared to get these wallets out!
We've partnered with an amazing shipping and fulfillment company based out of the U.S. whose expertise is in Kickstarter projects so we know we'll get the wallet shipped out to you in a timely manner!
