BASICS: Slim Minimalist Wallet with easy access to all Cards

The Traditional bi-fold wallet carries more than you will ever need, it's too big for comfort, and causes back problems.  BASICS wallet = Solution

A rubber band wallet is too simple, not easily accessible, and is not something you want to show off to your friends. BASICS Wallet = Solution

We wanted to create a wallet that solved the problems associated with traditional wallets, and offered these convenient features:

  • Slim
  • Durable
  • Functional / Easy access to ALL cards
  • Ability to hold as many or as few cards as wanted.
  • Looks classy

It was a long process creating a wallet that solved all of these issues, and offered enhanced features.  We spent the last eight months testing multiple designs, methods, and materials to meet the above criteria. Through many long hours spent in the basement on the sewing machine, we finally got to the perfect wallet. Here are some of the prototypes that got us to our final destination.

Thank you in advance for your generous support.  We are so excited about this wallet. With your support, we hope to get this wallet in as many pockets as possible. Thanks again and again, it means the world to us!

We have set the delivery date as January.  Our original goal was December, however having worked in product development for 5 years, we understand the reality of the process and that obstacles will likely arise that will slow us down.  So rather than over-promise and under-deliver, we hope to be transparent and help set the right expectations.  So plan to receive the wallet in January, however we plan to work ourselves ragged to deliver in time for the holidays.  Either way, this wallet is worth the wait, trust us!

We promise to keep our backers in the loop all along the way. We know that we can't do this without you.  If you ever have any questions, feel free to reach out to us and we will get back to you ASAP.

Thanks for taking the time to check out our project.  We are so excited to bring the BASICS wallet to market! Please back us, or help us spread the word, so that we can put the BASICS Wallet in as many pockets as possible, starting with you guys.

Risks and challenges

We have spent lots of time in developing this product, finding competent people who can manufacture it and have planned out what types of resources and man hours we are going to need to fulfill all the pledges we receive. We are confident in our team's competence and abilities to do this right, however as with any project there are always bumps and unforeseen obstacles that could arise along the way. Our plan to deal with any potential obstacles is to be completely transparent to our backers, after all, without you guys we would be nothing. We will work through the night to get your rewards to you, and we will keep you informed all along the way. Thank you so much for your support!

  • While the crabby wallet is great, the thing we like most about the BASICS Wallet is its ability to give you easy access to all of your cards. With the pull-tab you don't have to spend time digging around. Just pull the tab, fan out the cards, and you can get to whatever you want. On top of that the elastic pocket can hold cash, coins, a key, and any other similar sized objects securely.

    Last updated:
  • Yes the wallet can hold cash, coins, or a key without a problem. There is an elastic pocket on the back side of the wallet that can hold these items securely.

  • Black, Gray, Red, and Mint. If you pledge $55 or more for a four pack, you can get one of each : ) or any color combination you can think of with those four colors.
