After a successful campaign for our Mark cardholder wallets, we went back to the drawing board, deciding on what to create next. Only then did we realize that we haven't perfected the bifold wallet. Like the Mark cardholder wallet, we wanted a bifold that is simple, yet sophisticated. Something subtle yet stands out as a conversation starter. A wallet that is functional yet practical to carry everywhere you go. The perfect minimalist wallet worthy to be your companion.

"If it holds coins, it'd be perfect," "it needs to fit all currency."

We hear you, and we added more.

We bring you, the Mark Bifold.

We really do not have to carry as many cards and stacks of cash like we used to. Technology has advanced so fast. Payments can be made online and with your mobile phone. Cards have multiple functions and membership cards are moving online. As a result, we carry lesser in our pockets and that's where Mark will keep all these essentials neatly, right where you want it.

Features

 

 

Front half of Mark Bifold is non RFID so that you can still scan your commuting card without removing it. The rest of the cards stays protected on the other half.

With the aim of making the Mark Bifold the slimmest and most functional bifold wallet, we knocked on doors and are really fortunate to be collaborating with Sanpo, a Japanese company which specializes in making these ultra slim Walkie Pens. These pens retail for around USD15 on other platforms like Amazon. As an add on for just USD7 or SGD10, you will be able to complete your wallet with this beautiful pen.

Materials

To make Mark a durable and aesthetically pleasing wallet, we went with 3 types of material: 900D Polyester Oxford Canvas Fabric, Crazy Horse Leather and our new addition, the Nappa Leather.

While testing various material, we found these fabric and leather to be the most suitable. Polyester canvas is extremely strong and is very durable. It is resistant to stretching and it is wrinkle free. Polyester retains its shape and hence is good for making outdoor clothing and equipment for harsh climates.

No one piece is the same.

If you are getting Mark in crazy horse leather or canvas with crazy horse leather, you will be happy to know that your wallet is unique to you.

Crazy horse leather ages uniquely as the leather takes on your personal patina.
Crazy horse leather ages uniquely as the leather takes on your personal patina.

Crazy horse leather makes the wallet unique to its owner, creating a patina over the course of using the wallet. This makes the pattern on the leather truly unique to you!

Nappa leather is our new addition. We chose it because it is so soft to the touch yet durable at the same time. Wallets made with nappa will exude a stylish, classy and sleek look.

Color and style to choose from

We've tried multiple variations and present to you the most beautiful options to choose from. Choose between the Oxford canvas and the full leather versions, each having two color styles.

Manufacturing preparation

Initial prototypes and final version.

We have been working with our manufacturing partner for over 2 years. For our test batch, we have produced 100 Mark wallets. At this point, we are confident that they will meet our QC standards and deliver the wallets on time, as usual! After the Kickstarter campaign:  

1. Once Kickstarter funding has ended, we will be sending out surveys to collate the colors and quantities to manufacture. We will then place the full order for raw materials and will schedule for the production of Mark Wallets .   

2. We will be travelling to be on site with our manufacturing partners to conduct the QC process, to ensure our manufacturing timeline is not delayed.  

3. When the wallets are completely manufactured, we will assemble them in the packaging and ship all the Mark wallets to you, our backers!

Our Story

Modest Mark works in a humble studio based in Singapore. We are serious about what we do, designing everyday carry goods with you in mind; reducing the unnecessary so you can focus on what really matters. 

Our current line up consist of slim RFID wallets, travel wallets and billfold wallets. We have an obsession over 2 things: clean aesthetics (modest, low profile designs) and removing the excessive noise in our daily lives, by increasing our efficiency and productivity (just like how Mark Zuckerberg simplified his wardrobe). 

Our products has been designed and built upon the principles of “One Thing Less” - One thing less to carry around, one thing less to worry about.

We challenge ourselves to do the thinking, innovating to create products we believe will improve your daily situations.

All you have to do is to enjoy the simplicity derived from the complexity.

Risks and challenges

Once the Mark Bifold gets funded, we will begin to finalize all the details with our suppliers and manufacturers, even before the funding reach us. To our best ability, we will make sure all controllable risks are taken of, so that all unnecessary delays will be mitigated. Our team is experienced and has been delivering campaigns on time. Although we do not see any direct risks and challenges, there are always unexpected challenges that may present itself during the process of productions. We hope to run everything as streamlined as possible, ahead of schedule!
