Mark - The Best Cardholder Wallet for the Minimalists

S$ 28,023

788

Back at the drawing board deciding on what to create next, we realized we haven't perfected the cardholder wallet. We wanted a wallet 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. 

Ladies and gentlemen, the Mark Wallet.

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 the Mark wallet will keep all these essentials neatly, right where you want it.

The test batch was initially made with a thinner canvas fabric. While testing various material, we found the 900D polyester oxford canvas to be the best fabric for the wallet. 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.

 As for our choice of leather, we are using imported Italian crazy horse leather. These leather is amazing when it comes to aging. It takes on your personal patina as you carry the wallet along through your daily activities.

No one piece is the same.

Mark is a handsome minimalist wallet designed for everyday carry, aging uniquely as the leather takes on your personal patina.

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.
This is Al's "messy" desk.
This is Al's "messy" desk.

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 Wallet 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!
