During my design research, I found that many card wallets are simply about function but if you think about it, a wallet is something that we carry around every day and show off to the world. Thus, I was motivated to design the Cuoiela, the wallet that is not only slim and convenient, but also feels stylish and precious to the owner. It took us 6 months and countless prototypes, but we have finally come up with design that incorporated finest quality leather with practical elastic fabric band, merging elegance with practicality.
The cuoiela features
- Minimalistic and functional design
- High quality leather front (stitch-less) and finishing
- Expandable band slot for carrying multiple cards
- Separate front slot to keep cash discreetly.
- Extremely light weight and thin
How it works
taking cards out from Cuoiela
Italian Walpier tannery processes only high quality cowhide from France. The company supplies leather for high fashion brands such as Marni and Etro. It is particularly loved by leather workshops in Japan for its exceptional quality.
Vegetable tanned leather is tanned using tannin other ingredients found in vegetable matter, such as tree bark prepared in bark mills, and other similar sources. It is more prone to scratch compare to chrom tanned but ample oil contents in Buttero acts to recover its smooth surface again through aging process, giving its unique luxurious and vintage look.
For backers who would like to back several cuoielas, simply add the amount of money. e.g) if you want to back one $25 cuoiela & two $32 cuoiela, choose $32 reward option with $89.(For international, add only $5 shipping fee) You can specify your rewards at the end of project through survey.
After I studied at the School of Art Institute of Chicago(SAIC), I have designed and received awards from many different design contests and worked as a freelance designer, but I was not able to mass produce them because the project required large investment. With your support and help through Kickstarter, I hope to take a very big step as a product designer, creating my very first own line of product. I can't thank you enough for taking interest in the Cuoiela and hope you like the Cuoiela to support its launch.
Risks and challenges
The only possible mishap we foresee is a possible delay in delivery by USPS mail service. Other than this, we do not anticipate any setback in fulfilling your pledge as we have manufacturing partners that allow us to handle unexpected large production volume without compromising quality.
We are confident and believe everything will commence as planned.
Also, we will always be in communication with all Kickstarter backers by posting frequent updates and respond any individual questions through our contact email.
