The coolest wallet for minimalists and artists
Hi everybody! I am Alexej Nagel, the developer and manufacturer of the Victoria wallet. It is my fortune to tinker crazy and unusual things, especially when it gives me a real pleasure. To test, to play and tinker,all these have been my passion since that time when I endeavored to my first project. Even in my childhood I ventured to build my own bike. Later, the wood sculptures, furniture, and even radios used to be my hobbies. I could never separate tinkering from my casual life! Why? Because I love it!
Why a wallet?
I was always in search of a special kind of wallet. Although the market is literally flooded with different kinds of wallets, there has never been anything suitable for me till now. I need a wallet such as a shadow - invisible but always with me. It should easy fit to my pocket, but being out of the pocket it must become an elegant eye-catcher and temper. Finally, the most important, it keeps all my prime documents together. Exactly such wallet I was dreaming about. And you?
About a year has passed from the moment as I started to tinker my own wallet. After having made many various prototypes in the past months, I have finally achieved the result I can be very satisfied with. And the best thing is: The wallet can also be designed individually.
The wallet Victoria has a simple design and is very practical for everyday life. Money bills, credit cards, notes and receipts (and of course much more) can be easily stowed with the help of the wallet. The wallet Victoria has been an eye-catcher at numerous fairs - especially in combination with business cards. With the help of the eccentric function of the wallet I stayed in memory of many people and always got calls back from my clients. If you go to a nightclub, and don't know where to keep your credit cards and ID, just use your Victoria wallet. It will be hidden in your pocket and you will never lose the lining.
The Victoria wallet is very light, has a comfortable size and lies well in the hand. The wallet can be quickly hidden in a trouser pocket or a pocket of a jacket and remains not obtrusive. Even in a woman's handbag, the Victoria wallet can be found very easily thanks to creative design.
After long considerations and countless tests the material for the purse has been finalized: acrylic glass.
Acrylic glass is durable, light and can be multifunctionally used. Additionally acrylic has a high gloss finish and offers very good maintenance qualities.
For the reason that the price of production remains adequate, the minimal produced quantity should be at least 300 wallets. It means at least 600 acrylic plates that are needed for the production. The acrylic plates are cut by a laser and brought to a right form. A pattern is engraved on one side of the plates, and then they are colored. Both acrylic plates are manually connected by an elastic rubber band. The used rubber band is very stable and extremely durable. I've been using my first prototype since 7 months – faultless and without any weaknesses. The rubber band remains in a good form even by an intensive usage of the wallet.
If I succeed in a start of the project – of course only with your great support - Victoria wallet has great potentials for further developments in different directions - for example in color, personalized engraving, different materials (leather, aluminum, wood, etc.). The possibilities are far from being exhausted.
At this point your support is needed to bring to life this type of a wallet. Manufacturing, packaging and logistics are funded with your support. Thanks a lot in advance for your interest in my project.
Risks and challenges
It is now almost a year passed since I've started working on the first Victoria wallet. Many things have changed meanwhile. I have developed and optimized, and now I can proudly present you "Victoria". At this point I would like to thank you as active supporters.
Still, I do not know how many followers my wallet will attract.
In case of really great interest, it can happen that the production will take a little longer and so it may come to insignificantly delays in deliveries. I would like to thank you in advance for your understanding.
