The majority of minimalist wallets today sacrifice two very important elements: style and the functionality. Often times, they can’t even hold cash. I really wanted a minimalist wallet that was sexy and could hold cash, but I was left with nothing after my search.

The revelation for Tribe occurred while I was in the hospital. One of the most inconvenient experiences was having to carry around a large, heavy wallet– especially when I had to use a wheelchair. I was surprised to learn that one of the leading causes of back problems for men is carrying a heavy wallet in back pockets. I knew there had to be a way to slim down the conventional wallet and improve the style at the same time. While many wallets offered features I really liked, they all lacked a certain sex appeal I wanted in my wallet.

Over the past three years, I have done a lot of market research and created over 50 prototypes including variations of leather pull-tab wallets, traditional wallets and card sleeves. This entire discovery led me to these two core learnings: people want wallets that are visually appealing and wallets that are slim and easy to use.

To accomplish the first, I had to find the best materials that were sexy and would hold up better than leather. Carbon fiber, stainless steel, titanium and texalium all made the grade. For the highest quality carbon fiber, I partnered with a company that produces custom carbon fiber parts for race cars. For the stainless steel, I found another reliable partner who supplies eco-friendly stainless steel that is also 100% recyclable.

It's my passion to create and innovate. Your pledge will help make this Tribe a reality and together we will change the world... one wallet at a time.

Risks and challenges

We are bringing all of the experience forward from our two prior successful Kickstarter campaigns. We have established fantastic working relationships to bring you the highest quality carbon fiber, texalium and titanium. Getting the product to you in time is always a concern with crowdfunding projects, but we have developed great working relationships with our suppliers so not only should the product get to you in time, but it should be faster than when we first started.
