STORY

The majority of minimalist wallets today sacrifice style and the ability to hold cash (looking more like something you would bring on a canoe trip). I really wanted a minimalist wallet that was sexy AND could hold cash without all of the painful weight (both visually and physically).

The revelation for Tribe occurred while I was in the hospital. A very uncomfortable part of my experience was carrying my big wallet around – especially when I had to use a wheelchair. I was surprised to learn that one of the leading causes of back problems is carrying a clunky wallet around in your back pocket. I knew there had to be a way to slim down the conventional wallet AND improve the style at the same time. My research led me to many other minimalist wallets that have been made over the last few years. While many offered features I really liked, they all lacked a certain sex appeal I wanted in my wallet. 

Over the past 2 years I have gathered a lot of information, interviewed 100s of people and created over 50 prototypes (including variations of leather pull tab wallets, traditional wallets, and card sleeves). All of this discovery led me to the these 2 core learnings: ONE, people want wallets that makes their contents look better visually, and TWO, people want wallets that are slim AND easy to use. To accomplish the first, I had to use the best materials. Carbon fiber, stainless steel, and 24k gold 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 100% recyclable. The gold plating is managed at a facility in Toronto: I really wanted to ensure I could offer a real 24k gold product that was durable at the same time. To accomplish this we use a specially formulated clear coat technology that protects the 24k gold surface.

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.
