UPDATE#3: We are happy to announce that, today we finished testing a new NERO wallet version!!!

Currently, Kevlar has many applications, ranging from bicycle tires and racing sails to body armor because of its high tensile strength-to-weight ratio; by this measure it is 5 times stronger than steel.

Helmets and vests made with Kevlar KM2 provide enhanced bullet and fragmentation resistance while remaining comfortable and breathable in the most inhospitable climates. Excellent thermal stability at temperature extremes, water repellent, chemical stability and resistance to petroleum products have made Kevlar KM2 an indispensable asset to the military personnel who use it every day.

UPDATE#2: We are happy to announce that, today we finished testing a new NERO wallet version!!!

The new NERO wallet has one of the two side pockets without the RFID blocking feature. In this way, one could use his bus, subway or train card without taking them out of the wallet while having his credit cards protected at all time. In short, 4 pockets will be RFID protected and one will be unprotected allowing RFID to pass through. On the unprotected side pocket we will emboss our logo, thus making it easy to recognize.

NERO Wallet All Three Versions:

  •  all 5 pockets RFID protected
  •  4 pockets RFID protected and 1 pocket unprotected
  •  without RFID protection

The perfect premium minimalist wallet for active people. 4 RFID protected pockets for Credit cards and 1 RFID pass through pocket for your bus /train/subway card.

Disclaimer: The wallet content is not water protected.

UPDATE#1: Starting today the Nero wallet is also available without the RFID blocking feature, for those who do not wish to take their cards out in order to get them scanned in buses, on the subway or in any other place they might need to.

Remember that episode of Seinfeld when George Costanza’s wallet over-stuffed with receipts, burst open like parade confetti?

Now in 2014 I have launch NERO wallet, the spacious minimalist leather wallet with 10 years guarantee and FREE Mending!

NERO Wallet is a modern minimalist premium leather wallet that blocks RFID signals while keeping your money, credit cards, and business cards organized and secure.

NERO Wallet protects your credit cards and ID's from being scanned unless you want them to be.

The 10-Year NERO Wallet is...

1 - A super premium, unisex leather wallet made with only the best italian leather and elastic.

2 - Built for life, guaranteed to last at least a decade and backed with FREE mending! 

3 - A battle cry: Not everything should be disposable. Companies have systematically lowered your expectations to the point where it's hard to know what to expect anymore. But it ends here.

4 - 100% Made in Europe, not in China.

5 - Sold direct. Premium leather wallets cost anywhere from $50 - $190+ in department stores. Cheap ones are only a few bucks less. And that's without the guarantee or free mending, of course. Nero Wallet is cutting out the middleman to keep the price to just half of what it should be.

NERO Wallet is lightweight, secure, slim, and designed to go where you go. Put it in your front pocket, slip it into your purse. Our wallet is perfect in any situation from the beach, to bar, to the boardroom.

NERO wallets are made of soft Italian leather and high-quality elastic.

WE WANTED A WALLET THAT:                                                 

Is lightweight; adapts to the user not the user having to adapt to it; works for right and left handed people; is pleasant to touch; is minimally designed; can handle any climate and environment; will never wear out; allows easy access to cash, credit and business cards; wouldn’t be limited to a fixed number of cards you could carry.

So, it had to do all these things and still have a design that was minimal and looked amazing!

MEET NERO: A PREMIUM MINIMALIST SPACIOUS WALLET

The technological development of smart gadgets made carrying around all that unnecessary stuff, like coins, receipts and year-old loyalty cards a thing of the past. The next step was to design a new concept of wallet for the modern, active person who hates schlepping around all that unessential stuff.

NERO wallet was created having exactly this in mind - to be a super-thin, card-carrying over-achiever. Because we believe that all you really need in your wallet are your essential cards and cash.

WHY NERO IS BETTER: A WALLET DESIGNED TO STRETCH

We observed that many of today's minimal wallets fail because the material stretches out leaving it unable to hold a smaller number of cards. The beauty of our durable, leather-elastic design is that NERO stretches and wraps tightly around your cards but still having a classy leather design. Whether you carry 10 or 20 cards one week and then 2 cards for the weekend, NERO will never stretch out or lose its ability to grip your cards or cash, and will make you look stylish in any situation.

NERO IS AMAZINGLY THIN At only 7 mm, NERO is as thin as the cards in your pocket.

DESIGN: BEAUTY & FUNCTION

When we decided to create a new design for a modern wallet, we wanted something that was simple, functional, trendy and felt good to handle. Not being satisfied with what we could find on the market, we decided to rethink the wallet by rethinking the way we carry our everyday objects. After months of prototyping and testing different designs, we've tailored the NERO Wallet into something we absolutely love to carry in our pockets, purses and bags. It had to be adaptable to any situation and environment, securely hold the items you placed in it and protect them at all times. It had to have as little stitching as possible, because that's where most wallets start to fail - at the seams.

THE PERFECT FIT FOR YOU
THE PERFECT FIT FOR YOU

REASONS TO SUPPORT:

Using an NERO wallet makes your pants fit better. NERO wallet is easy to find in your bag or purse although it is a minimal wallet. It's small in your pocket, and it's only as big as you need it to be. Cards are easy in and easy out. To respect the silhouette of the butt. It's hard to make your wallet stand out, but an NERO wallet stands out, without actually standing out. It's so versatile; use your imagination to decide how you'll use it! It comes in cute individual NERO wallet packaging perfect for gifting. Easy mailing. Easy gifting. Christmas shopping - Done!

THE PLAN

The funds raised through this project will be used to produce the NERO  wallet line, which includes six different leather colors. It will help with the costs associated with a large scale production run, including ordering all necessary supplies.

To prepare for a large order, I have enlisted the help of a sewing house in Milano - Italy that has agreed to help prepare NERO wallets in time for shipping to customers.

WALLET SPECS:

Dimensions: 9cm/3.55" x 6cm/2.36" x 0.7cm/0.28"

Material: Full Grain Leather & Elastic

Pockets: 5 Capacity: up to 20 Cards + Cash

Colors: Red, Orange, Brown, Blue, White and Black

FEATURES:

Securely holds 1 up to 20 cards. Cards, cash, coins and business cards can be easily put in and taken out. The slim design is barely noticeable in front or rear pocket. The leather & elastic wallet weighs in at only 27 grams/0.95 oz. making it ultra-light. Durability, I use the best Italian full grain leather.

JOIN OUR TEAM

This is where you come in. We need your help to get this product on the market and in your pocket. We are looking for people who are searching for ways to slim down and simplify their lives. People who believe it makes more sense to carry only what you need - not everything you own. Your support will help us cover the costs of our first production run.

OUR PRODUCTION PLAN

We have completed an intensive, 7 month-long prototyping process with our tailoring team to solve any durability problems and challenges we might face as we move into production. The next step is to place the order for materials and start the first production run of wallets.

Production schedule:

Celebrate the successful end of our campaign with some tasty desserts

Week 1: Place order for materials and schedule production

Week 1: Place order for packaging, leather and elastic

Weeks 2-4: Wallet production and print packaging

Week 5: Check every wallet to make sure they are perfect

Week 6: Package wallets for shipment Ship! We expect to start shipping all orders in December.

So please back our project. If you are unable to back our project, please help us in getting the word out to your friends and network – we’ll give you our gratitude and you’ll have the satisfaction in knowing that you played a vital role in rise of NERO wallets!

Thanks again for your time and for checking out our project!

Risks and challenges

Our primary challenge is spreading the word. While there is always the risk of manufacturing delays, we are extremely confident in our production timeline and that you will have your Nero wallet by end of December 2014 delivery date. We have produced prototypes and have spent the hole year preparing for this moment. We are ready to go.
