 THE DILEMMA

Have you ever experienced the embarrassment of holding up the queue from keeping change?
Have you ever experienced the embarrassment of holding up the queue from keeping change?

Accepting change is easy, but keeping it has always been a struggle. It's the year 2016, but we haven't really put a lot of thought into how we keep our change. So we wanted to create a wallet that would not only be beautiful, but would put our change receiving woes to rest.

Do you fumble with a coin pouch in your bag just to keep your coins?

MEET KIN 

KIN is the world’s first wallet that separates your cash and coins in a cinch. The wallet offers a simple solution to manage an age old dilemma, and is designed to manage coins and cash efficiently in ways not imagined!

WHY YOU'LL LOVE KIN

KIN does the separating for you.  

We’ve always received our change together, so why do we separate our coins and cash? With KIN, simply put all your change from the top, and let the wallet do the separating for you.

 

KIN catches all your coins safely, so you don't have to worry about them falling out.

 THE PROCESS

KIN was born when we noticed the problem of keeping change had gone by unaddressed for so long. After months of sketching, making, and creating, we have finally created something that we are truly proud of.

Risks and challenges

We are taking every possible precaution possible in order to ensure that we are able to deliver a high quality product that we are proud of in a timely manner. We believe in clear, transparent communication with our esteemed backers, and we wish to assure backers that any and all issues that may surface in the process will be relayed to you as soon as possible.

Currently, we are in talks with a manufacturer to bring KIN to life. However, our biggest challenge for this project will be meeting the minimum order quantities for manufacturing. This project can only become a reality with your help and funding!
