Redefining The "Wallet" From Scratch

We have all seen the new minimal wallets, compact and slim but lack important features. With the demand for everyday carry to be more convenient and quick in this fast paced world, there was a clear motive for a fresh take on the wallet. We spent countless weeks researching what people liked and disliked about the minimal wallets that are on the market. Many people have asked for an ID pocket and yet we do not have a minimal wallet that features one. Does it block RFID scanners? Like every good designer, we listened. Of course we kept a few ideas of our own in mind and created the Alpha Wallet.

Who is the Alpha Wallet For ?

Not only the intuitive attitude was important in the design, but we felt the need to keep things fashionably fresh, and offer new looks to the wallet scene. A person of any age or gender will love their Alpha. Equally important to us is to keep the crafting local to boost our economy.

Truly Minimal. Or Not.

Although Alpha is featured as a "Minimal Wallet", there are no sacrifices as to what you can carry with it. No more fear of ridding your wallet of cards you may need in the future, to try and slim your wallet. You can use it everyday to pay for coffee, groceries, carry a stack of business cards, or you can take it on your wildest adventure in Angel Falls, Venezuela. Its up to you!

Identity Theft - More Common Than You Think

One of the biggest problems of our modern world is data theft. Data theft happens everyday and in many ways, so much so that even big companies like Target face challenges when it comes to protection. We know that your security matters the most, so we designed Alpha as an RFID blocker for your banking cards.

It's being defined as a "phenomenon" and RFID blocking is becoming more of an importance in the modern wallet. We recommend you let your family and friends know about it, so they can make smart decisions and avoid potential data theft later.

3 tips to Slim Your Wallet

1.Take pictures of your receipts and leave them behind.

2. Leave your membership cards behind; access through your registered phone number

3. Use cloud drives to store important business contact info

After all, you don't want to be like this guy!

What Will Your Verse Be?

Personalize your wallet with our professional laser engraving. Think about it. You almost always have your wallet on you, and if you've already decided to pledge for Alpha your going to have it for a very long time. What's better than making your wallet represent you? Make the most out of everything you can to redefine your everyday carry. If you would like to laser engrave more than just your initials, please shoot me a message and we will work together.

During prototyping, we highly desired the carbon fiber. Carbon fiber is used often in super cars, boats, jets and airspace industry. It is super strong and extremely lightweight, and we are especially fond of it because it looks amazing.

Beauty & Function. All in Virginia, USA

Alpha was inspired from a shared sense of a new beginning. What it translates to us is one of the most natural feelings in the world, we call it pride! Everyone is proud of where they are from, especially when quality is partially what defines your pride. These are the fundamental morale's that have driven me to start Alpha. This is the beginning of American Machine, and Alpha is the first lineup of many up-and-coming products.

Made from solid bars of aircraft grade aluminum, Alpha Wallet is fully machined using a sophisticated process. After machining, each wallet is bead blasted and anodized with our advanced finishing process. We leave the brass wallets untouched as the natural finish gives it character.
