Evolution of the Arkk Wallet

The prototype of the wallet has definitely evolved from its cardboard beginnings to the sleek design of today.

The Arkk Wallet is made from aircraft grade aluminium precision cut with the use of water jet technology. The 1.5mm aluminium plates provide RFID blocking protection against theft.  

The dimensions are 114.3mm(l)x 63.5mm(w)x12mm(h).

The front plate features a ultra durable skin that offers the authentic look and feel of wood. It is specifically contoured to shape of your thumb "to fit like a glove".

It was designed as for the true minimalist. It has the capacity to fit your three most essential cards. It is usually your bank/credit card, ID card and other optional card. Although, you can fit other non-essential cards on the outer back plate.

The Next Phase

To get the Arkk Wallet into production, I need to achieve a minimum order quantity with my local manufacturers.  This will allow me to drastically reduce costs while providing a premium wallet at a reasonable price.  I have the manufacturing companies lined up to proceed with the project. They are very professional and excited about the wallet. Kickstarters help me get these wallets into your hands, together we can do it.

Thank you Kickstarter for your Support!

Risks and challenges

The greatest challenge in completing the project is the final satisfaction of my backers and ensuring that the new owners of the Arkk wallet are happy with the design and function of the wallet. When you create a new product, you want them to share the awesomeness that you had originally envisioned.

I have developed great relationships with my local manufacturers and I am confident that they can handle the demand when needed.

I am committed to be open and honest with my backers to keep you updated on the Arkk Wallet. If there are any hiccups with the manufacturing process, you will be the first to know.
