Hi Kickstarter!

We're so happy to introduce our first product.

There are so many cool wallets on the market today, but we felt that something was missing. That's why we made this wallet, the Evan wallet™. The Evan wallet™ is made out of leather and includes a band that secures the contents.

We are Ainste™, inspired by Amazon, Einstein and Steve Jobs. We are devoted to creating unique products. The creator of Ainste is Ryan Kim. He is interested in photography and design. Even as a young child he had interests in designing new and different things. He is very excited to share his first design with you.

We been developing this initial wallet for about ten months. There were many design revisions and prototypes, but finally we got it!

We currently have a small sized and regular sized Evan wallet™. In the future we plan to make larger Evan wallets™ for other countries that fit with the currency of the country. We think that many people will enjoy the unique design of this wallet.

Our goal is simple- to make better products and make people happy with our products. That's all.

You can throw the wallet on your vehicle dashboard and the Ainste™ Evan wallet™ does not move at all (in regular driving conditions). (This video was taken with a tripod. Please do not try to take a video while driving). 

We have a manufacturer we are working with. Once the project is finished, we will notify the manufacturer and they will begin production of the wallets. 

We would appreciate your support by helping launch Ainste™ in making a pledge. The funds we earn will help us to create and produce other wallets and products.

Thanks for taking the time to visit our page. We hope that Ainste™will be able to make more unique wallets and products in the future.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We anticipate that we will be able to ship our products around early March and possibly late February. We do not expect that we will run into any challenges, however, there is always a possibility that things will not turn out as expected. However, we will do our best and hope to have the wallets in your hands as soon as we can.

  • The wallets are made with top layer premium cow leather and the leather is really soft and supple. Occasional exposure to water is okay, but we don't recommend that you constantly expose the wallet to moisture or water. the band Is designed to stretch with minimal effort and tailored to the size of the wallet. Just keep in mind that with any product the quality will lessen over the years. The band should hold up but depends on how rigorously you use it.
