A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
Minimize your Every Day Carry! Brackeyt is the first 3-in-1 compact leather and wood wallet for cards, keys and coins
Fed up with carrying multiple bulky EDCs found in the market (bulky key caddies/pouches, wallets, coin/key chains/purse, etc) I sought to create a credit card sized all-in-one storage system for all the essential everyday items i need (keys, coins,cards, bills).
I decided to combine leather, wood, brass and cork leather as the choice of materials to use as in addition to picking up an awesome looking patina, these materials gets softer and easier to use the more you use it.
(Both wallet/key pouch above contains 6 keys, 6 cards, a handful of coins and some bills which I used to carry, now all of it fits inside the Brackeyt!)
After several rounds of prototyping, we are finally ready to release our latest version that feels good in our hands- the Brackeyt
Quality is important to us we have taken every precaution to ensure our product quality will not diminish due to order size and deadline. Hence the production amount are kept to a LIMITED number of only 100!
The Brackeyt is perfectly sized (dimensions of a credit card). The compactness allows you to slip it easily into your front pocket without any added bulk.
- No ugly ball of keys ever again
- No noisy jingling keys and coins - Legs, and pocket linings will be forever safe from the stabs of harsh metal keys - No fumbling for keys, coins and cards again - Protect your cards from RFID theft - Organize your key/coin storage area to fit your style - Fits nicely in your front pocket with no key bulge - Organize your EDC into one simple, compact, great to hold device
Quickdraw cards and keys (To check if your key will fit, make sure your key hole diameter is 4mm or more)
Handcrafted with Premium materials
Crazy horse leather
It is a type of full grain cowhide leather that has one of the highest durability. This exceptional durability is a direct result of a special wax used to reinforce leather fibers which has been buffed and smoothed out. This process results in the abrasion of the treated area changing its color. The transformation in its texture is not only an immediate one but allows it to change with time also, exhibiting an antique effect
Cork Leather A truly revolutionary material, it is virtually indestructible. Waterproof, stain proof and fire resistant. Anti-mites, fungi and bacteria. It’s stretchable, breathable, hypoallergenic and washable at 30 degrees. Light as silk, smooth as velvet and warmer than leather.

We're almost done testing with our final prototype, but moving to the production phase requires significant capital and scale. We need your support to finance the required materials and meet minimum order quantities. The more backers we get, the more value we are able to pass to our supporters in terms of material quality and better tooling equipment.
We've spent many months working out the details of this project, and are very excited about finally having the opportunity to bring Brackeyt to you.
Risks and challenges
Quality is important to us we have taken every precaution to ensure our product quality will not diminish due to order size and deadline. Hence the production amount are kept to a manageable number.
The design of the wallet has been completed and tested for more than 4 months. Production will occur in-house, unless orders exceed our capabilities. If that becomes the case, we have other local businesses with the ability to automate some of the steps we will otherwise do by hand.
Sourcing the raw materials should be a straightforward process, but if there are issues getting everything in stock on time, we have a list of other possible vendors we can switch to. At this point, we see no significant risks or reasons delivery won't be on time.
