When do you carry both your iPhone and your wallet? Every day. So, what if you could carry only your iPhone and your essential cards– and in a way that only you would know?

        
  • Full-grain, natural leather ages handsomely with you over time, sourced from tanneries certified for environmental stewardship. 
  • Hidden card storage is what makes Wally great: Up to 3 must-have cards stay secure, close at hand– and out of sight.  
  • Quick card access with our signature Wally Pull-Tab™
  • Updated and improved designs– just for iPhone X

Do you crave a case to protect your investment? Or do you appreciate functionality but you're an ultra-minimalist at heart? We hear you both. And Wally has you covered...

A sleek leather case to protect your investment:

  • Hand-wrapped in durable, natural leather from eco-conscious tanneries, promises to age handsomely over time
  • Protective case with strong polycarbonate core and raised front bezel protects against drops 
  • Soft microfiber interior protects your iPhone X against scratches
  • Responsive push-through leather buttons and open bottom for optimal swipe-up action
  • Included screen protector is easy to apply and made of edge-to-edge tempered glass– it's the complete protection package
Due to the natural properties of the material, leather colors may vary slightly– and will wear in handsomely with use.

"While there are lots of wallet-style options on the market, Wally Case and Wally Stick-On stand out as two of the most slim and refined ways to protect your iPhone and discreetly carry your wallet essentials. The natural full-grain leather is super soft and comfortable in hand right out of the box."
– Michael Potuck

"My favorite feature of the Wally Case and Wally Stick-On since day one has been the design of the card slot, which has a ingenious pull-tab that makes removing the cards a snap."
– Steven Sande

Because this is a limited run of Cases and Stick-Ons, please select your Wally type and color now, before the close of the campaign. Only the quantities shown in each pledge level will be made available.

Plus: Screen protection that's stronger than steel. 

Included with every Wally Case or Wally Stick-On is a screen protector. It's virtually invisible, incredibly strong, and easy to apply (seriously– no sprays or frames to fuss with). 

  • Edge-to-edge design is contoured to fit iPhone X perfectly 
  • Tempered glass is [9H] hardness– the strongest on the market
  • Crystal clear for zero distortion and 100% optical clarity 
  • Zero interference with touch-screen performance– you won't even know it's there

Finally, there's no need to hide your screen behind a folio case; enjoy full access to your iPhone X while keeping it scratch-free and shielded against drops.

After rounds of prototypes and testing, we can honestly say that this is the Wally Case we've always dreamed about. It is entirely wrapped in leather, a laborious method done by hand by skilled craftsmen– the feel and protection is unparalleled. 

And along the way, we fell in love with Wally Stick-On all over again– with a simple but significant change to the original design, Wally adds card-holding capabilities to your iPhone in the most minimal and reliable way.

We've spent time and care exploring construction methods to achieve optimal functionality in the smallest, sleekest package that also provides the best feel in your hand. 

        

Our incentive to innovate comes from a deep desire to create useful objects that people love. It's our mission to make life a little easier with items that are simply functional, intuitive, and made to satisfy the picky minimalist. We're having fun (and working hard) creating products that solve everyday frustrations, enabling you to "distil your everyday."

In the summer of 2011 we joined together to create our own product designs, and launched our first product on Kickstarter in 2012. It was tremendously satisfying to be part of the dynamic crowd-funding community that allowed us as designers to connect directly with customers, other creators, backers – you

We’re lucky to have been on our life-simplifying mission now for seven years, and each of our seven Kickstarters have successfully funded. Distil Union goods have since been shipped to over a hundred countries– including pledges to Backers on or before the anticipated delivery date. Our company and products have been featured in:

Wally's pull-tab has a surprisingly satisfying zzzzip

We've taken the time to get these new Wallys just right, and now we're seeking the funding we need to pay for manufacturing. All of Distil Union's best-selling products exist today thanks to the generosity and gumption of the Kickstarter community. We can’t do this alone– will you pledge your support? Or help us spread the word?

 

High fives, and thank you for your support! 

  
   
      
                           

Risks and challenges

We’ve been in the product business together for well over a decade, and we know that surprises can happen along the way. Luckily, with that experience we've learned ways to minimize risk:
+ working closely with trusted manufacturers
+ setting comfortable schedules that allow for hiccups
+ doing thorough work in advance (our due diligence as designers)
+ applying what we've learned in all seven of our successful campaigns

We have a reassuring track record of successful product launches with on-time delivery: This is our 8th Kickstarter, and all 7 of our previous Kickstarters were fully funded and delivered on time. View any of our past campaigns for the confidence that we're going to design something useful, execute it well, and get it to you when we say we will, with informed communication along the way.
