Carbon? Sounds powerful. What's going on there then?

Powerful it is, wanderer. A slimline, metal core wallet bound in carbon fibre impregnated leather to give a long lasting, durable wallet to be handed down the family line. Like watches, furniture and two-piece suits that your Dad no longer fits in, Carbon is to be given to the next generation once you relinquish ownership over it.

Who is it for? Vikings? Space vikings?

Probably but Carbon is really for anyone who is tired of wallets falling apart, creating unnecessary bulges in their pockets and those who want an element of style with their more functional accessories. 

Looks next level. What's it made of? 

Next level indeed. Carbon fibre impregnated leather bonded around a laser cut high grade aluminium core.

Keep your cards in Carbon even while using chip & PIN (flapjack not included)

Woah mate, calm it! Carbon fibre impregnated leather?! 

You heard it right. This stuff is currently used in high end transport (yachts, supercars and so on) and in Formula One, all due to it's incredible abrasion resistance. Check out the range below:

Carbon GT 

In our GT wallet, we have the same carbon fibre weave you’d find in the driving seat of Formula One cars. When you put your keys in your pocket, they’ll be next to that same skill, instinct and greatness you see at the top of the world of motorsport. 

Carbon Air 

Using the same carbon fibre weave as deployed in aerospace engineering, Carbon Air puts the peak of human technological advancement within your hand. Alongside your phone and your watch, why settle for less in a wallet?

Terra 

Refined, natural and monolithic, our carbon leather wallets will act as a monument to you, lasting age after age, from father to son, a part of who you are. 

Anything else?

How about Copper?

 Or Gold?

How does it work? Magic? Science? BOTH?!

Simmer down. A laser cut core of high grade aluminium composes the backbone of the wallet. For cards, we have installed an ejection system that with a push up from your thumb raises up to three cards from the wallet. Meanwhile, the back features a heavy duty elasticated strap, giving you space to store extra cards and plenty of cash.

My current wallet is bulky as I'm a receipt hoarder. Can Carbon help me with this?

Carbon is low profile and minimal. If you want to shove receipts in there, go ahead, but you won't have room for much else (apart from IOUs and vouchers). Carbon has a Single Bulge Guarantee. There should only be one bulge in your trousers *cough*. It's not the pleats.

Carbon in detail

Carbon close up

You can choose from any of these leathers with any metal, we will send out a questionnaire when the campaign ends so you can choose.

 What will the funds be used for?

The funds raised over Kickstarter will be used to purchase the hides, metal components and necessary bonding agents in order to produce the wallets.

When can I have it?

You're inquisitive. Good. Never lose your eye for knowledge. Or do in this case.

If you order from the limited runs, you can have it in time for Christmas! If you’re looking for a gift for somebody, fancy slimming down the bulk in your pocket or if it’s simply time to upgrade your existing wallet, now is the time to strike.

The first limited batch of orders will be completed for shipment worldwide in early November. If you missed out on the early birds, fear not. We can produce more but we cannot guarantee delivery this side of Christmas 2014. We've set a date of March 2015 as an advisory in case we get a lot of pledges; these wallets take a lot of work to make so we've tried to be as realistic as possible in delivery schedules.

So what do I do now?

Pledge thyself, friend. Get yourself a Carbon wallet whilst they're still hot from the forge. We'll ask you for your weave choice in our post campaign survey. Wield it with pride and don't feed it after midnight.

Seriously though, there's a sci-fi book called 'Space Viking'.

Time To Level Up

Risks and challenges

As all our wallets are assembled and finished by hand, we can only do so many at a time. However, we've worked out how many we can comfortably make before Christmas 2014 and we're confident we can deliver on time to get Carbon into your hands before the world's only sanctioned burglar breaks into your house, drinks your brandy and shoots off up the chimney after leaving a load of packaged stuff lying around.
