About

We live bikes: whether we’re commuting to work, hitting some awesome single track or riding our road bikes through the beautiful hills of Wisconsin. Our goal with the WiscoWood wallet was to create a unique, high quality minimalist wallet out of upcycled materials. We wanted something that would show off our love for bikes and would be built to last.

 We make every wallet from start to finish by hand.

We use high quality hard wood scraps from local businesses

We start by sourcing our wood from local businesses, we’re able to source high quality hard woods because we’re willing to process wood of any shape or size into what we need for a wallet.

After we process the wood we laser etch in a design

By having our hands in every step of the building process we can focus on making our wallets at the highest quality.

We couldn't make these without Sector67. If you're lucky enough to have a hacker space in your community, do yourself a favor and check it out.  

We'd also like to thank 4 & 20 Bakery and Cafe for letting us shoot there(and they have some of the best coffee and baked goods in town). And  Ixlan for the cool music. 

About Us:

Matthew Poster and Dylan Hughes are WiscoWood. Two friends that met over 15 years ago working together at a local bike shop.

Both have had many passions and careers, but neither have ever let go of their love of bikes. Matthew has worked as an engineer, designer and mechanic for Planet Bike, Trek, Bontrager, Cane Creek and many more. Dylan has followed his renaissance man heritage working as an IT consultant, photographer, and film maker always playing with cameras, coffee and bikes.

We're tired of the disposable lifestyle that's being pushed upon us, we expect more,YOU should expect more. Our dream is to make products in America that last and have as little impact on our planet as possible. Products that you're proud to use.

WiscoWood isn't our end-all, it's our beginning... By backing us you're helping create a new company with a vision.

FAQ:

Q: How do I back multiple items?

A: The easiest way to do this is to add up the total cost of the items and back the campaign with that amount. Then message us with the items you'd like to receive. 

Q: What are the dimensions of the wallet?

A: It's 91mm tall, 59mm wide and ~8-9mm thick(without cards).

Q: How thick is the bookmark? 

A: ~2-2.5mm depending on the type of wood used.

Risks and challenges
