  • Our Second Kickstarter

Two years ago, the Kickstarter community helped us, two sisters, Lucy and AJ, from the heart of England, realise our goal of creating the world's finest luxury t-shirts for videogamers. Our company has grown from that successful beginning into one of the UK's most prominent gaming fashion brands, worn worldwide. It's taken us 12 months to research and develop this beautiful wallet, simple, sophisticated, and with no compromises on quality. We are back to humbly ask for your help once again to create this exceptional product.

Gametee is a 100% Independent, Artist-Owned Business

We were founded on the principle that videogames are a meaningful art form. We treat our customers with love, respect, and kindness.

  • Ethically Sourced and Vegetable Tanned Leather
  • Incredibly slim at 0.6cm at its thinnest point

Reliable RFID Protection as Standard

RFID Sleeve offers 100% Protection Against Skimming Fraud
RFID Sleeve offers 100% Protection Against Skimming Fraud

 Traditional RFID fabrics are not dependable security for your cards, only being effective at a small range of frequencies. Our solution is to include an electromagnetic shield sleeve as standard with every Wallet. This ensures maximum available protection against 'skimming' and identity fraud.

The sleeve fits neatly into the wallet, and features a beautiful, Kickstarter exclusive design. A practical addition to every pocket.

A Powerful Emblem from Gaming Heritage and Japanese Culture

All gamers know the importance of this symbol to videogaming culture. But the emblem has a long and rich history, and is thousands of years old. In 1138 in medieval Japan, Tokimasa Hojo entered a cave on Enoshima Island, to pray that his descendants would be prosperous. The dragon god that dwelled in the cave heard his prayers and granted his wish, leaving behind three of his scales. This became the crest of the Hojo clan, and can be seen widely throughout Japan today.

The name for the symbol in Japanese is 三つ鱗, meaning 'Three Scales.'

The three-scales symbol is also present at the Zeniarai Benten shrine in Kamakura. It is believed that washing money in the waters of the shrine's spring will double it. We hope that your wallet brings you similar good luck and financial prosperity.

Elegant, simple, the Wallet is a Timeless Tribute to Gaming.
