Hello! 

We are HUSKK - inventors, craftsmen and purveyors of tools for good carrying.

The smartphone has become an integral part of our lives. For some, it has taken the form of a companion – a bank for your memories, privy to your information needs, your communication habits and the intimate relationships you utilise to keep in touch.

So, we decided to revisit the way you carry. Just as the first wallets were invented hundreds of years ago to help people carry better with the advent of paper currency, we sought to help people carry better and complement our adaptability to mobile technology.

Not just a better container of daily essentials, but a solution true to the behaviour of the modern urban citizen, born of elegant handcrafted design and superior functional efficiency.

We first looked at the plethora of slim wallet choices, but we realised that reducing wallet bulk is just one small part of better carrying. That made us start to question the fundamentals and to look at the bigger picture: What - and how - does technology and design achieve?

As early as ten years ago, we used computers as workstations; we needed our bank passbooks to get in line for personal finances; we had our wallets everywhere to carry and transact with many cards and cash bills. Today, all that has changed. We send emails, manage complex projects, access banking services and make cashless payments all through a few taps on mobile apps installed on smartphones.

The marriage of technology and design has ultimately resulted in one thing - carrying less, doing more.

With that philosophy, we went back to the drawing board and squeezed every ounce out of our design chops. Toiling months and with our patent application later, we have our first prototype. We designed a wallet-case that embraces mobility, convenience and centers the attention on your most important gadget - your smartphone, for literally, a "smarter" way to carry.

Oh no, not another wallet campaign!

We know what you’re thinking. Another week, another wallet campaign on Kickstarter. You’ve got every kind of wallet you can ever think of - slim wallets, rotating cases, eco-friendly purses, phone cases etc. Why should I get another wallet? Why should I pay attention to the QUICKDRAW?

Here’s the kicker - we’re not telling you to get another wallet. We’re telling you to get rid of your wallet altogether. You read that right. You don’t need a standalone wallet anymore.

With phones that get bigger every season, your pockets are getting more occupied. NFC technology and cashless mobile payment apps have slowly eroded the use of cash and coins. Our philosophy of doing more with less drove us to combine the phone and wallet into a centre of utility. Your large phones now have enough real estate on them to hold your most important cards for daily use. It’s time to literally ditch all that extra bulk and carry everything on your most important device - your phone. One less thing to worry about in our busy lives. One less thing to lose or forget.

But, won't I lose my phone and wallet together if I misplace it?

Fact - if you have only 1 thing to take care of, the likelihood of you losing it becomes much lower than if you had 2 or more things to carry. It’s the same reason you almost never misplace your backpack, because it's at the centre of your attention and holds everything important together. Otherwise, it's like saying we should never use rucksacks, keyring, luggage or any other kind of bag for that matter, since if we lose our bags, we lose everything in it.

Your wallet is likely to be more secure when attached to your phone. You have only 1 thing to take care of; the likelihood of you losing it becomes much lower than if you had 2 or more things to hold in your hands and pockets. It’s the same reason you rarely if ever misplace your backpack - because it's the centre of your attention and holds everything important together.

Other reasons why having your phone and wallet together is never a problem.

You are much less likely to forget your phone than your wallet in this day and age. You are much more likely to realise it sooner that your phone is misplaced before your wallet. Phones today are all trackable - if you do misplace it, you can be sure to find it easily with the myriad of tracking apps - Find My iPhone being one of them.

Your phone is actually a lot more expensive to replace than your wallet today. Cards have little value without a pin number and can be quickly cancelled and reported to the authorities. Your phone, however, contains personal information (messages, photographs, videos) that is tremendously more difficult emotionally to replace. Essentially, you are making your wallet safer by having it attached with your phone.

Why choose to back HUSKK?

We represent a new culture on good carrying that is centered around the most important and personal item you carry today - your phone.

We’re definitely not the first phone wallet, but we are happy that people out there finally have a good product that merges functionality and great design with good quality materials to back it up. We’ve seen one too many phone wallets on the market made up of sub-par materials, hold too few cards for daily necessity or are just simply too bulky and lack the design chops to make it desirable as a consumer product.

All that will change if we can hit our funding goals. Please support us!

 1. How can I get QUICKDRAW for IPHONE 6 PLUS or SAMSUNG?

NOTE: QUICKDRAW is available for iPhone 6 NOW.

To help us get your QUICKDRAW iPhone 6 PLUS and SAMSUNG cases into production, pledge $3 and spread the word about our campaign. By pledging you will also get access to all the exclusive updates of this campaign available only to backers. Once we get 500 people on that reward we will initiate the tooling for the iPhone 6 PLUS and SAMSUNG version. 

2. How to get GUARANTEED delivery by Christmas?

Our campaign is designed in such a way that all our products should be delivered to your door by Christmas Day. However we also offer a "Holiday Special" Gift Pledge. These pledges, on top of personalised packaging and initials leather embossing, will get special treatment when it comes to assembly and shipping. (Please see "Holiday Special Rewards")

3. What will prevent cards from falling out?

To keep your cards SAFE & SECURE, we have worked very hard to come up with minimalistic, non-intrusive, durable solution that will last even as the leather stretches over time, as it's a natural material. On the right side of the case you can see a small strap, while in the top right corner we have an a hidden Neodymium magnetic clip, safe for you bank cards and your phone, while preventing your cards from sliding out.

Risks and challenges

While we endeavour to only provide you with the best quality we can afford from our craft, the concept of a phone wallet-case that carries more than just a couple of cards and is created by hand, might involve logistical challenges that are sometimes hard to foresee.

In this age of technology, great craftsmanship is difficult to come by. Great leather? Even more so. Our desire to provide customers with uncompromising standards is both our strength and weakness. Even the slightest shortfall in material quality will be deemed unacceptable by our hawk-eyed product manager, who has had years of experience producing awesome leather carriers for real people and real occasions. Some call us impractical perfectionists. But, we like to think of it as giving back our best to the community that has allowed us to fulfill our purpose in society.

In order to get best in-class materials, we've had to source them globally. Every QUICKDRAW case is stitched with Italian leather, Japanese Neodymium magnet and German Polycarbonate. The diverse nature of our materials requires us to maintain a strong logistical process.

Rest assured though, that we have the best team of manufactory professionals with relevant experience backing this venture. We commit to keep you in the loop throughout the whole process.

Lastly, we expect higher number of orders in preparation for the upcoming festive gifting season, so there may be some normal shipping delays.
