GrearMoose - Most minimalist wallets are so minimal by design, that they’re payload is limited to only several cards and one or two bills.  For the rest of us, there is the Stretch Wallet.

Stretch™ comes in many color options

First small test run & consistent elastic colors

We did a small test run of Stretch™ with some available colors we found at local shops. This test gave us a lot of great feedback on the wallet. People loved them, some people even came back to buy more. In order to have a consistent supply of colors we need to order in a large quantity; that's why we are here on Kickstarter.

Thanks so much for all your support

Risks and challenges

We have high standards and would not settle for just okay. We worked with a few manufacturers until we got it just right. We wanted the Stretch™ wallet to be perfect and last for years.

We are now working with two professional manufacturers in our home state of Massachusetts. This will let us easily oversee production and will also cut down on shipping time.

We believe that we can make good on our delivery time but unexpected things do happen. We will personally be in charge of assembling and shipping all of the pledge rewards. If complications do arise we will do everything we can to bring you a Stretch™ wallet in a timely manner.
