Kisetsu's cut-away corners
Kisetsu's cut-away corners

 We don't cut corners when it comes to the design, but the wallet literally has cut-away corners to improve structural rigidity.

Zipless Coin and Utility Compartment
Zipless Coin and Utility Compartment

 The tuck-in-and-out flap mechanism, also a signature of the brand, is another crafty idea to reduce thickness that a conventional zip brings. Psst, this compartment also sports a SIM card slot and SD card slot.

You'll always have a pen
You'll always have a pen

 Each Kaizen wallet comes with its own aluminium travel pen (and refill!) to keep you covered in all situations.

Store your cards in the right compartments
Store your cards in the right compartments

Quick pull-out compartment for your less used cards and a quick access compartment for your most used card.

Utility cash compartment

 And of course, the "must-have" cash compartment. It also features two additional card slots.

 The wallet measures just 8.2cm x 10cm when closed, making it the perfect fit in your hand, and even your front pocket!

Features At A Glance

Every wallet is RFID protected (with one card compartment on the left non-RFID for easy daily commuting). It fits 8-10 cards, US bills, has a unique zipless compartment for coins (with a designated SD + SIM card slot inside) and finally, an aluminium travel pen that comes with every wallet.

Materials 

The wallet is made from Crazy Horse Leather, a signature of Kisetsu and our top selling leather variant for the last couple of years. Despite what its name suggests, Crazy Horse Leather is actually full grain cowhide that has been specially treated with wax to create its unique aesthetic and quality. Buff out light scratches and watch the colour change as you bend the leather - Crazy Horse Leather is a super durable and popular alternative to mainstream leathers.

Crazy Horse Leather also develops a patina faster than other leathers, ageing beautifully through daily use. Check out the diagram below to see how it transforms from a matte uneven colouring to a glossy, smooth and even finish.

 Available in 4 colour ways, choose from Graphite Black, Wine, Vintage Brown and Steel Blue (left to right).

RFID blocking fabric - Protect yourself from unauthorized scammers that could steal your credit card information. The wallet is double lined with RFID fabric, ensuring that you stay protected out and about. For easy daily commuting, make use of the non-RFID card slot behind the coin compartment to tap your transport cards.

About Kisetsu

We're Team Kisetsu, and we've been fiddling and tinkering with product design for 5 years now. We retail our products on our website. Till date, we've sold about 80,000 wallets worldwide. (Thank you all for the support!) 

You might also remember us from our previous campaigns: 

We're committed to what we do and we love doing it. We can't wait to get the Kaizen Wallet into your hands. We promise you'll love it just as much as we do.

Risks and challenges

Meeting deadlines - One of the major concerns regarding the production timeline is that the manufacturing period falls in the Chinese Lunar New Year period, when many factories are closed for the holidays. We're aiming to put in our order before the year closes so as to receive and deliver the wallets on time, but delays may occur if there are unexpected circumstances from the factory's end.

Uncontrollable risks/delays - Should there be any delays, it would be in the stages of manufacturing and QC; We need to make sure that the wallets meet the right manufacturing and safety standards before delivering them to you!

Team Kisetsu strives to attain the highest level of customer satisfaction through on time delivery, as well as bringing quality products to you. We will make sure that our team puts in 101% to do as much as we can while taking the necessary measures to avoid any delay on the delivery of the Kaizen wallet to all of our backers!
