About this project

Where’s Wallet is…

1) The Wallet You’ll Never Lose

Thanks to cutting edge technology, each wallet features a thin, unobtrusive sensor, so you never have to replace your wallet, or its contents, ever again. 

2) Easy to Operate

Download the free Where’s Wallet app, set a notification range, and your phone/wallet will beep to alert you the moment you step beyond the preset range. Use the app to guide you back, and you’ll find your wallet, safe and sound.

3) Stylish

Available in 3 classic designs: the slip, bi-fold and clutch. Each wallet is constructed with 100% vegetable-tanned leather: a rich, full grain leather that establishes a handsome, distinct patina as it ages. 

4) Affordable

Starting at $49, you’ll receive a sturdy, vegetable-tanned leather wallet with a classic, understated look. More than a durable, visually appealing accessory, it seamlessly integrates innovative sensor technology so that you’ll never lose it again. 

Our Story

MIJLO arose from a desire to build an essential collection of well-designed goods - a collection established with A Better Backpack and The Everyday Watch. After a pair of successful Kickstarter campaigns, our focus shifted to the most essential of items: The Wallet. 

Why a Wallet? 

The wallet is a crucial everyday accessory that carries our most important belongings: ID, health card, credit card, bank card, and cash. If misplaced, the fallout is not just costly, it’s time consuming. 

After months of discussion and careful research, our design team settled on two key points: 

  • Every wallet should be impossible to lose.
  • Every wallet should be simply designed and easy to use.

The result is a well designed wallet that blends understated style with practical, user-friendly technology. 

Easy to Operate, Impossible to Lose

Rewards 

Minimal design and cutting edge technology are a hallmark of all 3 models, including:

The Slip: $49 on Kickstarter

The Slip features three slim card pockets and a larger slot for cash. Smart, simple and thin, it is made with 100% full grain, vegetable-tanned leather and stitched with high abrasion nylon. Each edge is hand-sealed to prevent excess wear. 

The Bi-fold: $69 on Kickstarter

For those in need of a little more space, the Bi-fold is large enough to carry daily essentials and slim enough to reduce pocket bulk. Made with 100% full grain, vegetable-tanned leather, its natural patina will develop a unique look over time while retaining its original hue. 

The Clutch: $99 on Kickstarter

The Clutch is an understated, versatile piece fit for a variety of occasions. Made with a rich, pebbled leather, each piece features subtle gold accents and is precision-stitched with high abrasion nylon thread.

App Features

Quick, Effortless Set Up

Download your free Where’s Wallet app and activate it in seconds. 

Set Your Notification Range

After you’ve activated the app, set a notification range, and your phone will alert you the moment you step beyond the preset range.

Retrieve Your Wallet

Navigate your way back with the distance meter, which tracks your proximity to the wallet. Activate Where’s Wallet’s audio sensor to locate it quickly. 

Out of Range Alert

The moment you step out of range, your wallet will beep and trigger a phone alert for swift recovery.  

Location Last Seen

If you happen to turn off the notification range and your wallet is misplaced, you can view its last known location to retrace your steps. 

Wallet Specs

Upcoming Features

We love the current incarnation of Where’s Wallet, but a product that pairs with a mobile app allows us to improve and enhance the original model as we see fit. Here are a handful of potential features we’d like to include in the near future:

Radar Tracking

Locate your wallet with increased speed and accuracy. Radar tracking capabilities allow us to enhance a variety of search tools, including an upgraded version of our app’s “Locate” function. 

Location-Based Smart Settings

Create custom notification ranges for home, work, or anywhere you’d like, and our app will automatically adjust the range when you arrive. 

Phone Finder

If you’ve lost your phone, activate its ringtone with a quick shake to locate it promptly. 

Apple Watch Compatibility

Apple Watch’s wrist tap capabilities are a natural fit for Where’s Wallet. This intuitive technology will tap your wrist the moment you exceed the preset notification barrier, and promptly guide you to the misplaced accessory with directional vibrations. 

Where’s Wallet? You Tell Us! 

MIJLO has created an interactive game that enables players to track down Where’s Wallet and earn a handful of MIJLO extras. Up to the challenge? Explore the illustrated map to find our wallet and 25 tech icons like Mark Zuckerberg, Myspace Tom, Angry Birds, and Dancing Baby.

Risks and challenges

With experience comes wisdom. This is our third go-round on Kickstarter, so any hiccups in the months to come should be minimal. If something does go awry, we promise to be transparent about any potential obstacles, including these:

THE EVENT OF OUTRAGEOUS DEMAND
This happens from time to time on Kickstarter, so we’ve made sure that our manufacturing partners are prepared to take on additional units.

SHIPMENT
We're shipping our products through the mail, which means there is general risk in the reliability of shipping companies. However, we'll make sure that we keep track of your order at all times and communicate its progress openly to you.

OUR PLEDGE
The staff at MIJLO has spent months upon months making sure that we get this right; that we’ve built something that’s going to last. We’re aware that you’re a massive part of our mission, and we want you to know that we’ll do whatever it takes to be at the forefront of this industry. Thank you for all of your support and welcome aboard!
