About

Presa™ is both a finely-crafted leather wallet and a universal smartphone accessory. Its patent pending method grabs your phone without any compromise in style and performance. Our passion to create this unique wallet has brought us from an idea to the finished product you see here. At last, a mobile wallet that looks and feels like an actual wallet, yet fits every smartphone.

  • ONE SIZE FITS ALL - Fits all major smartphones.
  • SUPERIOR FINISH - Beautiful materials. Sleek, slim, and lightweight.
  • ULTRA-COMPACT - Phone and wallet all in the palm of your hand.
  • EASY ON, EASY OFF - The Grip Strap™ flexes to easily grab any smartphone within its reach.
  • THREE SLOTS - Carry as little you want or as much as you can.
  • VERSATILITY - For business, a movie, or a ballgame, the Presa™ wallet is at its best when you're on the move.
  • TAILOR-MADE IN THE U.S.A.

Secure fit keeps your essentials together at all times.

Traveling light takes on a new meaning with the Presa™ wallet.

Phone, wallet, and coffee. What else do you need?

The wallet is barely noticeable and keeps your screen usable at all times.

This is why we created Presa™
This is why we created Presa™

We immediately began working on this project after an exhaustive search for a mobile wallet frustrated us with a parade of plastic cases and pleather folios. About 95% of what we saw wasn't compatible with our phones. Looking at smartphone accessories made for someone else's phone is a tremendous waste of time, and as disappointed consumers, we wanted a better solution. So we set out to create it!

Each hook contains a scratch-resistant interior radius and is anchored to the wallet center by a pliable strap. When a phone is slipped in between, the hooks are pulled away from the anchor creating an inward resistance for grip. The tip of the hooks secure the phone in place by pulling back on the front edge of the screen creating a "locking" effect.

This test strap provided us with key information for the Grip Strap™ and its potential range of functions. It held every smartphone we could test it on.

We then attached the test strap to a dummy wallet for function and sizing purposes. This ended up being our first rough prototype.

After flushing out the mechanics of the wallet, we switched to fabrication as we steadily revised sample after sample until we had one that embodied our vision of a fine mobile wallet.

Presa™ utilizes full-grain Napa leather sourced from the wine country in California. Our leather choice has a soft yet durable hand, with a lightweight, sleek and attractive finish. Through precision machining, we utilized a high-quality, thin-gauge and lightweight aluminum to provide an optimal blend of durability and performance. Tailor-made by artisans in the U.S.A.

The classy minimalist wallet that has served recent generations so well has been given new life as the finest mobile wallet a phone has ever seen.

Your backing and support will enable us to meet minimum order quantities for our initial run of Presa™ wallets. We have already covered much of the production and material costs up to this point, but are still in need of such items as additional tooling for dyes and molds, manufacturing setup costs, additional R&D, intellectual property enhancements, and marketing. 

Your support would be greatly appreciated and very useful! If you are unable to contribute a Pledge at this time, we thank you kindly for your support and for helping to spread the word of this exciting new product to your friends, family, and coworkers!

Risks and challenges

The challenges that we have had to face in creating a first-to-market product have been challenging yet rewarding. There was no blueprint for a universal smartphone fitting wallet so we had to develop it from scratch from concept to ideation, modeling to testing as well as procurement of raw materials for R&D to develop our the initial prototypes. Along the way we've established solid working relationships with suppliers, vendors and manufacturers who helped bring our product to life and throughout this period we've solidified our belief in our ability to deliver this product to market.

We, along with our supply chain team, have created and established a quality standard by which the scaled manufacturing process will be founded on. Our planning will include contingencies in efforts to manage any risks involved in production as well as counter measures in case of any unforeseen delays. Our aim is to be proactive in providing information and updates with regards to the fulfillment phase of the project as well as with delivery. With over fourteen years of broad range project management experience and our make-it-happen attitudes, we are confident in meeting and exceeding our project delivery goals and most especially our backers expectations.
