About this project
When designing the Range wallet we wanted to perfect aesthetics, function, and feel. We believe that less is more and crafting with your hands is a respectable trade. Range wallets are designed to be functional, accessible, and durable all while wearing in, not out. We've angled the card slots to provide quick access, designed our layouts to be easy to navigate and sourced the highest quality leather from Horween Leather Co.
Range wallets are cut, stitched, stamped, beveled, and burnished here in the USA. We craft each wallet by hand, focusing on the details to ensure the quality of each product passing through our doors.
Since reaching our first stretch goal, the Range wallet can be crafted in your choice of Black (top left), Golden Honey (bottom left), Maple (top right) and Cognac (bottom right). After the project is successfully funded, you will receive a survey where you will choose the color of premium Horween Leather that will then be used for your Range wallet.
The Men's minimalist features both a horizontal and vertical card slot. Simply slide your thumb to remove cards then flip the wallet to access the vertical slot. This wallet is easy to navigate and is available with an optional money slit. The men's minimalist holds between 3-5 cards and measures approximately 4 in x 2.5 in x 1/3 in when filled with 4 cards.
Often times the idea of minimalist wallets are just thought of for men but we've designed one for women too. Both simple and sleek, the upright design of the women's minimalist features additional pockets, a money pouch, cover and clasp. There is great flexibility with how you fill your women's wallet. Cards can be entered in the back two slots both vertically and horizontally while receipts, bills and cash can be stored in the back pouch. The women's minimalist holds between 3-7 cards and measures approximately 4 in x 3.5 in x 1/2 in when filled with 5 cards.
Our Range Kickstarter bracelet is a single cut of the finest leather and contains a brushed gold clasp. This bracelet can be added on to any pledge by increasing your pledge amount by $10 or can be backed alone as our lowest pledge level. The bracelet measures 2/3 of an inch wide and comes in small (7in), medium (7.5in), large (8in), and extra large (8.5in).
We will ship in the late Spring of 2015. Here is our delivery schedule:
March: Kickstarter launch
April: Order materials & begin crafting wallets
May 10th: Early backer delivery in time for Mother's Day
June: Regular backer delivery
Our desire to release this project on Kickstarter comes from the amazing community that supports startups, entrepreneurs, and local manufacturing. We've personally experienced this support in a previous project and have heard many testimonies on the power of Kickstarter's backers. We also plan to use the funds to place a large order of hides from Horween Leather Co as well as buy some additional equipment and tools.

Risks and challenges
Every project encounters its share of challenges but because Range Leather Co. crafts our wallets by hand, we don’t face collaboration with a factory. After developing a relationship that lets us source directly from the Horween tannery, we are confident in our ability to secure the highest quality leather. A logistic challenge that often arrises with Kickstarter projects is delivering rewards on schedule. To insure this we have streamlined the crafting of our wallets, added options for early backers and are confident we will meet our delivery deadlines. However, the largest challenge we foresee is gaining traction to meet our goal. Often times awesome projects don't succeed simply due to lack of exposure. Here we ask for your help! If you can't back our project please share it (link just below video on the top of this page) and if you can we know you'll be satisfied with your Range wallet.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
