About this project

After having medication fall out of my pocket, receipts crumpled or lost, and wishing I had a stick of gum before going to an important meeting, I knew there needed to be a sleeker, better way to carry around valuables.

Introducing Vessel Wallet™ - A sophisticated, innovative, luxury design that’s simple to use and simple to choose.

Vessel is a slim, minimalist wallet with a sliding storage tray built into its body. Store your receipts, pills, memory cards, condoms, photos, and more in a compartment you know is secure.

 

Scroll through cards with a downward swiping motion, and upward to remove. Accessing your cards is extremely quick, intuitive and leaves onlookers with a sense of curiosity and jealousy.

The cards are securely held in the wallet by a gentle squeezing pressure on the edges.

  

 

The concealed protective compartment is great for holding medication, birth control, paper money, coins, keys, candy, gum, or any other small object. Store whatever you need for the day ahead.

  Slide the tray out by pushing on either side.

 

The money clip secures cash and is easily removable for a slimmer feel.

 

The Vessel Wallet™ is machined from aircraft grade aluminum, making it lightweight and durable. The outer aluminum shell is finished with a bead blast polished type III hard anodized coating, which is often used in military grade equipment for its strength and scratch resistance qualities. The center plate and clip are finished in three different accent colors, with more color options available if the stretch goal is reached:

 

 

 

Cards are held firmly in place using our patent pending design.

Quick chip payments

Single swipe RFID access.

  Scratch resistant.

 

Vessel's aircraft grade aluminum body is sleek with a smooth finish and rounded corners, allowing it to easily slide into your pocket. The wallet's design was inspired by the intuitive swiping motion we use on smartphones. Vessel's minimalist design has no mechanical components and is held together by 4 miniature hex head screws.
