The Novo Design : Luxury Metal Wallets

$10,975

84

 The Novo Design metal wallet was designed to make sorting and using your wallet as efficient and attractive as possible by integrating a Core machined from solid aluminum with a hand formed stainless steel Vise.  

The Core guides and organizes your belongings while the Vise clamps them securely.

With a purpose of celebrating metalworking it was necessary to avoid the use cheap elastic bands, o-rings and fasteners for a slim and seamless exterior.

That is where your help as early backers comes in. It is crucial for us to purchase our aluminum stock and stainless steel in larger quantities to sell them at a reduced price. The goal of $9,000 will go directly to materials and machine tooling used to cut the metal. Aluminum and steel cost much more than the traditional wallet materials and that is even before they are cut and machined!

What distinguishes The Novo Design metal wallets from the rest?

- Organize your wallet by holding only essential cards and minimal cash when absolutely necessary.

- No money clip for reduced clutter.

- Streamlined design for front pocket.

- Dual slot design prevents all cards from pulling out at the same time.

- The unique dual pocket design allows for easy access to multiple cards both on the outside and the inside.

- The vise height allows you to flex cards outward and retrieve desired card from anywhere in the wallet.

- The wallet measures at 3.3″ x 2.43″ x 0.45″, just barely larger than the 6-10 cards it holds.

- Each slot will hold single card.

We are Stan and Joe Waidelich, father and son, craftsman and designer/engineer, born and raised in Minnesota.  The concept of The Novo Design was born in my dad’s, Stan’s, workshop. I developed my own wallet by utilizing my design experience and the shop resources.  After sharing my wallets with interested friends and acquaintances, I decided that I wanted to share the wallet collection with all of you. People that are interested in highlighting their own individual essence with a one of a kind minimalist luxury wallet.
