A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

The Ultimate Slim Wallet and card case is back
We're back on Kickstarter with another innovative upgrade. Your TROVE is still minimal, it’s still slim and strong, but now it’s more versatile than ever before.
Our kickstarter supporters are always the first to carry our latest wallets, and to say thanks for being at the front of the queue we’re offering early bird supporters 50% off.
The Cash Wrap works on its own to carry cash, cards, notes, tickets, keys and accessories, or as an addition to the original TROVE Wallet and TROVE Swift wallets to carry even more.
The Cash Wrap folds around the elastic cardholder with pull tab, or your existing TROVE wallet, to give you quick access to your cards. An elastic strap secures everything you're carrying inside.
Lovingly crafted by experts with the world's finest materials
TROVE is handmade in the UK at one of the last remaining leather goods factories. Whether you choose 100% vegetable tanned full grain Tuscan leather, or non-leather alternatives, every TROVE features precision woven Italian elastic to make your wallet durable and lightweight.
Vegan-friendly performance materials in our stretch goals include our Reflex range made with micro glass beads bonded to a polyester/cotton fabric base and genuine RFID blocking Carbon Fibre, produced using a patented process in the USA.
Why is it better than your bulky wallet?
TROVE products are designed with minimal carry in mind to make your life more streamlined and hassle-free.
Just like our previous TROVE products, the Cash Wrap can hold a lot while staying compact. Organise up to ten cards in different compartments and use the built in pocket for coins.
Quick access to your Cash and Cards
Use the pull tab to access your most-used cards without opening the Cash Wrap, or access cash FAST without unfolding the whole wrap. The Cash Wrap is designed to fit British £50 notes, which are larger than most international currency.
Already carrying a TROVE Wallet or TROVE Swift? Combine it with the Cash Wrap to carry more.
Alternatively, use the Cash Wrap on its own with the supplied elastic card holder and pull tab, or even separate the two for an ultra-minimalist card case in one hand and a Cash Wrap body in the other - one product, two ways of carrying.
Already have a TROVE Swift wallet?
Your TROVE. Your way.
We have a great range of colours right off the bat and the opportunity to get 50% off as an early bird supporter.
We've got some exciting new materials available as stretch rewards so be sure to check back for Carbon Fibre and extra vegan-friendly Reflex colours.

Risks and challenges
As an established manufacturer, we have been producing TROVE wallets ourselves for over 4 years, we do not foresee any significant problems or delays. However, as with any project, there are always risks and challenges to be aware of.
If our TROVE Cash Wrap project is funded we will endeavor to fulfill all of our rewards on time, just as we have done with our last TWO CAMPAIGNS.
There is the possibility of delays from our suppliers that might be out of our control but we have worked hard with each of them in the lead up to this campaign so they are prepared to make our order requirements on time. Many of the kinks and foreseeable production problems have been solved during our prototyping and testing phases. In order to maximize our delivery performance, we have set limits on certain reward tiers so that our products can be shipped on time. However delays can sometimes occur during transport.
You will receive 20 TROVE Cash Wraps in the leather and elastic colour combination of your choice from our standard colour range (choose after campaign ends), we will also brand your supplied logo design on the Cash Wrap. Not offered for retail.
