TROVE 2.0: The Swift - Slim Wallet & Card Case by TROVE

£34,375

894

Hello again Kickstarters!

It has been three years since we launched TROVE: The Ultimate Slim Wallet on Kickstarter, and thanks to our backers TROVE was successfully funded. The community of fans we have built up through Kickstarter has helped us to achieve more than we have ever imagined to be possible with our wallet, and this has inspired us to build on our success and expand on our range of products. We wanted to stay true to where we started so we have come back to Kickstarter to launch the next generation of TROVE Wallets.

Introducing TROVE Swift

Over the last two years we have gone though many iterations of experimenting, creating and testing different configurations to find ways to make our wallet better. The challenge was to keep with our minimalist design whilst adding useful functionality. We believe we have now found our TROVE 2.0: The Swift!

Our backers and customers over the last three years have given a lot of feedback on the TROVE Wallet, they love the versatility of having 3 separate compartments, the quality of materials and workmanship and the compact and minimalist aesthetics. The TROVE Swift retains all of the qualities our customers love about the original wallet and adds a quick access pull-tab. We know everyone has that one card that they use everyday more than others, and we wanted to improve the speed and accessibility by adding the Swift pull-tab.

 

 

Development of TROVE Swift

The search for a follow-up product to our original wallet started shortly after our first Kickstarter campaign. We looked at different constructions and modifications to the wallet, which were all tried and tested for everyday use. After going through various iterations we found ourselves being drawn back to the simplicity of our original design combined with a tactile pull tab because it was the one feature that we missed when it wasn't present. 

THE PULL-TAB 

We tested different materials to use for the ribbon and pull-tab, experimenting with leathers, plastics, rubbers and even carbon-fibre. Through a process of elimination, we found the best combination of materials in a polyester ribbon and metal tab. Both of which have been custom made in Italy to meet our specific requirements of usability, aesthetics, strength, and durability. The ribbon has been made to balance perfectly between strength and weight, it is only 0.3mm thick whilst being incredibly strong and durable. The Swift tab has also been custom-made with a rubberized coating to increase grip.

Your Support

The production of our original TROVE Wallet has been in full swing over the last two years, every TROVE is made in our own factory in Melton Mowbray, England, however components for the Swift requires upfront tooling costs which will be required for mass production. So far we have been able to get some sets of development prototypes from our suppliers, the next step for us is to place a volume order with our Italian hardware supplier. With your help on this campaign we will be able to pay for the mold charges involved and place a full production order. If we reach our stretch goals we will be able to offer more colourways.

We want to give our backers in the Kickstarter community the opportunity to be the first to own a TROVE Swift. We are offering Super Early Birds a 50% saving on our retail price.

Risks and challenges

As an established manufacturer, we have been producing TROVE wallets ourselves for nearly 3 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 Swift project is funded we will endeavor to fulfill all of our rewards on time, just as we have done with our original campaign. 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.
