About this project
We set out to create the ultimate wallet to keep men’s most essential belongings safe. A no-compromises wallet that you will never lose. A smart wallet that protects your valuable cash and cards in every situation.
Woolet combines the best of technology with skilled handcrafting.
Impossible to Lose
Miniature sensors synchronize with your smartphone to protect you in 5 different ways. Whatever the situation, you don’t need to worry.
Just 9.9mm thin, yet packed with cutting-edge technology. Designed so you can live with less bulk.
Woolet is always good to go. No expensive or difficult-to-find battery replacements.
Built to Last
Woolet is tough. We chose only quality, durable leather sourced from local suppliers.
Ready for World Currencies
Large enough for all major currencies - dollars, euros or British pounds. You’re ready for any trip with Woolet.
No Losing Your Phone, Too
Woolet's 2-way security means you also get alerts when you leave your phone behind.
In Two Colors
Available in sleek black and classic suede to fit your style.
Woolet is your smart wallet sidekick. It looks out for your valuables so you can worry less, and focus on the important things instead.
- iOS and Android apps. Stretch goal: Windows Phone app.
- For Bluetooth 4.0 and 4.1 enabled phones.
- Woolet RFID Blocking Sleeve, Woolet Phone Cover, and Woolet Key Finder bonus rewards!
Synchronize Woolet with your phone and you’re good to go. The app is free and takes just seconds to set up.
Left your wallet behind? Someone trying to steal it? With Woolet, you’ll immediately know. Your phone will ring the moment you are separated from Woolet. You can specify any distance between 20-85 feet (6-25m) to get automatic alerts.
TRACKER TO FIND WOOLET
Misplaced Woolet somewhere nearby? Use the built-in distance tracker. You’ll know how far away your Woolet is and if you’re getting closer. Accurate to within 0.4m. There’s no hiding your Woolet from you.
WOOLET TO FIND IT
Lost your wallet under the car seat? Maybe behind the couch? Get it to ring with the tap of a finger. Finding your Woolet is always super simple.
Don’t remember the last place you had your wallet? Woolet does. Your phone automatically records the last location it saw your Woolet. That means you already know the best place to start looking.
If your Woolet is ever lost, you can activate the Woolet crowd detection network. With a simple press on your phone, every other Woolet user will start scanning for your lost Woolet. When they get within range, the GPS location is instantly updated to your phone.
NEVER LOSE YOUR PHONE, TOO
Left your phone behind but have Woolet? Woolet itself will ring to let you know. Woolet has a built-in ringer so protection goes both ways when you step beyond the tether distance you set. No more leaving behind your smartphone.
SLIM AND FULLY CAPABLE
Woolet is just 9.9mm thin, yet ready for anything. Unlike other smart wallets, Woolet is a ‘full wallet’. This means you don’t need to compromise on what you take. Woolet has 4 slots to accommodate all your cards. There is a large card slot for those bigger IDs (up to 70 x 100mm) and a hidden pocket. Woolet also comfortably fits larger banknotes, including euros and British pounds, so you’re ready for any country.
BATTERIES, UNLIMITED ENDURANCE
Batteries are an essential component of any smart device. They are also often its weakest component. That’s why we designed self-charging batteries to provide dependable power that lasts. We are currently testing recharging by movement and body heat. We will update you with the implementation we choose.
HANDCRAFTED BY MASTERS
Your wallet gets more use than almost any other accessory. That’s we've partnered with some incredibly skilled artisans to produce Woolet. Every Woolet is made from the finest hand-dressed calf leather. Choose from sleek black with red stitching or supple suede with orange lining.
RFID BLOCKING SLEEVE
Prevent anyone reading your RFID-enabled cards to steal your cash or identity. Woolet's card sleeve offers RFID-skimming protection by blocking out 100% of the signals. Walk without worrying about someone casually reading your card while walking by.
A key finder with all the same capabilities as Woolet, including a self-charging battery. Made from the same high-quality leather as Woolet and available in black and brown. Attach it to your key ring and you'll never lose or misplace your keys again!
Protect your phone from scratches and drops with the Woolet phone covers. It comes in 2 sizes for 4.7" and 5.5" phones. It is perfect for iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, and similarly sized phones. Made from the same high-quality leather as Woolet and available in black and brown.
After many months toiling in the engineering laboratory and the tanner, Woolet was born.
When cutting-edge technology meets the finest artisan handcrafting.
Woolet grew out of a shared passion for security, hardware and beautiful design. We are driven to give our most precious belongings the best high-tech security in beautiful, simple devices.

Risks and challenges
No one wants to see a good idea executed badly. We have worked extremely hard over the last months to deliver a product you will love and we can be proud of. As this is our third time launching a product on Kickstarter, issues should also be minimal.
The main challenges ahead:
Creating Woolet’s simple user experience requires engineering a complex system. To make sure we get this right, we have assembled an experienced team of engineers and designers. We have already built 3 generations of prototypes. Currently, we are producing the first batch to test with users.
Taking prototypes to mass production involves sophisticated logistics and relationships with suppliers. To minimize these risks, we have been negotiating with suppliers (including backup suppliers), testing component quality, and building a team that can execute on our promises. Our plans are nearly in place, and we require the resources to ensure we achieve this.
