About

2,000 backers pledged $41,000 to our previous project Kii RING - An Effortless Key Ring.  Our products received rave reviews from many backers.  We are proud to be back with another extraordinary product.  Introducing: 

Not much bigger than the credit card it is built to carry, the extremely compact WYN can hold up to ten cards plus cash and receipts. It is constructed of exquisite carbon fiber, which is lightweight, strong and durable. The WYN Minimalist Wallet allows for fast card access, is completely secure, and is simply eye-catching.

 

 

 

 

If you want to comfortably carry more cards and cash, access them faster while shredding the bulk then the WYN Minimalist Wallet is perfect for you.

"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication" - Leonardo da Vinci

WYN is an advanced twist on the bulk of a wallet that bulges uncomfortably in your back pocket. Phones have evolved; they are smaller, easier to use and carry, so why not wallets? That is why we created WYN, a wallet not much thicker than the actual credit cards it is built to carry. WYN slips easily into any pocket, whether it be on your shirt or on your pants. It is so lightweight that you will not even notice it is there. You will find that WYN is the most comfortable wallet you have ever owned.

WYN is only as thick as the amount of credit card you carry, whether it is 3 cards or 10 cards.  It is only 0.5 oz., about the weight of two US quarters.

While being extremely compact WYN is still incredibly functional. It has all the functionality of a full size wallet such as holding cash and receipts. WYN also offers the added benefits of easy access to your most used cards, fast payments with card chips and full card view for phone orders. All of this happens quickly and effortless with just one hand

WYN's exquisite carbon fiber material and modern design makes it the perfect wallet for every occasion. It is comfortable during work, secure and lightweight for active wear, durable for the outdoors, and compliments any attire from casual to formal

DURABLE: Carbon fiber is used in aerospace and performance cars, well known for its superior properties of strength, flexibility and lightness.  We have spent countless hours perfecting WYN's design. There are no rubber bands, straps, screws or latches to wear or break over time. 

SECURE: WYN's innovative, patent pending design straddles both sides and applies just the right amount of pressure to keep your cards and cash securely in place.  They also stop the cards from moving side to side.  

 

 

 

   

 

 

 

  

  

I had a car accident in 2015 and went to see a chiropractor. I complained about my back pain which seemed to be getting worse. He took some measurements and the results showed that my right side is about half an inch shorter than my left side. He told me it was the result of sitting on my leather wallet year after year. Many of his clients have had the same problem and they never even suspected that their wallet was the cause of the pain.   

I started taking my wallet out of my back pocket before I would sit down. It was too big to comfortably fit in any of my other pockets. It was such an inconvenience and sometimes I forgot my wallet. I knew I had to find a better solution.  I wanted a wallet that was compact but didn't restrict the amount of cards or cash I could carry.  I wanted something simple yet functional while easy to use. I wanted a wallet that is cool, elegant and sophisticated so that I would be proud to carry it.  What I didn't want was any rubber bands, straps, screws or latches. 

In early 2016 I had an aha moment and conceived a design for a wallet that meets all of the requirements, and more. We spent a lot of time refining the design using different materials and manufacturing processes. We tested plastic, aluminum, titanium and finally settled with carbon fiber. We ordered material from different factories and tested them. We've been using the WYN wallet for many months and we LOVE it. 

We guarantee you will love WYN too!

Risks and challenges

Our previous project Kii RING - An Effortless Key Ring was successfully funded on Kickstarter in September 2016 with close to 2,000 backers and $42,000 in funding. We were able to deliver all pledges despite a few production delays. Our products received many positive feedback from our backers.

We learned a lot from our previous experiences. Manufacturing is already set up and ready to go. Fulfillment channel is established. All rewards are expected to ship in July 2018. While we do not expect any changes in delivery dates, that possibility does exist.

Our main goal is to deliver a high quality product in a timely manner.
