Our initial idea
The whole idea came about due to the frequent travel between countries and cities. For each trip, we will have a tendency to switch to a smaller wallet bringing only the necessities, leaving the regular wallet at home.
With that, we started looking for a minimalist wallet which also a travel wallet. However, the biggest problem is what do you do with your coins?
As some countries have lots of coins but some don't. And most small minimalist wallet does not allow you to put your coins securely.
With that in mind, we then began to develop a small-sized, minimalist wallet that can be used every day for holding cards, cash, and coins with ease. And our first wallet, Ed: The Perfect Minimalist is born!
And we are grateful it has received great responses from Kickstarter!
Ed had a long journey, to begin with, first, we began prototyping it with different type of leathers such as crazy horse leather, full-grain leather, and even vegetable-tanned leather. And we have to factor in that the leather can overcome long-term usage ensuring its durability. Getting the right dimension was tough as well, where we want a wallet that can fit coins, bills, and cards but yet remains to be slim and minimalist.
