The Union wallet is slim, made from a unique wood piece, and elegantly carries your essentials.


MEET THE UNION WALLET

The Union Wallet is a minimalist wood wallet that carries your cards, cash, and small miscellaneous essentials in an elegant slim profile shell. It is designed as a slim alternative to leather, elastic, or metal wallets - with the look and feel only wood can bring. Without sacrificing function.

MODERN ESSENTIALS

The Union wallet hold your essentials comfortably. With elastic slits that will allow you to securely carry small neccessities, such as an SD card or a spare key. Downsizing your pocket has never been this easy.

Union wallet can hold up to six cards for the pure card-carrying minimalist.

Use it as an emergency coin holder minus the jingling.

Keep things simple, by placing your most frequently used card at the front, to stop you from fumbling at the till.

WOOD X ELASTOMER

With innovative use of injection molded elastomer, we are able to create a slim wood wallet with all the desirable function of a minimalist wallet. The Union wallet measures 9mm (0.35") thick. With width and length of 71mm (2.8") and 101mm (4.0") respectively.

RFID SHIELDING

The Union wallet is fitted with an RFID blocking aluminium plate below the wood surface - to help shield your RF contactless cards from skimmers.

TIMELESS

Wood being one the planet's oldest raw material will age gracefully, unlike the familiar tired old leather.

SECURE & EASY ACCESS

The Union wallet is designed to securely hold your cards even as you're pulling them out. We love minimalist wallet but dislike fumbling through the stack of cards, and on rare occassions dropping the mess on the floor.

MEET CHERRY & WALNUT

Our two wood selections. Warm cherry and dark walnut, are well known for their durability and resistance to decay. More importantly our wood is harvested from responsibly managed and sustainable forests.

RESPONSIBILITY

We believe in our (and your) responsiblity for the planet. With every Union wallet sold, we will be planting a tree with the good folks at plantabillion.org - to help offset carbon footprints created in manufacturing and distribution. Our packaging will be made from paper/cardboards, so at the other end you'll be able to do your part - and recycle every bit of unwanted packaging.

PRODUCTION SCHEDULE

After a few months of intensive prototyping, we have arrived at a finalised form/function that we are satisfied with. With a successful demand at Indiegogo, we will rapidly move to manufacturing plans and delivery.

  • May: Final product refinements.
  • June: Finalise manufacturing requirements & place order.
  • July: Quality control procedure.
  • August: Final QC checks and delivery.

RISK & CHALLENGES

We have dedicated countless of hours working together with our experienced manufacturer, trying to mitigate as much risks in all aspects of the product. Although we understand that there will be unexpected challenges along the way, we are confident that we will be able to deliver as per our projected plan. We will keep things transparent and inform our supporters of any hurdles/delay along the way.
