Right, these are ace. I know from personal experience that finding a decent slim wallet, one which is both small enough to fit nicely in your pocket and that actually looks decent, is tricky business. Up step these forward thinking little things from the good people at Mowbray Leather Goods. This is TROVE.
On sale since last month, the back story behind these genius little things is pretty cool. Determined to make their hometown renowned for something other than delicious, pastry coated, leftover pig’s bits, a year of research and development was undertaken by the Mowbray Leather Goods people. Eventually and with the backing from a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign – receiving over 700 hundred pledges from around the world and the team consuming nearly as many pork pies during the process – a use was finally found for all the offcuts left over at this traditional British leather producer’s headquarters. Quite similar to how the pork pie was invented, probably.
With a myriad of different ways to use this product, these “wallets” (they aren’t just wallets really) hold your oyster card, cash card, scratty fivers, headphones and sheaths securely but can also operate as a phone stand for when you’re watching Andy Tate vines to pass the time on a train journey.
So; they look good, they work in a way which makes you question why the hell something like this didn’t already exist, they were funded by the people instead of some soulless conglomerate, they’re Made In Britain and, thanks to using bits of material found on the floor which would normally just get binned, they’re environmentally friendly.
Enough talk. Track their journey through this cool little picture story and then get involved via the link below.
