Tri-Vek: A Tyvek Wallet redesigned
A super minimal wallet, durable and compact. Most Tyvek material wallets have the problems of being crumpled due to their sizes being bigger than credit cards. Tri-Vek is designed in a way to prevent this flaw.
One of the things that all of us can’t leave without is our wallet. Last year I was thinking of purchasing a wallet made out of Tyvek material. But before purchasing one, I researched about its Pros and Cons and found out that most people had problems with the Tyvek wallets getting crumpled due to their sizes being bigger than credit cards.
So I decided to make my own Tyvek wallet and improve the flaws:
1- I made the wallet same size as a credit card.
2- I made it tri-fold to make it more compact and yet roomier so you can put multiple cards and cash.
I went to my local FedEx depot and picked few FedEx express envelops that are made from tyvek material, and started making my first prototype and Tri-Vek was born.
My first prototype of Tri-Vek:
With the prototype made, I could carry my 6 most used cards and 8 bills (not half or quarter folded) and it was still unbelievably compact. You can put up to 9 cards in the wallet (3 per card pouch), but 6 is a better number for longer wallet life. I used my prototype for 3 months; it didn't give me the problems that most people mentioned about the wallets getting crumpled.
Tri-Vek wallet is designed to hold currency notes of most countries such as Euro, US and CAND $ as well as Australian $. Maximum note size fitting in Tri-Vek wallet is 7.5 x 3.35 inches (19 cm x 8.5 cm)
Tri-Vek wallets come in 7 different color as well as RIFD blocker versions for those who are concerned about identity theft.
I have currently launched this new product in a crowdfunding website. The full story and product video and pictures can be viewed at the Indiegogo website link below. This product can be pr purchased at a discounted price before the production phase.
Tri-Vek is a project that is currently live on a crowdfunding website. Once funded, the project will become reality and will be mass produced and sold and distributed through Borel Designs Inc. (www.borelinc.com)
