TIGHTIES IS A MINIMALIST WALLET / CARDHOLDER / POCKECT ORGANIZER. THE DESIGN ALLOWS YOU TO ALSO CARRY YOUR CASH, CARDS, KEYS AND MORE.
WHY TIGHTIES WALLET?
We both were frustrated with traditional wallets that seemed to have more material in them than functionality. All that material used to make a wallet made them thick bulky and clunky. Not something we wanted to put in our pockets and sit on. We also wanted something that was better than a traditional wallet. We also felt that wallets seemed overpriced from the big brands out there. We wanted something that we could use to organize our pockets or even a purse. An organizer that had everything you needed all in one place without a whole lot of digging or searching around at the bottom of your pocket or purse. We used rubber bands, elastic bands but they either broke, wore out, or just plain looked goofy. We wanted a different kind of wallet that was functional but wasn't like everything else out there,something that was small, compact, easy to use, stylish, kept our pockets organized and was fun. We wanted more than just a wallet. We wanted a pocket organizer.
THE DESIGN PROCESS?
So we set out to do things a little different. What started as a simple sketch by Brooks in a notebook sparked something far better and more functionally designed as we put our heads together to design the perfect wallet. After a few round of designs we finally settled on where we're at today. Below is the first rendering of final design that we created in illustrator and sent off to our manufacturer for production. It's been so much fun to take TIGHTIES from just a sketch to an actual product that we now use everyday! We hope you'll love it as much as we do.
