Meet the Bark wallet, effortlessly cool.
Bark cork wallets are designed and produced in California by two UC Berkeley students who have set out to design a consumer line of goods called the minimal duck. Both avid animal lovers, the two have vowed to manufacture only 100% animal-friendly, cruelty-free products! In a search to find a leather alternative with a modern look, they came back to Cork. Cork is naturally water resistant, can be easily cleaned with warm water and soap, and is as durable as leather. It can withstand approximately 50,000 rubs!
Even better, cork is also sustainable!! The tree that the cork is harvested from continues to live and reproduce since the bark is only gently stripped to obtain the cork. This happens over and over again during the life span of the tree. It takes in 10 times more Co2 than a regular tree (we need more cork trees!!).
The duo known as AMCW, has come up with multiple uses of the material in their first Kickstarter project. They have designed a beautifully, simple, card wallet that holds up to 10 cards. This constraint was designed by the team in order to keep the wallets thin profile and reduce the temptation of hording everything in your wallet. Have you seen a guy’s wallet…I feel like I need an extra purse for the guys wallet!
AMCW has also come up with 2 iPhone accessories, accommodating both the iPhone 4/4s and the iPhone 5. The first one is an elegant iPhone backing that adds to the beauty of the phone but also adds a unique feel and grip to the phone. An IPhone gets handled too many times to count, so it’s nice to have something on the back that you can wash when it gets dirty as well.
The Bark Team has also come up with an iPhone pouch/wallet. This was designed to be the only thing you take with you when you go for a night out. It holds your phone and two cards while providing 360-degree protection. Sounds like I definitely need one of these for a night out on the town.
This project is currently live on Kickstarter. Check them out and show your support. The project will only be funded if they meet their goal, only 10 days left. Please spread the message with your friends, Facebook and Twitter Fans!!
