Earn Your Story: The Soul of Trayvax

by BTown Web Collaborator November 01, 2016 1 min read

Trayvax transcends beyond its futuristic engineering. Crafted details, like the way someone’s grip naturally fits the wallet’s slim weightlessness and how cards shuffle seamlessly through the card slot, these elements are composed by the soul of Trayvax.

                The Trayvax factory is situated amongst a sea of other warehouses, in dewy Bellingham, WA. Through the beige front door, the rhythm of custom machinery pulses. Vibrant employees chat about outdoor adventures, as sewing machines meticulously mesh fabric together, and computers light up with online orders. Inside, the ascetic is a combination of warm wooden workstations, tall fake plants, red plastic bins of supplies (piled upon blue plastic bins of paracord, leather, custom screws), and more. The air tastes of laser-cut metal.

                The innovation of Trayvax is an industrial process, because the employees create each wallet by hand from start to finish. “Batch work is the death of USA manufacturing,” says Trayvax founder, Mark King.

Small amenities, like the break room stocked with Costco-quantity snacks, a humble library filled with personal-growth books, wall of encouragement where employees are offered free counselling to be their best version, and plush down-feather couches to relax, create a teaming environment. It’s the Trayvax culture plus values: meaning, vision, and purpose, that transcend into employees that make the product line, because this company cares about those that make Trayvax come to life.

                Most want to do something great; to be something great. The soul of Trayvax is doing just that, and they refuse to settle for anything less.

Featured Product: Keydex - The Best Key Organizer

by Brian Zig July 24, 2020 3 min read

Creating Everyday Carry products comes with the responsibility of designing more than a key organizer that doubles as a multi tool. All of our products are designed to last a minimum of 65 years. 

Are you tired of keys digging into your thighs while sitting down?

We designed the G10 CNC-Machined top plate to endure rugged conditions while still appearing sleek in your front pocket. It will no longer look like you are carrying around a golf ball made out of paperclips. I personally have ruined a favorite pair of pants from the constant friction from carrying keys in my right pocket. It was not until I introduced myself to the Keydex that I felt comfortable sitting down without keys pinching into my side.
