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.

A tumbler is a massive drum that rolls product, water and media together. Tumbling media is an abrasive material used for polishing, it looks like little stones that are smooth to the touch.
As we run the tumbler for hours the metal clashes against the media and other pieces of metal which drops microscopic sediment to the bottom of the water. A process called deburring.
May gets its name from the Greek Goddess Maia, who is the goddess of fertility and spring. Appropriate for the growth and increase we see during this month. That must be why Mother’s Day falls on the second Sunday of May every year. The women in our lives nurture us into the men and women we eventually become. It is only right that we respectfully show our appreciation with signs of admiration.
