I was lucky enough to grow up with a father who started an American manufacturing company making ornamental post caps for fences. I spent a lot of time in China working for other companies seeing what the scale manufacturing is over there. The thing that is always frustrated me is just the disposability of so much of our economy.
Having worked in a variety of different settings with overseas manufacturers and US made manufacturers, the fact that our product development team and designers sit 20 feet away from where every one of our wallets is made means that we're able to control the craftsmanship of our products in a way that is impossible to do when your manufacturing is in Shanghai.
Trayvax is more than just a wallet because it's bringing manufacturing back to America. I'm Dylan and this is my Trayvax team story.
We launched the first Trayvax wallet in 2014 thanks to the support of our Kickstarter donors. Since then, our catalog has expanded considerably. This provides more options to suit your specific needs. It also makes choosing the right wallet a little trickier. We design every product to be of the highest possible quality, but different models excel in different areas. We love them all, and everyone has their favorite, but if you’re looking at minimalist wallets for the first time, the number of choices can be overwhelming. That’s why we’ve decided to bring our wallets together for some friendly competition. We’ve created rankings in five categories: card capacity, cash capacity, RFID protection, materials, and extras.
Our products are proudly made in the USA. We are located in Bellingham, WA. This is where the impact of the jobs we create begins, so today we’re going to highlight our hometown. It’s a great place to work, a great place to live, and a great place to visit. Our ripple of positive impact starts here, and it spreads throughout our country and into the world.
Through the years, our team has introduced a lot of new products, and we have more in the works. Even as we grow, we refuse to compromise on the quality of our materials and craftsmanship. Building quality and reliability into everything we make is one of the ways we show gratitude to our customers, and that is very important to us. Discovering just the right material is always a challenge, but it is totally worth it. Establishing exclusive partnerships with the best tanneries ensures that the perfect top-quality materials go into the products we make for you. This is one of the many reasons we are able to offer our 65-Year Heirloom Warranty, which is our unbreakable commitment to quality and durability.
