Woolet is a next generation wallet that keeps your cash and cards safe. Ultra slim, bluetooth-powered, self-charging and handcrafted to perfection.
Woolet acts as your smart wallet sidekick. It looks out for your valuables so you can worry less, and focus on the important things instead.
The Kickstarter project was started early in February and the company behind Woolet is aiming to deliver the product in April after supporters of the project pledged $102,209 today, when it was only aiming for $15,000.
“It was worth spending so many days devising the concept, and searching for the best option to realize it. We closed Woolet’s Kickstarter first day by having 77% of the goal. After 1,5 days we accomplished our mission. And then, something magical happened. Woolet became the most popular project in the Technology section! You can only imagine how happy we’re when we saw it! Thank you for your incredible support! Our goal was $15,000. Now, we’ve got 808 backers, who pledged !! You give us so many smiles, joy and advices that we’re sure that we have to work hard, and do our best to make you satisfied,” the Woolet team said on Wednesday.

Woolet has 4 slots to accommodate all your cards. There is a large card slot for those bigger IDs (up to 70 x 100mm) and a hidden pocket. Woolet also comfortably fits larger banknotes, including euros and British pounds, so you’re ready for any country.
