Solahanpu Debuts Kickstarter Campaign for Ultra-Thin Tenuis3 Wallet

Story Filed: Jan 28, 2020 7:16 AM IST

Tokyo, Japan – Jan 27, 2020 – Solahanpu, the creator of the Tenuis2 ultra-thin wallet, has found a way to make its world-famous wallet even thinner. The company has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund its newest incarnation, the Tenuis3, that measures a mere ¼ in. (6mm) in thickness.

If funding for the project is achieved, shipping will begin in June 2020.The Tenuis3 is manufactured of canvas and luxury goatskin leather for a highly durable wallet appropriate for everyday usage. It’s particularly beneficial for frequent travelers due to its extremely slender design.

The revolutionary design of the Tenuis3 places credit card sleeves vertically rather than horizontally. When empty, the wallet measures 3.54 inches (90mm) wide and 4.33 inches (110mm) long. The Tenuis3 also contains a specially designed coin pocket that ensures coins lay flat. The wallet retains its shape and low profile, even after credit/debit cards and coins are added.

The goat leather interior gives the ultra-thin wallet an even softer feel that also wears extremely well. The wallet’s outer shell is made of canvas coated with paraffin wax that gives it an aesthetically pleasing feel. Canvas has long been used in the making of sails for ships due to its strength and longevity. The material takes on its own unique appearance over time as it wears and the same is true of the Tenuis3.

The wallet also features two hidden pockets. The smaller compartment is ideal for a key, while the larger pocket is appropriate for tickets, self-stick bandages, and the card that individuals use most for quick access. The Tenuis3 is available in blue, black and gray and early bird contributors will receive special perks as a thank-you.

TheTenuis3 has been featured in a variety of minimalist and life hack blogs, media outlets, and the Kickstarter campaign will make the product a reality. The next evolution of the company’s wallet accommodates the needs of today’s busy and active lifestyles with its luxury design, sophisticated style, and a product that combines beauty and functionality with high-quality durability.
