The Haru Wallet has been designed in Europe by Netherlands based start-up Kisetsu. As you may have guessed from the name, they have been heavily influenced by the product development ideals of Japanese design. The Haru is already off to a great start on Kickstarter, having reached over 150% funding in the first week, and unlocking some interesting 'stretch goals' in the process.
The Haru Wallet by Kisetsu is made of thin but high quality leather, paired with nylon lining. This allows it to achieve its slim profile whilst remaining stylish. It features a choice of 4 bold stitching colours to contrast against the black leather and provide an eye catching design. There is also a chance that a brown leather option will be unlocked as well, depending on funding levels.
On the front of the Haru wallet, the Kisetsu logo is embossed onto the leather as a finishing touch, and for an extra €5 (around £3.70 / $5.50) a set of initials can also be embossed onto the wallet.
In terms of storage, the Haru has 2 easy access pockets, one on each side, which feature a thumb slot allowing cards to be easily slid out with one hand. Interestingly, one of these is landscape and one portrait, which will mean it should be able to cater to both chip-and-pin as well as swipe card users who want to use the card without fully removing it from the wallet. There is then one card slot for the rest of your cards which can hold anywhere from 1-8 cards, though Kisetsu have said that between 2-4 is what they would recommend.
Notes can be stored in the side facing pocket in the middle of the wallet. The Haru has been confirmed to hold both Euro and Dollar notes. Though not specified, the fact that in the video the Haru is shown to hold a €100 note comfortably gives us hope that it should be able to take most smaller pound note denominations without much issue.
A nice touch with the Haru Wallet, is that Kisetsu have said that 20% of profits made from the sale of the wallet will be donated to the charity Causes For Animals (Singapore) Limited. It's always nice to see a new start up company with a good social conscience, so we commend Kisetsu for this move.
As said previously, the Haru wallet has already reached funding, so will become a reality. It is currently available for €24 (around £17.70 / $26.30). To pledge or find out more, visit the Haru Wallet Kickstarter page or check out the video below.
