I recently discovered Trove, an awesome slim wallet, on a French lifestyle blog, thanks to Kurt Grava. It’s slightly ironic seeing as Trove is a British product designed and fabricated in Melton Mowbray.
After watching the presentation video, I slowly but surely fell in love with the product and the idea of a minimalist wallet.
The idea came to life in August 2014 as the result of a successful Kickstarter campaign, raising just under 200% of the original £12,500 goal.
Trove is a highly customisable and stylish slim wallet, designed to carry your cards, cash and keys. They offer over 20 different colour schemes and if that’s not enough, you can even design your own or add a monogram.
I decided to get in touch with the creator, and after asking a few questions I was sure that I wanted one. Two days later I had a brand new Trove just begging to be used.
I could instantly feel that Trove is a quality product made with high grade materials such as Tuscan leather and woven Italian elastic to name a couple.
The wallet consists of three separate compartments and is reversible allowing it to be attached to a belt or to hold various other objects.
My favourite feature has to be the hidden storage pocket where I like to keep my ‘spare’ SIM cards, I generally forget them when going abroad and Trove makes sure I always have them to hand.
My hardest decision when using Trove was choosing which cards to keep and which ones I would leave at home, because although the wallet can easily hold upwards of 10 cards, I wanted to minimise my wallet.
You may remember I recently reviewed Curve, which actually made my transition to Trove a lot more bearable as I had access to all my cards in one.
I ended up with just 4 cards in total, my bank debit card, my Mondo and Curve cards which I am currently testing and my driver’s licence. I don’t generally use cash so I don’t need any space for that and my keys I keep separate.
I have used Trove for over a week now and I can’t stop showing it off to my friends and family. It really does feel great and doesn’t show any signs of stretching or losing its colour.
Trove is available on trove.cc starting at £30, there is now 24 colour combinations to choose from or you can design your own on which for £5 more you can add a personalised five letter monogram.
