Compact wallets for urban nomads

If you think classic wallets are too bulky, these alternatives might be for you. Kancha wallets are lo-fi and handy. Handmade in Kyrgyzstan.

Kyrgy-what?!

Kyrgyzstan is a Central Asian country bordering on Kazakhstan, Tadzhikistan, Uzbekistan and China. In the wake of the collapse of the Soviet Union, Kyrgyzstan gained independence in 1991. Since ancient times, nomadic peoples of different origins moved through the mountainous landscape. Until the beginning of the last century, the Kirghiz were nomads living in traditional yurts. Today, the majority has swapped their yurt for a permanent residence. The first hotspots of urban nomadism are popping up in the capital city Bishkek. Here too, you’ll spot creative people sitting in cafés, equipped with their notebooks, iPhones and everything else modern life has to offer.

Breath-taking views. Kyrgyzstan’s mountainous landscape.

Urban nomads

People today are increasingly mobile and often referred to as «urban nomads». Kancha brings together this aspect with the traditional handcraft of Kyrgyzstan. The result: designer accessories made of felt and leather. We currently have their leather wallets in our range.

Handmade

Kancha works with small, local workshops specialised in processing felt and leather. All products are handmade in Kyrgyzstan from natural, locally available materials. Each product has a label hand-signed by its maker. One sewer was able to start her own business thanks to a micro credit. This socially oriented project is promoting the working conditions in the region.

Arthur’s workplace. The master leather craftsman also manufactures wallets for Kancha.

  • Category Marketing Specialist
I’m truly passionate about my job as Category Marketing Specialist for shoes and accessories – bad news for my entrance hall, which has become home to a huge pile of shoes within a short time. One pair of shoes for every day of the year – that’s my joy and my misery in one. When I’m not in the office, you’ll probably spot me in Zurich’s district 11, where I pursue my hobbies and spend time with my loved ones. I enjoy sunny weekends outdoors and travelling to far-away countries. Foreign cultures, oppressive heat and nature attract me in a magical way.

Ich bin auch ein riesiger Fan von platzsparenden Geldbörsen, persönlich habe ich seit 4+ Jahren das "Hide and Seek" von Bellroy. Vielleicht könntet ihr die auch ins Sortiment aufnehmen? :)
Für diese Produkte wäre es auch hilfreich, wenn man "Kein Münzfach" als Filter auswählen könnte.

Ciao wachhoju. Vielen Dank für dein super Feedback, das hilft uns sehr die noch relativ frische Kategorie aufzubauen. Die Marke sieht interessant aus und ich habe diese an den zuständigen Einkäufer weitergeleitet. Ich melde mich wieder sobald ich mehr Infos habe. Dein Wunsch kann ich im Filter gerne einbauen.

Ich bin vor kurzem auf die Marke Distil Union gestossen. Ich denke, dass ich nicht der einzige bin hier in der Schweiz der sich gerne das Wally Bifold kaufen würde. Wäre cool wenn ihr die Portemonnaies von Distil Union aufnehmen könnt. distilunion.com/products/wa...

Schade ist keine vegane Variante erhältlich. Zum Beispiel aus Recyclingmaterial.

Ja das sind halt Lederportemonnaies. Kancha macht eigentlich auch viele (nachhaltigere) Produkte aus Filz, jedoch keine Portemonnaies.
