WALLETS THOUGHT DIFFERNTLY
small. light. different.
Looking for a small purse with a coin and card compartement?
A purse has always been more than a container to transport money. For many, it was a photo album of people who were particularly close to your heart. An archive in which important business cards and telephone numbers were kept. We often hear at trade fairs "I carry half my life in my wallet“, but we also notice - there is a rethinking. Many of you no longer want to drag around a bulky wallet and realize that don’t need that much.
Reasons for a credit card sized wallet
What used to be in the wallet can now be found on the cell phone. Many of the documents are no longer in the old format and are available in credit card size or even accessible on a smartphone - so you can reduce your wallet without having to restrict yourself. So why should a wallet still be big?
We have three models to choose from: The A&K MINI, our well thought-out bestseller with a coin compartment and optional key ring. The A&K KOMPAKT, big enough for vehicle papers (cm x cm, inch x inch), but still extremely light and handy. And the slim wallet, the A&K TINY, for purists who only need a few cards and notes.
WHAT'S SPECIAL ABOUT THE A&K WALLETS?
DESIGN - thought-out aesthetics
Our products are well thought out, functional, suitable for everyday use and aesthetically pleasing. Unusually ordinary things with a "tool character". We concentrate on the essentials and nothing is left to chance. It starts with the manufacture of the materials.
HIGH QUALITY HANDICRAFT
We produce in Germany in cooperation with regional companies. Our DNA starts with the short transport routes up to high quality in production. Everything is printed, punched, stored and sewn in and around Berlin.
MATERIALS - light. robust. water-resistant.
All wallets are made of kraft paper and elastic rubber band. Kraft paper is used on labels on the back of jeans, it is water-resistant and, like leather, gets a patina with usage. It is made from a vegetable wood pulp and rubber polymer. The material is a bit stiff at first and becomes pliable with use.
MATERIALS & MANUFACTURING
We use three materials for the A&K MINI, A&K KOMPAKT and A&K TINY: paper leather, elastic bands and thread. The materials used are produced in the vicinity of Berlin (less than 500 km away). This has the advantage that you partly know each other personally, and secondly that the transport routes are kept as short as possible.
The paper compound consists of 70% wood pulp and of 30% rubber polymer, it is free of pentachlorophenol, PVC or BPA. The tear-resistant and water-repellent paper leather has FSC® and Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification. With use it becomes supple, feels like leather and gets a patina. If it should get wet, it’s no problem.

You have everything on you and it finds a place everywhere - in the pocket or in the smallest handbag. Not much bigger than a credit card, but still room for cards, bills and change. While others are still carrying their large wallets around, you know exactly what you need and have all the important means of payment with you in the smallest of formats.

A&K WATER-REPELLENT HIP & SHOULDER BAG
THE ORIGINAL of the bag
Andreas (Mr. ANDERS) had the first draft of the bag sewn on his motorcycle trip through India. The original idea was to be able to carry a CD player in your pocket (yes, that was a while ago ;-)) on your hip while driving so that the CD doesn't jump all the time. Long story short, the vibrations on the motorcycle were still too strong and so the bag was used for passport, keys, small camera and all sorts of odds and ends. Even after the trip, it was worn in many places and often, so that it has now almost fallen apart. That's why we're bringing them out of waxed cotton.
This means that the bag will be reissued - and will no longer be a one-off. The design is the same, for the materials we opted for the water-repellent Oilskin, a cotton webbing and an innovative fastener.
The A&K hip bag and shoulder bag is made of waxed cotton, which is natural and yet water-repellent. The bag can be worn on the belt or on the strap over the shoulder or hip. The webbing has a practical magnetic fastener that closes securely and yet is easy to open. The bag has an inside pocket on the front so that you can better reach and see what is stored there when you wear the bag around your belt or on your hips. The large cover protects the zipper from rain. The bag is available in 2 sizes, namely in 2 liters and 3 liters volume and is therefore sufficient for a small bottle, cell phone, keys, handkerchiefs, sunglasses and odds and ends. The blue and black pockets are lined with a lighter fabric inside so that you can find something more easily.
MATERIAL & PRODUCTION BUM & SHOULDER BAG
With our bag, too, we paid particular attention to sustainable materials and local production. The waxed cotton is made in England and was traditionally used there for weatherproof clothing at sea. It is water-repellent without using plastics. We also offer cotton for the webbing because it feels natural and would dissolve by itself over time if our bag were to become obsolete. The bag is sewn in Germany.
Fits perfectly in the credit card compartment, for 1-3 keys
The key ring completes the A&K MINI wallet. 1-3 keys can be carried with the key card. When you don't need all the keys, e.g. a bike or hiking tour, a walk with or without a dog or when going out in the evening. Small, light and on the go with everything important - that is the idea behind the key card.
Let's go - without a cluttered handbag or trouser pocket.
Protects bank and credit cards from being read.
You want to protect your cards and be safe on the go. With the RFID blocker card, the bank cards are protected against unintentional readout.
The elastics on our wallets and the document pouch are interchangeable.
The belt straps are equipped with a high-quality magnetic fastener.
THATS WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
I am totally enthusiastic about the design and the implementation, really fantastic :)
Thanks again for your support !!
I bought my first wallet 2 years ago at the market in Berlin. Is a loyal and very reliable companion to me!
It's really fun to be out and about with the little one - great piece!!!
Hello everyone, this is the nicest wallet I have ever owned. Thanks for the great product! Keeping it minimalistic and yet so much space for everything.
I have it and I am very happy with it.
I am very impressed. Quality and, above all, regionality.
Bought on a market in Berlin in 2019 and has been my loyal companion ever since!
I think the wallet is super practical and I couldn't do without it. Keep it up!
I would like to get rid of praise in this way. Yesterday evening I ordered an A&K MINI from you in the online shop. Today, not even 24 hours later, the product was delivered with it.
What a positive experience :-)
The part is awesome. Packaging too.
Thank you for this great start to the day. Keep it up!!!
We are very enthusiastic about your product and have already recommended it to others.
I just wanted to say thank you for your great product. I've had the wallet for almost a year now and I don't want to miss it anymore. It's incredibly handy, small and practical. The quality of the material hasn't decreased a bit.
Thank you very much for your effort!
I bought the mini wallet from you some time ago and I am still completely thrilled. It is simply stylish in terms of design, super comfortable, as well as minimalist. Since I've had it for some time now, I can't say that the quality is really great for a longer period of time.
I just wanted to say thank you for the quick delivery. I have to say that after the short time I am already convinced of your product, especially because I have thought for a long time whether it is the right one for me. In the end it was a gut decision and that's why I'm all the more pleased. It's a completely different direction than what I've always had in small purses. You don't need more.
