A common essential in everyday life is the wallet. An accessory, that is virtually indispensable and a trusted companion. Every day we are using our credit cards, our ID’s, Starbuck cards and other electronically accessible information – all tucked away in our wallets. At the same time we are exposing ourselves to the danger of ID theft and fraud. Not only is the danger real; it is an increasing risk and a growing problem. Far too many products are said to give protection when in fact, it is an empty promise, providing a false sense of security to you!
Elegantly Engineered Design
Slim is in. With innovative storage solutions, we made sure to achieve an optimal storage factor in a slimmest design. You can be assured that you will have a perfect slim form factor while packing the same amount of credit-, ID cards, cash and keys or more as you are used to.
Industry Leading Data Theft Protection
The easy pay ability we enjoy today is made possible by RF (radio-frequency) enabled chips, which contain encoded personal information, such as your name, address, Social Security number, phone number, bank account details and more. If your wallet doesn’t contain RFID blocking, you are vulnerable to skimming – a form of electronic pick pocketing. RFID blocking technology is not a new concept, however – most of the RFID/NFC blocking material and products currently available are only able to reduce ‘data leakage’ – not completely block it.
“An estimated 17,6 million Americans—about 7% of U.S. residents age 16 or older—were victims of identity theft in 2014. Most victims (86%) experienced the misuse of an existing credit card or bank account”. Source: Bureau of Justice Statistics, US Department of Justice (NCJ 248991, Sep 2015)
That’s why Pagalli leather wallets have the industry’s leading data theft security foil – CRYPTALLOY- built right in. CRYPTALLOY is one of the few blocking foils in the world that is TÜV and ASTM certified, and that blocks 100% of all known frequencies. The integration of CRYPTALLOY into our wallets makes Pagalli one of the very few brands in the world to have been certified by an independent body for data theft protection.
Marchesa Premium Leather
There are many different leather types and grades out there to choose from, but none comes close to meeting our exacting requirements. So we made our own. It’s called Marchesa Premium leather, and it’s made exclusively for Pagalli in collaboration with Thailand’s VKA tannery. Marchesa Premium leather is a vegetable-tanned leather that combines tradition with technology in a unique way. Vegetable tanning is a truly ancient craft that requires skill and time – time that is not available to the mass produced, chemically-processed leathers so often used today.
We developed the Marchesa Premium to safeguard the art of vegetable-tanning methods and to create a premium, superior product. The Marchesa process starts with carefully selected raw cow hides. These are then processed with our special mix of natural tanning substances, including Quebracho extract. The exact mixture is our secret, and is the result of year-long trials and tests to achieve the best possible results. Under the skilled hands of the tanner, using pure water and a large helping of patience, the raw hide is transformed into high-quality leather. Soluble dyes give the leather its color and surface structure. Marchesa Premium is a semi-aniline leather, which means that it maintains the leather’s characteristic grain and adds a protective top coat for additional resistance to wear. Marchesa Premium leather is distinguished by its unique warmth, soft yet tough texture, and distinctive fragrance that invokes a feeling of luxury.
Handcrafted lining with Surin Thai Silk
We went on a journey to find the best possible lining that we could for our wallets. This journey led us to the Thai province of Surin, where some of the most exclusive silk in the world is being made. With took this exquisite Surin Thai silk and created a beautifully crafted, quality lining that accentuates the sleek silhouette of our products.
Our commitment to quality is apparent from the moment your Pagalli wallet arrives. Pagalli’s packaging perfectly embodies the value and identity of our brand. All packaging is made from up-cycled leather fibers, hand stitched and closed with a wax seal.
