Story

Change your day to day life with one simple wallet


Just as if you would always take your passport when you go on a trip abroad, we have created such a wallet for your everyday life. With a thin compact design, as well as a sophisticated pocket, this wallet hopes to help you enjoy your hobbies and daily activities to their fullest. 

Made using high quality nylon, this wallet is completely designed and made in Japan! 


Amazing designs inspired by Japanese culture!

We have created two new patterned designs after receiving high praise of the original City Passport! These designs are based on traditional Japanese Patterns, adding to the Made In Japan feel that these wallets have! 




FEATURES

1. Easy to use and large pocket

While the City Passport is compact, that doesn’t mean that you can’t use it to put all the essentials in it! We especially recommend it for active people. The durable nylon makes it water repellent, meaning that even when you go camping or to music festivals, or other outdoor activities, such as skiing or running, you can carry all you need without needing to worry. 

There are 4 different areas that you can make use of.



You can use it of course as a wallet, but you can put a variety of your everyday items inside, such as your car keys, wireless headphones, eye drops or lip balm, even household medicine or small battery chargers.

1. Compartmentalised Pocket

This pocket is great for sticking your coins or smaller objects inside!

2・3 Free Pocket

With the Compartmentalised Pocket separating the main wallet pocket, it creates two pockets for you to use. You can put your normal cards, or notes inside, as well as having space for other various items.

4 Windowed Pocket

This pocket is made with a clear screen so that you can see what’s inside. You can use it to put your smart cards inside to touch against a bus or train gate, or maybe your id or driver’s licence for ease to show access. It is also big enough to put your car keys and so on inside.


Perfect for those that ski or snowboard

With the windowed pocket you can show off your lift pass or so on, making it easy to get back to the slopes!



Great for music festivals and outdoor camping

As the City Passport is compact, you can easily carry all the money and cards you need without having to worry about over carrying. You also don’t need to worry about your stuff getting wet as it is water repellent.


When you go abroad

Fit any cards, travel passes, and even your hotel keys inside without needing to worry about losing them in your backpack. You can also easily ask and show a shop assistant the coins in the pocket so they can help you out.


For everyday use

You can fit everything you need for a day out, your travel pass, keys, money, and even any medication or the like!



2. Thin and compact makes it easy to carry around

As the City Passport is compact and easy to carry around, it’s great as part of your running outfit! Able to fit in the tightest of pockets, runners, cyclers and so on can use this wallet to its fullest. 

What’s more as it has a D-ring attached, you can attach a carabiner and then hook it to your trousers, making sure that your wallet is secure. 




3. Water repellent due to the high class Japanese weaving and highly durable nylon 

The City Passport uses a unique highly durable nylon fabric, created and made here in Japan. 

The material used is the same material that is used for aircraft tires, as well as highly durable fasteners, and the sewing of the passport is done in Higashi Osaka.

Introducing Switch Stance

Creating great goods at the right price. 

This is the motto that we at Switch Stance stand by. 

We feel that products that are cheap for the most part means that the design and manufacturing process will also be affected, and it also means that those products are hard to fall in love with. On the opposite hand, products that are overly expensive are items that you won’t want to use or feel free to use everyday. 

Looking at this, we want to make items that you will love, that will last long, and are just right. 

What makes us stand out is that we have over 1000 different types of fabrics that our staff choose from daily, as well as being in touch with a variety of craftsmen all over the country that provide durable and conscientious sewing to us. 

Our factory isn’t large, and we can’t produce a lot of goods in one run in one day. But our craftsmen, while thinking of our customers, make the products with skill and spirit. They wish to make products that you, the customer, will be proud of. 

Our original target customers were ladies that shopped regularly at general goods and sundries stores, and we made goods that had very feminine patterns leading to very cute goods. 

However last year a camping boom started, and we started to look towards the outdoors, to customers that would love to run or fish or cycle and so on, and we came up with the idea of a wallet that you could use anywhere for anything. This City Passport would transcend genders and be something that anyone would be comfortable to use. 

Through this City Passport Wallet, we hope that various people all over the world can feel the amazing quality of Japanese crafted goods. 


 The story behind the City Passport 

Supporting you as you do the things that you love!

The City Passport was something that came about due to a boom of outdoors activities, and our founder being a snowboarder themselves wanted something that they could use to carry their goods, in particular their lift pass.

So one of the first things we added when creating this was a see through pocket for them to use for their lift pass.

One thing that we realised was that most wallets had an opening for this clear windowed pocket on the outside. One problem though that many skiers have is that with these types of pockets, items are prone to fall out on the slopes, so we switched our design up and moved the opening to the inside.

As the way we made the wallet open is in a large l-shape, you can see clearly inside the wallet.

With the D-ring, we also add a bit more extra security, meaning that you won’t lose your stuff, as well as being able to attach it to most snowboard gear.

For the most part, we made something that we ourselves wanted, and wasn’t going to make it available to the general public, but after showing this off to a couple of our regular customers, they mentioned to us “This would be great just for everyday use! It would sell really well! Please try to produce a few more!”, and so we did. From there it became popular and we are now focusing more on these types of items.

Risks and challenges

The design and materials used are subject to change based on availability and so on. If there is a change, we ensure to let backers know via an update. In regards to import fees, these are handled on the side of the backer. Please be aware of this before backing. Depending on the amount of backers we have for this project, we may need to push back the delivery schedule of the rewards. Please be aware of this. We plan to ship on time but due to the pandemic, this may not be completely possible. Please take note of this, and we ask for your understanding in the event of any delays that may occur. In regards to Canada, Australia, Greece, and Romania shipping may be delayed due to the lack of ships and planes delivering to these countries. This means that the delivery date on the pledges to these areas may be incorrect for your area. We ask for your consideration in this regard. Hexagons and Blue Sea Waves Colored products have no water repellent.
