The story of my birth.

It’s Wezel here. Today is a very special day — you get to hear the story of my birth. Since we’re still getting to know each other, I figured the beginning is a good place to start. So here’s the thing — I was sort of a surprise. But I’m getting ahead of myself. I am a product of an obsession — a leather obsession to be exact. Kyle — he’s the one sporting the king of all beards — loved to collect and mess around with leather strips. I am also a product of functionality. Kyle hated carrying around so much “stuff” in his wallet — what is all that for anyway? Kyle, being the bearded genius that he is, combined the obsession and the pet peeve for the greater good. He created a leather wallet designed just for cards: slim, sleek and manly. Here comes the surprise part. Kyle was simply playing around with his handmade wallet when he shoved two cards together and realized they made the perfect easel for a mobile phone. And thus I was born — the combination of a wallet and an easel — the Wezel. The rest is history. I had my first growth spurt thanks to an awesome Kickstarter fund (be sure to watch the video below). After a patent, lots of social media, and an Awful Waffle launch party, I was growing like a weed. And of course, all of you keep me going today. I may have been a surprise, but it was a pretty wonderful surprise, if I do say so myself. So there you have it. A little bit about me. Be sure to stay tuned — there are more Wezel tales to come.   Cheers, The Wezel
