For too long, wallets were designed to hold everything: receipts, gift cards, and anything else that could be stuffed inside. Ridge completely changed that mindset with our minimalist approach to design. Father-son team Daniel and Paul Kane launched the Ridge Wallet on Kickstarter in 2013 and it now sits in the front pockets of over 3 million men and women worldwide. The two have since recruited a skilled team to execute on their vision of creating quality, functional products that inspire people to re-think what they carry everyday.Ridge is minimalist without being limiting. It’s about carrying less but always having what you need.

Ridge products aredesigned for long-term durability usingcarefully selected, high quality materials thatare guaranteed for the life of the product. Ridge also offers several accessory and replacement items that help extend the life of our products.
Ridge works to minimize the carbon footprintof our supply chain by moving most manufactured products without air transport and maximizing container space for freight. Customer orders are shipped from regional and international fulfillment centers which allows for more efficient delivery with less carbon-intensive transport. Additionally, much of the packaging that Ridge uses for our products is recyclable, and minimizes the use of plastics and similar materials.
Ridge recognizes the need to protect the natural environment by minimizing waste of resources, repurposing or recycling materials whenever possible and following best practices when disposing of waste and non-recyclable material. Product returns that cannot be resold are donated to people who serve our communities, includingfirefighters, police officers, and other first responders. Also,a fully remote workforce helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions by eliminating the need for a daily commute and mitigating the waste of materials, paper, and plastic that often occur in a traditional office setting.
Ridge is proud of the progress we have made toward environmental sustainability. We will continue to grow our efforts to incorporate further positive impacts into our corporate culture, the services we provide, and the products we create.
