Trayvax’s Mission: To design for longevity, inspire to action, and give from passion; to drive a greater love of the outdoors to humankind.
Trayvax was started by founder Mark King in 2013. Years earlier, Mark set out to create a product that would cut down on plastic bag waste. What began as a reusable plastic bag carrier became, through many prototypes and revisions, something completely new to the world: the Trayvax wallet. Designed to withstand the toughest conditions – and offer the most utility of any wallet, metal or otherwise, on the market anywhere – Trayvax wallets are built from the highest quality materials and assembled by hand here in the USA.
Just a few years ago, Mark was machining every Trayvax wallet by hand and powder-coating the aluminum faceplates with a small counter-top oven. Today, Trayvax is a company of over 25 employees working together, assembling, packaging, and shipping several hundred wallets a day. Having expanded the Trayvax line to include the Element, Summit, Contour and Axis models, as well as a host of top-quality accessories, we plan to grow and we’re excited to reveal what’s coming next.
