[ about stainless steel wallets ]
the discovery, refinement and development of stewart/stand’s signature stainless steel material coincided with a seminal exhibition at the cooper-hewitt national design museum in new york. the title of the exhibition: extreme textiles.
the material has diverse applications: incorporated into spacesuits for durability, architects for flexibility, engineers for precision and impermeability, surgeons for strength, and stewart/stand for its beauty and security.
around the time of this exhibition we began developing the material for our specific applications, falling in love with both the steel’s touch and handle. stewart/stand sensed a tremendous opportunity at the intersection of fashion and technology. combining age-old tailoring techniques, with state of the art equipment, stewart/stand ensures a thin, lightweight alternative to traditional leather; an intelligent accessory that can be carried every day.
