If you’ve ever lost your wallet, you’ll immediately think of retracing your steps, cancelling credit cards, and wasting time trying to find one of your most valuable assets. However, there is now a simple solution that guarantees you’ll never lose your wallet again: Where’s Wallet.

“We’re a big fan of simple, beautiful, high quality wallets, and we’re an even bigger fan of keeping them, so it seemed like an obvious idea,” says Daniel Eckler, Founder of MIJLO, the company that creates Where’s Wallet.

However, Where’s Wallet isn’t just a well designed accessory, it’s also a wearable.

“It’s a wearable you can actually wear,” says Eckler. “We’re really proud that the sensor is not shown, and that it just feels like a normal, everyday beautiful wallet – that it just so happens you can’t lose.”

Starting on February 10th, Where’s Wallet will have a campaign on Kickstarter to help them jump-start the production process.

“Our Kickstarter goal is $30,000, we’ll be using the funding for production of both the wallet and the technology that goes inside to ensure people get a high quality product, as well as covering some of the initial costs…” says Eckler.

Here are some of the features you should know about Where’s Wallet:

  • It’s a wearable: “Thanks to cutting edge technology, each wallet features a thin, unobtrusive sensor, so you never have to replace your wallet, or its contents, ever again,” reads an excerpt from a press release.
  • Easy-to-Use: “Download the free Where’s Wallet app, set a notification range, and your phone will alert you the moment you step beyond the preset range,” reads the release. “Use the app to guide you back, and you’ll find your wallet, safe and sound.
  • You Can Afford it: “Starting at $49, you’ll receive a sturdy wallet with a classic, understated look. More than a durable, visually appealing accessory, it seamlessly integrates innovative sensor technology so that you’ll never lose it again.
  • Memorable Design: “Available in three classic designs: the slip, bi-fold and clutch. Each wallet is constructed with 100% vegetable-tanned leather: a rich, full grain leather that establishes a handsome, distinct patina as it ages.”

While the company only specializes in wallets right now, there is possibility to expand in the future.

“We’re committed to creating a really high quality collection of wallets and clutches at the moment, but once we’ve delivered on that, we’ll consider all sorts of other ideas,” says Eckler.
