The Astoria is a stylish and functional wallet inspired by NYC living. The Astoria works well in a front or back pocket. There are 2 card slots on the inside and 1 on the outside.
The idea for Waskerd originated when I lived in Astoria, a neighborhood just east of Manhattan. Like all of NYC and much of the USA, Astoria is a confluence of different cultures. Its rich history (from being founded by a fur trader, to being home to a wide variety of immigrant cultures) made a huge impression on me. And so did my friend Billy, who had the original idea for this wallet design. Billy lived in Astoria while I was there, and without his encouragement and the impact of the city, Waskerd would not be around. (Read the story about Billy and me on the rooftop.) The Astoria represents all the people I’ve met and experiences I’ve had that led me to build Waskerd.
