Ari Horowitz, CEO of Sleek Life Design, is off to a good start on Kickstarter. His new sleek, metallic Vessel wallet has raised more than $10,000 — over half of its funding goal — already and prospects look bright.

Ari describes his innovation as a “sophisticated, innovative, luxury design that’s simple to use with a modern, sleek style.”

What makes it innovative? According to Ari, fast card access, a concealed compartment that protects valuables and prevents loss, and durability from a “smooth blasted finish that is hard anodized.”

The company has secured a manufacturer and is now looking to secure Kickstarter backing to get a manufacturing order in.
