A Leeds-based designer and manufacturer of men’s accessories has exceeded its most recent Kickstarter campaign by more than 2000%.

Vanacci launched a Kickstarter campaign for its range of hacker-proof Carbon Exo wallets on October 19th this year.

With 24 days still remaining on the campaign, the company has exceeded the initial £1000 pledged goal by more than 2000%. The increasing total currently stands at £22,126.

The new Carbon Exo wallet is an upgraded version of the popular Carbon Evo. Following the success of the original wallet, the Exo offers the same unique style with improved functionality.

The wallet has expanded to accommodate seven cards internally, as well as space for cash. The design also features a quick access RFID (radio-frequency identification) active pocket at the rear, preventing hackers from accessing contactless cards through the wallet.

Established in 2014, Vanacci offers a range of unique designs for men’s jewellery, wallets, pendants and cufflinks including fragrance releasing bracelets. Vanacci combines Italian design with British craftmanship, fusing style with practicality in each piece, crafted by hand in its Leeds headquarters.

Having previously launched seven products via Kickstarter, Vanacci holds the title as the company behind the most successful crowd-funding campaign in the design sector in the Yorkshire region.

Commenting on the success of the kick-starter campaign, managing director James Whitfield said:

“We are thrilled to have exceeded our pledged Kickstarter goal by over 2000%, this is a fantastic achievement and it’s great to know that our customers are as excited as we are about the new Carbon Exo range.

“Following our previous success on Kickstarter, we were confident that we could run another successful campaign with a new innovative product. We are delighted with the results and can’t wait to release more products in this way.”
