behind the design: RFID

What It Is

“RFID stands for Radio-Frequency Identification. The acronym refers to small electronic devices that consist of a small chip and antenna. The majority of the public has RFID chips embedded in their credit cards. RFID skimming is a form of digital theft, which enables information from RFID chips at a distance using an RFID reader device. We have incorporated a technology to shield from this theft in many of our wallets.”

Technology

“RFID will block the transmission of illegally collected data from personal credit cards and passports. We have conducted extensive lab testing to confirm the shield capability of our styles using this technology.”

Functionality

“We line the walls of the product with RFID fabric to protect the interior of the style where credit cards or passports are placed.”
