A big thanks to Devin from Flowfold for sharing their story and for creating incredibly designed products so that you can enjoy the moment without worrying about what you carry.
With Father’s Day approaching and the weather heating up for new adventures, Flowfold is prepping for another busy season.
The Flowfold brand was born when Charley Friedman was a sixteen years old high school student, working summers at a sail loft. When his leather wallet fell apart, Charley built himself a new wallet from scraps at the warehouse. Vowing not to use another vulnerable wallet, Charley used a material he knew would last: racing sailcloth made from Kevlar and Carbon Fiber.
After graduating college Charley teamed up with friend Devin McNeill to start Flowfold. Together they built a plan for growing Flowfold around three core values:
1. Building durable, long-lasting, and lightweight carrying gear made from quality, responsible materials.
2. Building products for peak experience, allowing adventurers to enjoy themselves without worrying about what they are carrying.
3. Supporting local workers. Helping generate jobs and inspire other entrepreneurs to create a livelihood through resourcefulness and creativity.
In geology, the term “flowfold” describes layers of rock that fold smoothly over time without breaking. Flowfold represents the strength of flexibility.
Products are made in Maine from some of the world’s strongest material. Flowfold’s current line includes three styles of wallets, a tote bag, a passport holder, and a checkbook wallet. You can check out Flowfold at www.flowfold.com and save 10% by using the promo code DAD15.

Charley and Devin first met when they were 8 years old as opponents on the soccer field. Nick Power (Flowfold's first employee) was introduced to Flowfold during a surf session at Higgins beach.
