Bellroy is a company that designs thin wallets;[1] it was founded in 2010 in Melbourne, Australia by designers Hadrien Monloup[3] and Andrew Fallshaw, after receiving funding from Fallshaw's startup investment group Investling.[4] The name "Bellroy" derives from the towns of Bells Beach and Fitzroy, where the company was started.[5] As of August 2016, Bellroy had about 70 plus employees.[2] and sold eleven styles of wallets[6] at retailers in 120 countries.[2] Bellroy wallets typically feature 3 types of leather: naked leathers for character, dressed leathers for a lasting finish and all-weather leathers for tough conditions[7].
