I absolutely love this Nerd Herder gadget wallet. I do, however, wish I went up a size but it's okay because now it's a good excuse to buy another one! My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and it sticks out about a quarter of an inch but it's TOTALLY still usable! I am ordering a wristlet to match <3

I had bought the original size wallet from here years ago and while it's still in great shape, I've gotten a bigger phone and a passport, so getting a bigger size was needed. The vibrant orange is just what I was looking for and I know this will last for years because it's so well made.
The Birth of a Wallet
One day, whilst Brook was making Sufjan Stevens fingerpuppets for her shop Angelbot, she noticed her musician-husband Brian and his menagerie of guitar picks, tuners and USBs. She observed he was apt to losing his precious tools of the trade because they had no home. A spark was lit. Imagination and reason joined forces with the goal of constructing a home for the precious and nerdy accoutrements. No longer would her husband’s items be lost. From that day forth, the Nerd Herder was born. It was so beloved by this realm’s musicians, tech-heads and geeky Renaissance Men that it required its very own shop. Thus, on June 5, 2010, Rockitbot found its way into the world. It’s been growing bigger and bigger every day since.

Both the founder and mad scientist behind Rockitbot, Brook is also a full-time software developer and mama. Known for her sharp sarcastic wit while wielding a sewing needle, Brook also loves music, vintage robots and a good polka dot.
Better-half Of This Gig, Designer, Creator
The quirky happy go lucky assistant at Rockitbot, Bree is also a daydreamer. (Mostly about mermaids.) She loves reading fairy-tales, going on adventures with her dragon-slaying hubby, and making up ribald songs to serenade Brook.

Additional policies and FAQs
Q- Can I get a key fob wristlet made to match the wallet I have chosen from your shop?
A- We can always make a matching wristlet! Just add this item to your cart and check out like normal:
Q- What’s with the shoulder straps and wristlets?
A- Ladies, listen up! You will love, love having a shoulder strap on your gadget wallet! With a shoulder strap you can wear your wallet around like a mini purse (think shopping, parties, when you go to the gym) and then wrap the strap around it and pop it into a bigger purse or diaper bag. We could NOT live without our shoulder straps!
Our wristlets are a great way to wear your keys on your wrist. Then you can clip the wristlet onto the wallet and voila… a super cute mini purse!
Q- Why do you use felt pockets?
A- The premium quality Merino wool felt we use is naturally antimicrobial and water resistant, helps to keep your screen clean, provides traction so your gadgets don't fall out, and gives just the right amount of cushion to keep the objects you store inside from hurting your smartphone (iPhone, Android or whathaveyou) screen when the wallet is closed AND is able to stretch just enough to accommodate an infinite amount of little objects you want to stow away . If you would prefer that we construct your gadget wallet with vegan friendly bamboo felt please let us know.
Q- Do you take custom orders?
A- We are not able to take custom orders at this time.
Our Nerd Herder wallets are not intended to be your only form of gadget protection. iPhones and Androids are slick! When your phone is in use (ie. You are talking on the phone) you need some sort of protection from dropping it. We recommend using a hard case or skin in conjunction with our Nerd Herder wallets.
Answering your phone is the modern day equivalent of a wild west gunfight. When you need to grab a call the last thing you want to be doing is fumbling to get your phone out of a case locked down with buckles and latches. You just need to answer your phone! If it’s tough to get your phone or gadget out of the case you just won’t use the case. Our wallets were designed with this in mind: easy access to your gadget... grab your phone, camera or change MP3 tracks in a flash.
Q- Why isn’t there a coin area?
A- Our wallets are gadget wallets designed to store all the little random electronic goodies you haul around. While they allow you to take a credit card and ID or two with you, they aren’t designed to be a primary wallet for everybody… Granted, WE actually DO use our Nerd Herders as our only wallet but we don’t use a ton of coins and when we have a couple we just drop them in the earbud pocket (somehow the felt keeps them in).
Q- Where do you get your fabric?
A- Ah… sweet, sweet fabric…. We. Love. Fabric. It’s pretty apparent from the variety of fabric options available in our shop that we love buying fabric. Our fabric comes from all over the country… boutiques, online, art and craft shops, thrift stores. Brook travels for work (yes, we have day jobs!) and has lugged lots of fabric through airport security via carry on bag!
Our upcycled, recycled products use fabric salvaged from furniture upholstery swatches.
Q- Do you sell wholesale?
A- At this time we are not accepting new wholesale accounts. If you are interested in becoming a wholesale client in the future, send us a note and we will contact you when we are able to take on new clients!
Thanks for dropping by! Please let us know if you have additional questions ...or you can always just send us a note to say "hi"!
