Our Story

Since our founding in 2007, Rogue Industries has been a family project. Our founder, Michael Lyons, was unhappy with his bulky back pocket wallet, which he was convinced was causing his lower back pain.

Michael began learning about leather and design. He obtained two patents on a front pocket wallet design that was shaped to fit the cut of your front pants pocket. And that's how the Rogue Industries was born — and before we knew it we had a small business.
