Contactless payment bracelet Tovi Sorga printed leather cuffs

Turn over our popular printed leather cuffs to reveal their hidden zipped pockets and you understand immediately why they’re on the must-have list for discerning party, festival and wanderlusters. Tovi's first ever product was a cuff, designed to mix practicality with self-expression, so that his friends could tuck away some cash and dance hands-free when off for a stylish night out. 

Contactless chip bracelet bPay Tovi SorgaTen years on, we at Tovi Sorga have teamed up with bPay by Barclaycard to bring a tiny contactless payment chip to our cuff wallets, making them perfect for quick, secure payments at over 400,000 locations across the UK including the London transport system and while travelling abroad.

With contactless spending topping £7 billion in 2015 and a forecast of over 100 million contactless cards in market by the end of 2016, it’s clear that consumers are hungry for the increased speed, flexibility and security that touch-and-go payment can provide.

Tami Hargreaves, Commercial Director for our partners bPay by Barclaycard, recently met with Reuters TV to give Barclaycard’s view on the future of contactless. Tami also showcased our new Contactless Cuff Wallets. Watch now to learn more about this exciting new technology.


Tami Hargreaves, Commercial Director, Digital Consumer Payments at Barclaycard said:

“bPay by Barclaycard is the ideal addition to Tovi Sorga’s range of beautiful cuffs, allowing wearers to make simple, secure and stylish contactless payments for everyday purchases. Linked to any Visa® or MasterCard® debit or credit card registered to a UK address and managed by the bPay mobile app, users have full control and visibility of their spending. This new range will offer customers a fashionable way of making quick and easy payments – whether for a morning coffee, lunchtime sandwich or evening drinks.”
