A lot of people ask us what the difference is when comparing our satin and gloss carbon fiber finishes on our minimalist wallets and RFID blocking wallets.
Gloss Carbon Fiber is very smooth and has a deep three-dimensional look. If you stare closely you can see individual strands of carbon and it is absolutely gorgeous. Only very high quality carbon fiber looks this way and the photos do not do it justice. It will also be more reflective when light hits it.
Satin Carbon Fiber tends to absorb light instead of reflecting it so it will not be shiny in direct light. Both finishes are rugged and age very well but the satin "looks" more rugged and has a slightly textured finish instead of being mirror smooth.
