Artisan leather wallet - handmade by me. Inspired by heritage biker wallets, so good and strong. This will survive everything from brunch dates with the wife to wet and windy motorbike road trips, and keep you stylish at the same time.
Hand crafted from Cognac Wax Leather from the amazing Badalassi Carlo Tannery in Italy.
This is a beautiful wallet, with two cash slots, 6 card slots and a coin section zipped with a heavy duty YKK brass zip with a dark green twill tape. I love this thing so much I use one as my personal wallet.
The wallet is entirely handmade, from cutting the hide right through to the the saddle stitching that holds it all together. The snap / popper is a 20mm decorative concho with a floral motif.
I‰۪ve used heavy duty Amy Roke polyester thread throughout. It's stronger than the traditional linen thread and won't rot. This wallet is built to last.
Chose whether you would like an eyelet of swivel set in for your wallet chain. I‰۪ll do this free of charge. Or just leave it as is. Just let me know when you order. THE WALLET DOES NOT COME WITH THE CHAIN IN THE PICTURES.
However, I highly recommend Smoky Sumi's Store on Etsy - the highest quality Japanese sand cast hardware it will ever be your pleasure to fondle!
MADE TO ORDER. Please allow two weeks for production.
About the leather:
This is an amazing vegetable tanned leather that has been infused with oils, and finished with a waxy surface in a centuries old tanning process that gives the leather a distressed and rugged look, bringing out the natural grain.
This leather will crackle and lighten when stretched and folded, and will darken back down when brushed. This will age beautifully!
The cognac colour is a medium brown, the deep wax surface shows rich coffee to light almond colouring.
Top grain leather can vary in shade and grain. Sometimes blemishes will occur ‰ÛÒ which enhance the individual pieces and give each wallet a unique character.
