Re: the leather material

These wallets are made with full-grain leather, which is less processed and leaves the entire — aka full — grain of the hide intact. Wallets will include natural scarring and blemishes (which you can see in the pictures!). Full grain leather is porous (but very durable). It absorbs moisture and oil and, over time, will develop a pretty patina (darker, shinier) that looks better the longer the wallet ages.

Re: the leather tannage

These wallets are made from vegetable tanned leather. (Tanning the process in which cowhide becomes leather.) This type of tanning is called vegetable it uses natural materials in the tanning process, like tree bark. Veg tanning is an old-school method of tanning, and the method has been around for centuries.

Re: the color

These wallets have not been dyed (by me!). The feature the beauty of the vegetable tanning process. Don’t fall in love with the current colors though! This leather will inevitable change color over time as it continues to be exposed to light, the oils from your hands, and the adventures they will hopefully go on.

Re: cutting and stitching

These wallets are hand-cut and also hand-stitched, not machined. Because of this, there is often lack of uniformity on the wallets. Also, the ends of the nylon threads get burned off to prevent fraying, so there may be some light burn marks on wallets. 😀 Enjoy!
