This is the most wallet-like of this wallet series. It is a bifold made of two pieces of leather and has three pockets and three slits to keep cards organized and separated. There are two colors of leather, a brown dye that covers most of the wallet and the natural veg tan that peeks through in the inner spine. BTW, this wallet is too short to hold bills without folding them. Please take note!
This wallet features cream-colored stitching. There is an “SN” logo stamp on the backside of these pieces.
Size: folded: approx 4.4″ x 2.5″ (inches); unfolded: 8.75″ x 2.5″ (inches). The thickness of this wallet when it’s closed and empty is about 1/3 of an inch.
Customizable: Do you want to get a name or initials stamped on these? Please leave me a note at check out or email me after placing your order!
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 dye job
These wallets are darker brown (rather than naturally light tan or buff-y beige) because I hand-dyed it with a penetrating leather dye. Because of the custom process, the color is not uniform from piece to piece.
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!
