Entirely crafted by hand from start to finish, a machine never touches our Bifold Wallet. The edges are smooth and burnished and stitched by hand using thick, waxed thread. We use a saddle stitch technique to ensure this wallet will last a lifetime. It is roomy with six card slots and a cash pocket. These wallets are made to order meaning we do not keep them in stock. They are made when the order is placed.
This leather is thinner and lightweight with a beautiful, flawless finish. This is a premium Italian vegetable tanned leather that will darken into a rich patina that will be unique to each owner.
A handsewn saddle stitch creates a leather good that will last much longer. In addition to using thicker thread with hand stitching, each stitch is made up of two strong, independent stitches. Unlike the lock stitch sewn by a machine that will completely unravel if one thread does break, the saddle stitch will still hold together if one thread breaks. Not everyone appreciates the effort that goes into a handcrafted good, but if you do then you understand why it is worth paying a little more for an artisanal good.
Please allow 1-2 weeks for handcrafted production.
The pockets may be a little snug at first but after use they will stretch a little, mold to your cards and wear nicely. We recommend conditioning your Italian leather wallet a few times a year with all natural Smith’s Leather Balm.
Each wallet arrives in a cotton drawstring bag ready for gifting!
