Luxurious, Durable, Wearable Art.
Each leather wallet is entirely hand-crafted by a professional artisan from our Belt & Band Atelier in Wellington, Cape Town. We hand-dye colours into the bovine leathers to create a unique depth and tone. This black calf leather wallet, the "Black Beauty", features a stainless steel money clip for your folded bills/cash.
It will hold between 6-8 bank cards, accessible from the outside, and has a nifty thumb flip feature to flick through the cards whilst inside the card pouch. This durable, yet compact leather wallet is made from calf leather that has undergone an environmentally friendly tanning/curing process, with vegetable and tree bark tannins - (namely veg-tanned/vegtan). The characteristic of this leather allows it to age beautifully over time as it gains a unique patina.
We hand-stitch the edges with the finest luxury French Linen (Lin Cable) thread, in Royal Blue colour, for the best finish possible. The edges and corners are hand-burnished smooth and sealed with beeswax, affording you many years of use without the appearance of a "tacky tattered edge".
Dimensions: ~ 7cm (W) x 9.5cm (L) x 1.3cm (H)
