Care & Regular Maintenance Schedule

You can take some simply steps to ensure your leather wallet serves you for decades:

  • To make the leather more supple and increase its life, use Leather Balm in small quantities every 2-3 months
  • Use Saddle Soap to clean leather every 4-6 months, and especially before the monsoon season starts. Salts from sweat and dust from everyday use build up over time. This can lead to fungus (mold) formation in rainy weather.
  • Use Leather Balm to condition your leather goods after cleaning.
  • Never use harsh chemicals or detergents. Do not leave out in high heat environments (over 45C) for prolonged periods of time. 

What to Expect from this Leather

This leather is firm, and smooth and has a long life. When you first receive the wallet, it will feel a bit rigid - it needs around 1-2 weeks time to "break-in". The beauty of this leather is that it will form (mould) to your use over time.

We use only ~1.2 mm thick full grain, vegetable tanned leather to make this wallet. No other fillers, nor fabrics.

  • Hand Burnished Edges

    Edges are burnished rather than painted. What this means is that the leather edge is polished at a high speed using various grits of emery paper and this process seals the edge making it more durable than just painting for a cosmetically finished look.

  • What Can It Carry?

    Features six card slots and one large currency compartment designed to fit INR, USD, EUR and other global currencies in multiple denominations.

  • Slim Form Factor

    If you are in quest of a full feature wallet that's large yet slim), then my friend, you're at the right place. When closed, this wallet is around 12 mm at the center.

Built to Last

no fillers, no compromises

This leather wallet has been designed and built to last a lifetime. It has been meticulously handcrafted with 1.2 mm thick full grain leather and traditional saddlery techniques.

What is Saddle Stitching?

2 Hands, 2 needles, waxed thread

We hand stitch our wallets with a single thread and two needles - This technique is called saddle stitching. Hermés is one of the very few luxury brands that stitches their bags using the saddle stitching technique. Basically, a tiny knot is made between each stitch, making it virtually impossible for the stitches to come off or unravel. While sewing machines can stitch much more faster, they cannot compete with the saddle stitch when it comes to durability of seams.

Caring for Your Godbolé Leather Goods

With some love & care, they will stand by your side for the rest of your life

We recommend that you clean and condition your leather goods every 6 months, or sooner if necessary. Never use harsh chemicals or detergents. Do not leave out in high heat environments (over 45C) for prolonged periods of time.
