Designed to bridge the gap between a card holder and a regular wallet, this skillfully handcrafted slim wallet is designed to carry 6 cards and some cash folded once.
This wallet has a substantial feel in your hand, retaining its form over time. The leather is firm and smooth to touch. It will develop a nice patina over time depending on your usage.
A newer version of this wallet is available here. We have used hand-dyed Italian Vachetta leather and created a slot in the inner leather panel to create space for additional cash and cards - Bifold Card Wallet No. 1 in Italian Leather
What Sets It Apart
This wallet is designed and built to last a lifetime. The only material used in each wallet is 1.2 mm thick full grain vegetable tanned leather. No fillers, no fabric, no compromise.
Most wallets in the market are made using a thin layer (0.3 - 0.5 mm) of 'genuine' leather and lined with fabric where stiffness and rigidity is provided by adding in foam fillers.
Full grain leather means the top grain has not been sanded off. This makes the leather strong and resilient. It takes whatever life throws at it and ages beautifully with a unique patina over time. You can see the leather in all its natural glory - the color variation across the hide, vein markings, scars etc.- giving each wallet a unique character.

Oil Pull Up Leather is a very distinctive type of full grain leather. It is pre-conditioned with a lot of oils for suppleness. It is not coated with any finishes, and can scratch easily. But it has a peculiar quality of self-healing. A little rub on the scratched area, and the scratches disappear!
Made in Germany, Braided Waxed Polyester, Rated Strength 20 kg
This wallet may feel significantly firmer in the beginning compared to conventional wallets you may have bought in the past. The leather we use is much firmer and thicker, it will need a "breaking in" period as it expands a bit to accommodate the things you put in it (Pockets will be a bit tight initially).
The wallet is hand stitched using a single thread and two needles. This is a time honored saddlery technique called saddle-stitching that makes a very durable seam. The stitching will not unravel easily even if a couple of stitches break (unlikely since our thread has enough strength to hold up 20 kgs).
It takes 4 hours to carefully cut, hand stitch and edge burnish this leather wallet.
All edges have been carefully burnished with saddle-soap and beeswax to extend the life of the wallet.
