I call this simple still my "Wayfarer Wallet", as suits fast and uncomplicated needs for a quick exit from any situation... This folds, but doesn't have a billfold per se, but paper currency or receipts can fit on either side between the liner and outer leather, and two distinct slots for cards.
The leathers used are oil tanned Buffalo exterior and on inside pocket, and balance of the interior is Italian vegetable tanned horse leather, which is unusual in the US, but it is stronger and smoother than cowhide, and is utilizing a resource more commonly used in Europe and other parts of the world rather than adding to the waste stream.
The "Wayfarer Wallet" when open is 6 3/8" (16.2cm) wide and 4 1/8" (16.2cm) tall, and closed the fold is just over 3/8" (0.95cm).
I hand cut and trim all the pieces, and the stitching is with coordinating color of bonded nylon thread on my industrial machine. And all the edges are sanded smooth and hand burnished to a semi-gloss or glossy sheen. The vegetable tanning also provides not only a lovely aroma, but the leather will wear in and take on more sheen from oils in your hands as it is handled and used.
The current variations are, as shown left to right in the photos and noted in the images are brown bison exterior with:
WF-15: Natural lining with brown thread
WF-14: Dark carrot lining with brown thread
WF-16: Natural lining with olive thread
The horse leather is trimming from outside the region used for the Shell Cordovan, but is still high quality and denser, stronger & smoother than cowhide for its thickness.
I have also laser etched my shop logo "B8C" on an inside corner of the wallet. And please note, any items shown with the wallet are not included.
Shipping: The wallet will be in a linen or cotton bag for all classes. For within US, if you choose the FREE First Class option, it will be inside a small shipping box to ensure the rigidity so your wallet arrives as pristine as when it leaves my studio. If you upgrade to priority, the price is for a small flat rate box, but I will compare price to using my regular box, pending what's the best price for your location (I will refund any overage back to you, for upgrade or international!).
If you want special gift wrap, please message me--I will wrap in tissue, as well as include the bag in the gift box, but this will need to go into a regional rate box, and will be more expensive for not only the wrapping charge, but the shipping change. But I can provide you a quote and make this a custom order for you.
