Billfold- Dark Brown Museum Calf

300.00

A timeless classic, the traditional billfold style has endured for good reason. Combining utility with style, this wallet looks great and always has what you need. Boasting eight card slots, two hidden pockets and a cash sleeve, this billfold design makes for a well organized daily carry. 

This billfold was hand made using the flawless dark brown museum calf from the Ilcea Tannery in Italy. This unique leather has a natural color variation that gives it a marbled look unlike anything you've ever seen. The interior cash sleeve was lined using golden calfskin from the Haas Tannery in France, creating an eye-catching color contrast while maintaining the same buttery-smooth feel throughout.  Utilizing the French binding technique, though time-consuming, creates a unique rolled edge that truly sets this wallet apart.  Finally, the billfold was sewn with the highest quality linen thread in the color beige and the edges were painted and meticulously smoothed to match. 

Each wallet is made using only full grain leather that will grow even more beautiful with time.  The process begins by transferring my personal template to leather and hand cutting each individual piece. One by one the pockets are thinned to reduce bulk and hand sewn in place with the finest linen thread using the incomparably strong traditional saddle stitching technique. Edges are hand burnished and polished to a naturally beautiful sheen or layered with edge paint and heat treated for a smooth finish according to your preference. Finally conditioner is applied and hand buffed before the wallet finds its way to you.
