Hand Stitched Veg Tan Slim Leather Cardholder with Four Card Slots & Space for Bank Notes. Hand Crafted in London, England. Made to Order.
This Card Holder has been carefully designed to be as small as possible in order to fit comfortably into trouser or breast pockets. This item is perfect for those who would prefer to carry only a small selection of cards and some cash in the form of folded notes in the centre pocket. It is also great for those preferring to carry cards separate from cash in the form of small change.
Two cards should fit snugly in each pocket; meaning it actually carries eight cards.
Made from a choice of Waxy Brown Goatskin or Tan Belly Cowhide, with your choice of thread colour for the stitching.
Leather is a natural product and small variations in appearance across a hide do occur. This should in no way impact on the durability of the leather, and therefore the Cardholder.
WAXY BROWN GOATSKIN
TAN BELLY COWHIDE
DEEP SEA TEAL
Hand-stitched in the traditions of English Saddlery, using what is often referred to as double-handed or Saddle-Stitching. This traditional Saddlery style method of stitching has greater integrity than machine stitching.
No sewing machines are involved in this process, all stitching is done entirely by hand.
Choose which colour linen thread your Card Holder is stitched in from a myriad of jewel-like tones.
We suggest linen thread in Hot Chocolate to match the Waxy Goatskin.
Linen thread in Yellow Gold will give a more traditional appearance.
For a modern Stylish look; we suggest linen thread in Jade or Crimson.
Please note that Hot Chocolate is the closest colour to Tan Belly, but is not an exact match.
For a subtle neutral contrast suitable for all leathers, We suggest linen thread in Rose Taupe (rather than the icy white of Glacier).
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL OUR THREADS ARE LINEN.
NONE OF OUR THREADS ARE METALLIC OR POLYESTER.
This item is cut out entirely by hand without the use of a press and instead using a traditional Saddler’s Knife.
As this is veg-tanned leather, the edges of this Cardholder are polished to a high shine by hand. We do not need to coat the raw edges in plastic as is necessary with Chrome Tanned leather.
This Cardholder comes hand-stamped with our distinctive egallowayleatherdesign logo.
Corners are nicked to prevent unsightly folding and bending and edges are bevelled to remove sharp edges created when cutting the item out by hand. A Saddler works in the same way to ensure equine comfort and therefore the safety of horse and rider. Following this ethos creates an item, which is not only comfortable to use but a joy to handle.
