Handmade Veg Tanned Leather Bifold Wallet. 8 Card slots, 1 pocket for notes. Black or Brown Waxy Goatskin Leather. Hand Crafted in London, England. Choice of leather. Choice of thread colour. Made to Order.
Indulge yourself or a loved one with this rugged yet stylish wallet. Made from waxy goatskin it has a lovely pull up nature.
This wallet features eight card slots inside, two of which are designed to house multiple cards. The pocket shapes were inspired by looking at the London Underground tube map, and we have used this profile for a number of years in our six slot cardholder design.
There is a single pocket for bank notes, due to the nature of this type of construction creating a somewhat thicker wallet overall, (approximately 13mm at it thickest point). Dimensions H:90mm x W:116mm
This type of Waxy Goatskin is what is referred to as pull-up leather, which means that as it is bent and flexed, the colour lightens in these places. Over time this will give the leather a more varied appearance and add to its individual and rugged look. The waxy appearance adds to its durability and will give a smart yet casual feel to your wallet.
Leather is a natural product and small variations in appearance across a hide do occur, especially in this type of leather. This should in no way impact on the durability of the leather, and therefore the wallet. Rather it will create an item which is clearly unique to its owner.

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 your Wallet is stitched in from a myriad of jewel-like tones.
Follow the traditions of Saddlery, and match your stitching to your leather colour.
We suggest linen thread in hot chocolate to match this charming Waxy Goatskin
We suggest linen thread in rose taupe if you are looking for a neutral contrasting thread.
The example in the main photo above was stitched in ivory coloured thread.
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 Wallet 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 Wallet 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.

Please exercise extreme caution if cleaning the inside of your Wallet and take care to protect the inside and untreated part of your Wallet with a piece of card or plastic.
