‘6 Slot’ Stylish Hand made Leather Card Holder. Hand Stitched Stylish Veg Tanned Card Holder. Choice of Leather. Choice of thread Colour. Hand Crafted in London, England. Made to Order.
Treat yourself or a loved one with this stylish and popular card holder. Made from a choice of Black/Brown Waxy Goatskin: a hardy, charismatic leather, with a lovely ‘Pull-up’ appearance. Try Tan colour Cowhide or choose from Cowhide hand dyed in-house in our signature colours Penrhyn or Ardleigh.
‘Penrhyn’ is inspired by Red Chestnut coloured horses.
‘Ardleigh’ is inspired by Liver Chestnut coloured horses.
Pull-up Goatskin: If leather is described as ‘Pull-up’, it means that as it is bent and flexed, the colour lightens in these places. Over time this will give the surface grain of 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 Card Holder.
The pocket shapes of this Card Holder are inspired the angles on the lines of the London underground
Holds 12 cards (2 in each slot).
Dimensions when folded closed and containing cards = approximately 108mm x 76mm x 15mm.
When empty and folded up = approximately l7mm thick.
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 cardholder.

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 cardholder is stitched in from a myriad of jewel-like tones.
Follow the traditions of Saddlery, and match your stitching to your leather colour.

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 Card Holder 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 Card Holder comes hand-stamped with our distinctive egallowayleather 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.
