7 COLORS - 4-Slot Burgundy Shell Cordovan & Natural Leather Billfold Wallet
Bi-fold wallet handmade from cordovan and vegetable-tanned leather.
This wallet is the little brother of our classic billfold, designed to fit smaller banknotes. Having a smaller footprint, the bi-fold wallet is designed for smaller sized banknotes. Perfect for US and Canadian notes. Crafted with a combination of top-notch leathers, the wallet is done completely by hand with saddle stitching and hand-burnished edges and bevels. Made from a piece of Shinki Hikaku shell cordovan leather outer and natural vegetable-tanned cow leather interior, it features four card slots, two hidden slots, and a bill compartment—enough for all of your daily necessities. The stitching is reinforced at the stress points so it won’t come apart, even with a good yank.
The outer piece of shell cordovan leather is available in 7 colors, please check out the last photo of the listing. We could make the exterior of the wallet in any shell cordovan colors that are shown in the photo, matching it with a natural vegetable tanned cow leather interior.

About the leather
Shell cordovan is an equine leather made from the fibrous flat muscle (or shell) beneath the hide on the rump of the horse. Since the shell's fibers are the densest among the hide, shell cordovan is known for its strength and flexibility.
Made from wonderfully tanned vegetable tanned cow leather. Vegetable tanning is a traditional way of tanning using tannic acids naturally found from plant species. The natural appearance before painted, has a slightly brownish tinge over a beige color, with a natural, woody and earthy smell. Due to the nature of the tannins, a unique patina will develop and "carmelize" over time.
