Customizable - 4-Slot Black & Olive Green Shell Cordovan Leather Billfold Wallet
This wallet is the little brother of our classic billfold, designed to fit smaller bank notes. US and Candian bank notes would fit perfectly in this wallet, yet having a slightly smaller footprint. Crafted with top quality leather from the inside out, the wallet is done completely by hand with saddle stitching and hand-burnished edges and bevels. Made from Shinki Hikaku shell cordovan leather from Japan, 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.
Shell cordovan leather is available in 7 colors, please check out the last photo of the listing. We offer color choices for the exterior and interior so you could mix and match the leather colors to create a two-tone wallet. We could also make a one-tone version as well if you choose the same color for the interior and exterior.
~11.5 cm (L) x 8.5 cm (H), ~4.5" (L) x 3.35" (H)
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.
