This wallet features 6 credit card slots, licence display, a zipped coin pocket and a full sized zipped note pocket.The "How it is Made" below describes how Fiona made this item.


How is it made?

The personalised Leather Hiden Currency mans billfold wallet is handmade from hand finished, full grain, vegetable tanned, "raw" leather (russet) outer and a tannery finished, calf or Nappa inner. The outer leather piece is cut to fit to a genuine leather, tannery finished wallet inner (made in Australia). This measurement will ensure that the complete outer fits comfortably over the two gussets so the wallet can close easily. The fold line for the gusset is grooved. The leather is cased and the initials are carefully aligned and stamped with a rawhide mallet. Several coats of dye are applied and then the colour is sealed, waxed and polished. The leather outer is trimmed to size, corners shaped, edges bevelled and the stitching lines grooved around the perimeter. The stitching holes are then hand chiselled into the outer and dye is applied to apply colour to the corners and edges. The edges are hand burnished with a wooden burnisher. Then the whole cover is fitted to the wallet inner. Using the existing stitching holes as a guide, the majority of the holes are repunched through, one at a time with a stitching chisel tool and rawhide mallet, except for the area around the gusset. The two parts are stitched together using Irish Linen waxed thread in a two needle saddle stitch. Finally, a finishing wax and polish is applied.


Construction:

Genuine, hand finished, full grain, leather outer, Tannery finished calf leather inner. Handstitched with 4 ply waxed Irish Linen thread.


Initials specifications:

Maximum 4 letters.


Measurements:

95 mm high x 120 mm wide (when closed) x 230 mm wide (when open), plus 10 cms with additional trifold open. The billfold wallet has 6 credit card slots, licence display, a zipped coin pocket and a full sized zipped note pocket.
