Constructing the Seafarer Wallet

Today I'm going over a bit on how I constructed the new Seafarer Wallet.  This is not an in depth post, however I wanted to share a bit of the process photos constructing the leather wallet.  Firstly, I sketched out a rough design on paper, then transferred that to Adobe Illustrator, made templates that I printed out on thick card stock, cut the templates and then traced the design on the Horween Natural Dublin leather in order to craft wallet.

I wanted to have a sort of wave shape to the pocket, which I was able to accomplish in Adobe Illustrator.  I am very happy with the results and also like the wave vs. fire aspect of the wallet, promoting a sort of 'balance' mindset.

Each stitch is made by hand. From start to finish, the wallet is crafted by hand.  Here is a demonstration of the saddle-stitch technique, where thread is stitched through the same hole in opposite directions for a stronger stitch than most commercial sewing machines.

I hope you've enjoyed this little window into the process of building one of our leather wallets.  This one is becoming a favorite of mine for it's rugged look and yet minimal design.  If you would like to purchase one, please follow the link below.  Thanks for stopping by!
