Sunday Wallet - Dark Cognac Dublin Leather

Sunday Wallet - Dark Cognac Dublin Leather

64.00

This Sunday Wallet was an experimental project designed to be similar than the women's wallet in another listing, but is smaller in size.  Flipping the credit card slots vertical allows the wallet to fit into a smaller pocket in your purse or bag, but is easily accessible when you need to pull out your cards or cash.  Each card slot can fit between 2-3 cards, maybe more once the wallet has worn in.

The wallet measures approximately 5" wide by 6" tall when closed.  A brass button stud is used for a secure closure.  

THE LEATHER

Made with 4-4.5 oz Horween Dark Cognac Dublin, this leather is waxy and has a beautiful pull-up when stresses are put into the leather, giving it a marble look. 

"More rustic than our base Essex line, Dublin is a veg tan infused with a rich blend of natural waxes and then hot plated. It has all the supple characteristics of Essex with a darker surface color that showcases the natural grain.” - The Tannery Row

NOTE: 
Each of these leather items is cut from a larger hide.  This means that the leather will have minor imperfections due the life of the cow itself. These minor imperfections could include: scars, bug bites, stretch marks, brands, etc.  I always make a conscious effort to select the better portions of the hide, however, there may be some subtle imperfections on the pieces themselves.  These cows had a life, let’s honor them by giving them a new life, scars and all.

THE THREAD

Thread use in the photos: Brown Waxed Polyester cord.

Our thread is sourced from Maine Thread Company out of Lewiston, Maine, where they make some of the best waxed polyester cord we've gotten our hands on. This medium weight polycord is then used to sew the item together with what's called the "saddle-stitch" or "double-stitch", where two ends of the thread are passed through the same hole twice, allowing for a stronger stitch than a common lock-stitch sewing machine.  How?  When a lock-stitch from a sewing machine breaks, the rest of the thread will start to pull apart, but if a thread breaks on a saddle-stitch, the other thread in that same hole keeps the stitching together, allowing your item to keep from falling apart.

THE EDGES

The edges are burnished using a combination of steps involving gum tragacanth, beeswax and paraffin wax.  This technique seals the edges to keep your valuables protected and gives the piece a professional look.

THE HARDWARE


The brass button stud comes from a Massachusetts, USA based hardware manufacturer and will hold your wallet closed securely.
