Sunday Wallet - Dark Cognac Dublin Leather - Multiple Thread Colors

56.00

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.  Here are the specifics on what make's up Horween's Dublin leather:

- Full Grain: Leather that has its surface left completely intact, showing all natural characteristics of the hide.
- Vegetable Tanned: A tanning method that employs vegetable liquors derived from tree barks. This method of tanning is very traditional and takes longer to achieve than chrome tanning.
- Aniline: Dyes and finishes that contain no pigment.  When used on leather they provide a rich, clear stain that allows the natural character of the article to be seen.
- Fat Liquored: Leather that has been nourished and conditioned with emulsified oils.
- Pull-up: The temporary lightening of certain leathers when folded. This is caused by displacing oil and waxes.

"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 COLOR OPTIONS** : Raspberry, Turquoise, Royal Blue, Scarlet, Lilac, Emerald, Kelly Green, Olive, Orange, Mocha, Brown (pictured), Ecru, Topaz Gold, Natural White, Tan, Black.

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.
