Calfskin Slim Billfold - Burgundy

295.00 495.00

These wallets were made by Bernd Kreis in Obertshausen outside of Frankfurt, Germany. Mr. Kreis' family has been making small leather goods since 1963. His attention to detail and fine work are unparalleled, and each piece is hand finished.

The leather used in this case is a 100% vegetable tanned American calfskin, tanned at Horween Leather Company in 1949. There are a very limited number of these hides that have remained in stock for nearly 70 years, from a time when the Union Stock Yards still operated in Chicago proper.

The simple exterior of the wallet features a single hand stitched line on each side. The compartment for paper bills has been left unlined and the cards are stored vertically in the interior. These two features make for a wallet that is very thin when full, and carries discreetly. This wallet fits both Euros and US Dollars. All edges have been hand waxed and burnished for a refined and elegant appearance.

Please note that due to the age and nature of this leather, there may be areas of slight discoloration. This product will darken and improve with age and use.

Limited edition. Each wallet ships in a custom grey wool pouch.

Dimensions: 3.5" W x 3.75" H
