When you buy something made from quality full grain vegetable tanned leather, you're buying it for life. And you can be sure that while it will last a lifetime, you can also be sure that it will never look quite the same. Natural leather like this is almost akin to a blank canvas, it will change and develop "patina" as it ages, the color will darken and richen as it absorbs the oils from your fingers and the indigo from your denim.
It's been a long time coming, but here is the newest wallet design, fresh from the Pigeon Tree lab! I wanted to create a wallet that resembled a trucker wallet, but didn't stick out of your pocket or feel cumbersome. I believe this wallet is the perfect balance between a standard bifold and a mid-sized trucker wallet.
This particular model has been tanned using what I call the "Sun-Soaked" method. Using a blend of several types of oils and waxes, and then tanning the wallet in direct California sunlight, the leather tans to a deep brown and gets you well on your way to a beautiful patina! Sometimes I have these in stock, and other times they are made to order. Allow 1-2 weeks.
6 side-loading card slots, 2 top-loading "hidden" pockets which are easily accessible even when closed (perfect for stuffing receipts) and a full-size billfold slot, plenty of room for you to burn a hole in your pocket with. Edges are hand burnished with natural bees wax. A stitched-in solid brass snap keeps the wallet closed, and will patina with that classic "bump" through the leather.
