The outer of this piece is handmade from 100% full grain, uncoloured vegetable tanned leather. This is the most durable leather, retains the original grain which is highlighted by Fiona's hand dyeing. Each hand finished piece has a unique character and texture and over time develops a softer touch and patina which can not be imitated.

The inner of this piece is made from 100% factory finished calf leather. Calf leather is soft and strong without excessive bulk.   

Hand finished leather should not be left in the sun or allowed to dry out. A natural wax or oil based leather conditioner applied a few times a year, will protect and enhance the colour and shine of your piece.

What is Genuine Leather?
Why Hand Finished Leather?

Can you emboss lower case initials?

No, sorry, lower case letters are not available.

Can you emboss more than 4 letters?

No, as I emboss each letter individually using a rawhide hammer, and it is difficult to achieve a consistent line and spacing for more than 4 letters. Specialist book binders can emboss longer words, but this needs to be done prior to dyeing and will take an extra 2-3 weeks with an additional cost of around $95 (including two couriers). Please Contact Me to order.

Can you emboss the inside of the wallet?

No, I am sorry, but this is not possible. The wallet inners are premade, and the calf leather is factory finished and unsuitable for embossing. 

Can I have a different colour leather?

Yes, please Contact Me. If you wish to see WIP photos an additional admin fee of $10 applies.

Can you make it faster than completion time on the site?

This may be possible depending on  workload and availability of the premade inners. Please Contact Me to enquire. Should I not be able to make the wallet in time for the gift giving occasion, I can organise an personalised Gift Certificate.
