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% tannery 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.
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 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.
