How is it made?

The personalised leather Ladies Executive Wallet is made from tannery finished, full grain, leather outer and a tannery finished, calf or Nappa inner. The outer leather piece is cut to fit to a genuine leather, tannery finished wallet inner (made in Australia). This measurement will ensure that the complete outer fits comfortably over the two folds so the wallet can close easily and accommodate being full of cards. The leather is trimmed to size, corners shaped,  and the stitching lines are traced around the perimeter using an edge groover. The stitching holes are then hand chiselled three at a time. Then the whole cover is fitted to the inner, and the magnetic clasps are fitted to the outer and the inner. After accurately measuring the nameplate, two holes are punched through the leather cover, and the nameplate is hand riveted. Using the existing stitching holes as a guide, the majority of the holes are repunched through, one at a time with a stitching chisel tool and rawhide mallet. The stitching holes around the fold of the are hand pierced individually using an awl. Next, the two parts are handstitched using Irish Linen waxed thread in a two needle saddle stitch. There is a final trim, then the cut edges are sealed by carefully hand painting with several coats of the wax based edge coat.

Construction:

Genuin, full grain, tannery finished leather, hand stitched with 4 ply waxed Irish Linen thread to a genuine, tannery finished, nappa or calf leather inner, stainless steel engraved nameplate attached with high wear, nickel plated rivets, high grade magnetic clasp closures.
